"How does a defunct and discredited diplomatic process continue to masquerade as a success despite its utter failures?" An Al Jazeera analyst writes about the Middle East "peace process". "The short answer is bullshit," says Marwan Bishara, the network's senior political analyst. "In is attempt to define bullshit and theorise about its uses and meanings, Harry Frankfurt, the Princeton philosopher, has differentiated between bullshit and lies in his book On Bullshit, and concluded that bullshit can be more dangerous than lying. Bullshit is more than a word; it is a chronic widespread system of rhetoric and representation that mystifies the truth. It has increasingly become a way of communication not only in the private sphere but has become part and parcel of Western propaganda."
