    The only place a perfect right angle ever CAN be, is the mind.

    I would have preferred to call it Systematic Defamation as opposed to Ritual Defamation because the term Ritual gives it a religious bias. In any event, I now have a name to describe exactly what we have witnessed with all the fake news and censorship we have seen over the last few years.

    Not really; in addition to the religious connotation it also has a wider meaning that makes its use in this context very appropriate. For example, a birthday party is a ritual.

    From the OED:

    Quote Of, pertaining to, or constituting a social or psychological ritual; conventional, habitual.
    I'm in complete agreement with your second sentence though.

    To add to the above observation in Galactic Geometry about a Right Angle, I thank the poster for giving me the opportunity of pointing out that the only place a Straight Line can exist is in the MIND. This is because in working out the Quantum Structure of our Universe, there is never-ending Twisting and Turning and Motion. In the end you will find that existence is all in our minds, along with the Rules of Geometry.
