Drivel from Oprah about 2012. Could be worse, she could have said “Panic!”

ParanormalPopCulture: Oprah Winfrey sounds off on 2012.

In the January 2012 issue of O: The Oprah Magazine, the queen of all media gives her take on the 2012 Mayan Calendar, end-of-world predictions. “Some people predict a cataclysmic collapse of human civilization, while others foresee a time of spiritual transformation,” she writes in her “What I Know For Sure” column. “Of course, no one knows what will actually happen in 2012.”

“One thing I know for sure is the power of intention. And I intend to approach this year as one of great promise. No doomsday for me: I’m going to do my part, within myself and within the world, to bring about a shift that lets us live more authentically, more lovingly, more intuitively, more creatively, and more collaboratively.”

More ugh! Oprah panders to people who don’t think too deeply. They prefer to be spoon fed a positive message using pablum like “great promise”, “power of intention” and “intuitively”. Blech. Gives me the shivers.

I suppose it COULD be worse. If she said prepare for doomsday, sadly, people probably would.

    It’s a bit touchy-feely and she didn’t, apparently, go into the skeptical point of view that it will be a year like any other, which she should have, but I’m not shocked or offended by her message. It just doesn’t seem to warrant the anger I’m sensing here, when there are people out there actively conning people and such. I also don’t think that, psychologically speaking, it’s entirely off-base to stress the importance of our intentions and our mental attitudes in our lives.

      Oprah has long endorsed silliness of Dr Phil, Dr Oz, The Secret, and other non science based stuff. She tends to send people, mostly women, into intuition type decision making, endorsing people like Jenny McCarthy and spreading her nonsensical “Mommy instinct” antivax crap. That’s where the vitriol comes from. She dumbs things down. For someone in her position, that is irresponsible. She creates and panders to sheeple.

    when dealing with Oprah, you must always remember that the only thing bigger than her ass is her ego.
