"The truth will set you free, but first it will piss you off." ― Gloria Steinem
"They have millions of money and millions of obedient soldiers. We have only one thing, but that is the most powerful thing in the world: Truth." - Leo Tolstoy
We all know what the problem is ... massive ignorance and apathy. This year, resolve to be a part of the solution.
I know about as well as anyone that telling the truth won't make you popular. It's often ugly and unpleasant, like airing a flesh wound. But it's a necessary element in healing. The sooner people realize the depth and breadth of deception being perpetrated on them, the better they'll be able to deal with it. Ignoring a flesh wound leads to infection. Ignoring infection leads to gangrene. Ignoring gangrene leads to death. Things have been pretty bad lately, but there's plenty of room for them to get worse. A lot worse.
People vilify Iran's President Ahmadinejad for implying that 9-11 was an inside job, which was used to justify illegal occupations. But what if everyone found out he was right on that score? What are the implications? Could that prevent an attack on Iran, which may possibly lead to a third world war? Would that realization help us to clean up the "Mighty Wurlitzer" lie machine that we Americans have been living with for so long? Well, I still have hope. Please join me in my resolve to keep on spreading the truth in the coming year. Here are some sites to help get you started:
