“Truth is truth
To the end of reckoning”
Shakespeare, Measure for Measure, Act 5, scene 1.
Truth by Jules Joseph Lefebvre (1836-1911) French painter, oil on canvas, 1870
Is there anything more hated than the truth? People work very hard to hide knowledge of all sorts of behavior, thoughts, words and deeds. If people lived and behaved with common decency, mutual respect and tolerance they probably wouldn’t have so much to hide from others. Current affairs range from the imprisonment of a man for revealing some truth about how the world operates to the exclusion of the participation of the people on the front lines of environmental devastation from the “talks” in Cancun. Huh–now why wouldn’t anyone truly concerned with addressing the issue of climate change want to hear from people already experiencing the consequences? Oh yeah—the profit motive is still in play in certain minds that believe the endgame is making money instead of survival of everyone, including their greed driven asses. Apparently it’s okay to do negative things as long no one is ‘caught’. It seems we’ve come a long way from Watergate. Not that anyone was behaving better during Nixon’s tenure in that house that tries so hard to claim the purity of wearing white. Nixon, 1973, Wounded Knee, South Dakota = some very bad times for Lakota people. Now it’s perfectly acceptable for arrogant politicians and very ignorant–but sexually attractive –women to advocate violence and murder. Obviously I missed the inclusion of such family values in the moral minority’s spiritual handbook. Or did someone blackout the entire New Testament? Now a new war has commenced—the war for the internet, a cyber war of hacked off hackers fighting Big Brother and all his known associates. If you think the outcome of this engagement means nothing to you—think again. True colors are being shown, the lines have been drawn and crossed. The internet offers information and knowledge. Knowledge is power. If the internet is “controlled’ in order to prevent the sharing of knowledge, then where will the power be?
