“All We Need is the Truth” ~ Bill Miller

It’s an election day here in the states. Yes, ‘truth’ has been on the minds of many of us–here and around this Earth.  We don’t seem to get much truth from anyone these days. Judging from the mainstream news coverage of WikiLeaks’ latest information sharing regarding the nature of war–truth is NOT a virtue or a commodity to be valued or desired.  Yes, it’s unpleasant to face the reality of making war, occupying countries and dominating other people by force.  It’s very easy to evade any mention of a ten years long military event in the states. If you don’t search for news coverage you can easily not know that there are soldiers dying and committing suicide, that civilians are killed without any regard for the value of their lives, that flag covered coffins arrive in various cities for homecomings of soldiers. Yes, there are many distractions in the states to avoid dealing with the truth of war.  Murder, rape, torture do not make for nice dinner table conversation.  During the Vietnam War it seemed impossible even for a child like myself to avoid war news. The truth of death and destruction arrived with the morning paper, with every edition of the nightly news, and with the radio music.  I still recall the story of a helicopter pilot’s death on the front page of the paper. “Bubbles” died on his very last flight mission. I can still see his smiling face in the photograph taken by a fellow soldier.  We don’t get such Truth these days. Denial is in high demand regarding everything from the grim nature of the gulf oil disaster to the killing of children in the Afghan countryside. Who are we? What are we? Seriously, what does it mean to be a ‘human being’ in these times? Are we simply commodities for corporate entities to buy, sell and trade? What does it mean to be humane? What does it mean to tell the truth? Why is truth-telling a ‘crime’? What the hell is going on?
