LIE TO ME!

After all I’m just a red blooded American. The world is a dangerous place and the Truth is way too painful to face. Please lie to me. There is no Truth that can not be avoided successfully, at least temporarily. And lie to me again, for that lie passed on to history has become the truth. We see it everyday. It’s been going on for a while now and it’s getting worse.

Last night our fearless leader “W” invoked again one of his biggest lies: that somehow the invasion of Iraq was a response to the 9/11 attacks. (It makes me wonder if that’s why, through complete and utter incompetence, they allowed the planes to hit the World trade center in the first place. But that’s another discussion.) Which is typical for this administration whose method is to lie big and lie often. When a lie gets repudiated; tell it again, bigger and with more detail. And make sure you call into question the facts that repudiate the lie, make sure you call those facts a lie. Hide the truth; repeat the lie again. There is a very large segment of us that accept the lies on faith, without logic or truth or facts to sustain them.

George Orwell wrote in his essay In Front of Your Nose:
“We are all capable of believing things which we know to be untrue, and then, when we are finally proved wrong, impudently twisting the facts so as to show that we were right. Intellectually, it is possible to carry on this process for an indefinite time: the only check on it is that sooner or later a false belief bumps up against solid reality, usually on a battlefield.”

I would add that maybe an accounting ledger would be a solid reality as well. Such as where are the billions of dollars that have gone missing from the battlefield?

What happened to the good old days when politicians would just equivocate, and just avoid talking about facts that were upsetting to people. Which grew in to a time to an accepted practice of prevarication; using unverifiable facts to deviate from or pervert the truth. Sad to say, but that has evolved into a web of deceits that would make George Orwell blush with embarrassment at its audacity. Lie big, lie often and never admit you know the truth. Avoid the truth at all costs. Any illumination of the Truth could bring down the whole house of cards.

Bring it down I say! Huff and puff and blow the house down! Or better yet, with soft spoken words of Truth, call the liars out. Have faith in the facts. Know that pathological liars will never admit a lie; they’ll just lie again to hide the old lie. Even if only in your own mind, say it to yourself: “that’s a lie, that person is a liar”.

After all, it is only in ones own mind that experience exists.

And that’s where ones own responsibility starts.

Seek Truth!

Think Peace!
