Most people have no idea what truth is or the process of finding it. The truth is as unpopular today as it has always been. Yet the pressure against the truth is becoming more intense because the truth is rising like a monster in front of everyone`s faces. The truth is like a mountain range right in front of us and it is ugly because we have chosen to live without it. Truth though is stubborn and cannot be banished so easily.
Sometimes the truth is easy to see and is measurable right down to the dollar. Talking about mountain ranges of truth let’s start with 200 trillion in international debt and that is probably a conservative number. We can debate all day about what is going to happen to that debt, about what it is presently doing to millions/billions of people around the world, and how badly that debt will crush the future, crush the elderly and the young as well as countries, states, cities and towns.
Though they say that the truth will set you free we have made truth into something ugly because we deny it so much. The more we have ignored the truth the uglier things have gotten and now literally there will be hell to pay. This is the most dangerous period we are heading into for in addition to everything that will fall apart governments will respond only in their own self-interest to survive.
The truth is we humans are ugly. We are wiping out the beauty of our planet with our ugliness. As long as we do not want to look at our own ugliness it is impossible to be beautiful. Beauty is becoming rare and there are some people who would like to put beauty into extinction. If we let them do that then everything will darken—as if things were not dark enough already.
The light always shines and that is why darkness gets defeated yet rises again and again to snuff out the light. There are many reasons we have never gotten our collective acts together. Certainly, leadership has been a sore spot in history. We have a lot of confusion about who we are, mixing religions, races, sexes and social economic classes. Our religions confuse everything with their violent tendencies to create separations yet it is all hidden behind a false veneer of peace.
That is snow in the Sahara Desert and it never snows in the Sahara. The truth is that our planet is cooling dangerously and there is plenty of snow to prove it. Sunday, Dec. 18, the average temperature across the Lower 48 states of the U.S. is colder than any time all last winter. As this plot of hourly temperatures shows, the average temperature is 16 degrees. F, which is 4 degrees colder than any time last winter.
The ultimate truth, whatever it may be, is tough meat. It is unending and ever becoming and that is why in the end it is so hard to completely defeat. That does not mean the bad guys will ever stop trying. The earth is going into the deep freezer but the global warming maniacs keep telling us the global warming will never stop. Some of these maniacs are worrying about the incoming Trump administration fearing they could receive personal attacks and death threats simply for doing their jobs. How about simply for lying? The Trump administration has asked for lists of people involved in climate change programs and as the world freezes over it will be interesting to see what happens to these people.
The truth is that Donald Trump is anti-status quo, anti-elite, anti-liberal. His election is a demand for attention, for debate and for dialogue which is one thing liberals and progressives have shunned. Just look at the public debate about global warming. Liars in general do not welcome open debate and dialogue. Let us hope the best side of Trump comes out when he takes office and let’s hope the establishment does not kill him for being so anti-establishment.
Obama is the king of untruth or said another way the biggest liar in modern history. A years-long forensics investigation into the computer image of the long-form Hawaiian birth certificate image that Barack Obama released during a White House news conference during his first term and presented to the American people as an official government document concluded it is “fake.” Americans have had a fake president for eight years. That made him the perfect man for the job of chief liar about global warming.
We are not Compassionate
What is missing in too many of us humans is compassion. Compassion is the understanding of suffering. Buddha of course said, “Life is suffering,” so we must be denying our legitimate suffering because we have lost most of our sense of compassion. Carl Jung said “Neurosis is always a substitute for legitimate suffering.” Scott Peck said, “The tendency to avoid problems and the emotional suffering inherent in them is the primary basis of all human mental illness.”
Pain and suffering are universal human constants. Openhearted people seem to suffer more simply because they are more open to feel. How we relate to our own personal suffering and the suffering of others sheds much light on the basic foundations of our personalities. “There is much to be said for the constructive contribution of suffering to creative and spiritual life; suffering can temper the soul,” wrote Daniel Goleman, author the book Emotional Intelligence.
Because we and especially our leaders are without compassion our entire way of life is bankrupt and that even includes the world of medicine which has become cruel because it has not wanted to look at the truth of all the people medicine hurts and kills every year.
The truth is that we cannot trust politicians.
What seems to spook people now is the possibility that everybody in
charge of everything is a fraud or a crook. Legitimacy has left the system.
James Howard Kunstler
What is the truth? Is it what we say it is? Is it really a good idea to put neurotoxic heavy metals like mercury in childhood vaccines? What is the truth of that?
Will we ever have the courage to deal with the kind of truth that has the power to transform not only people but our institutions, society and the world? Probably not because there will always be someone around to argue with the truth and we do have too many psychopaths and sociopaths running things.
Truth Vs Belief
Objective truths exist independent of our subjective natures and our opinions and beliefs about things. We can believe whatever we want and as passionately as we please but believing something is so does not necessarily make it so, though it is true that lies become truth to people who believe in the absolute truth of their beliefs. The truth is most people cannot tell the difference between a conceptual idea/belief and reality itself.
If you are a person of truth and you hear the truth it kinds of excites us. Truth, though, if we are not living it, is almost always unbearable to hear.
Paul Craig Roberts asserts that there is a Western War on Truth, saying, “The “war on terror” has simultaneously been a war on truth. For fifteen years—from 9/11 to Saddam Hussein’s “weapons of mass destruction” and “al Qaeda connections,” “Iranian nukes,” “Assad’s use of chemical weapons,” endless lies about Gadaffi, “Russian invasion of Ukraine”—the governments of the so-called Western democracies have found it essential to align themselves firmly with lies in order to pursue their agendas. Now these Western governments are attempting to discredit the truthtellers who challenge their lies.”
The truth is that whenever you hear the media attacking some group as being “racist,” “xenophobic” and “sexist,” understand that the people doing the attacking are being nasty. Want to know the truth about Islam and how it treats women? A young woman who received death threats after going out without her full-body dress in Saudi Arabia now faces being lashed after she was arrested. That is just the tip of the ice berg.
Carl Gallups sounds like he is talking the truth saying, “I think that the rich and elite are becoming increasingly aware of the dangerous and potentially unstable world in which we now reside,” he warned. “Massive instances of civil unrest, even in America, are becoming a very real possibility. Internal terror attacks, swelling illegal alien populations, an influx of Islamic refugees, increasing racial discord, ambushing police officers, the rule of law continually being trampled by the political elite and an almost complete collapse of trust in the mainstream media – all of this has led to widespread cynicism and distrust among the population as a whole.”
