A Pack of Lies

In America, truth lies buried beneath a pack of lies. Whenever somebody tries to talk about truth, the liars begin to bray. They don’t stop until discussion stops. There is no debate here. We’ve lost our understanding of the meaning of words. What will change this? The only way most of us ever understand anything is through money—an inherently disastrous way to live. The financial crisis of 2008 was a warning—not just about the financial system, but about our whole imperial way of life. The Universe is intelligent; the Universe speaks to us. We were taken right up to the edge of our worst fantasy of disaster. And then we were momentarily let off the hook. But we’ve chosen to ignore the warning. The underlying problems remain the same. And the liars shout down anybody who tries to point out what’s really going on. It’s the Empire Game, full speed ahead. Best be careful.

    “Truth lies buried beneath a pack of lies.” Yes. There are divisions between rich and poor, educated and unschooled, different races; but I think that the deepest division of all is between those who have a natural-born passion for truth, reality, and are willing to work hard to discover it; and those who think that reality is whatever they prefer to believe. And what they prefer to believe is always what makes them most comfortable. Emerson said, “It’s not enough to wake up; you have to stand up.” But what about people who haven’t even gotten to the wake-up stage, because they LOVE to doze?

      What you say is largely true, even in the best of times. What I was saying, though, is that we live in peculiar time that’s dominated by aggressive liars. Conditions are such that you can’t gain any ground by calling them on their lies. That’s what you call insanity.
