The worst state of the world would be when everything is considered true and nothing false. But, demagogues, manipulators, thieves, con artists, and liars still try to bend or hide reality. So, although hotly contested, truth is still recognized — at least by those who set out to violate it. And top liars try to get popular by calling honest people liars. It’s still a despised bunch.
How was living as a Jew in modern Poland for you?
I really couldn’t complain.
Then, why did you leave?
I just told you: I really couldn’t complain.
I was fired for telling a joke!
What?! What kind of joke?
I joked that Jews determine where the defense money in the US go.
Well, where is people’s sense of humor?!
What would you say if I joked that you’re a Nazi?
But that’s not funny.
Neither is funny what you ‘joked’ about Jews.
The vast majority of the GOP Senators now acquitted Donald Trump from orchestrating, encouraging, and refusing to stop a murderous attack on the American Seat of Government. We all know that they lied. The only difference of opinion is if the lie was justified. What a scandal that his stupid foot soldiers are facing jail time and their boss goes free out.
Burma, China, Russia, Iran block the Internet, social media, and the voice of the People. This is clearly because they want to stop the truth from being told. They don’t say: we want to stop lies from being spread.
Social media, on the other hand, try to stop the spread of fake news and conspiracy theories. Not because no one should know the truth. Rather, such falsehoods disturb the mind and society.
No new laws are considered to stop people from giving away their money.
No stronger bars are put before jail windows to keep people out or in front of bank windows to stop people from filling other people’s safety boxes.
No political candidate or advertiser openly claims s/he has the best lies.
Only magicians could brag about having the best tricks.
