Reflections on Truth

20 11 12

My grandmother sent me five very short emails last year, just before she died.

I learned a lot by pondering their words.

I reproduce them here hoping they'll mean something to you, too...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"This side lies about that side...

"A 'neutral' source disputes that they are lies...

"The 'neutral' source is found to be lying..."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"This company makes a killing by acquiring that company...

"A highly-reputed magazine disputes the company's ethics...

"The magazine is sued for libel..."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"This country smacks that country with bombs...

"That country continues to kill its own civilians...

"The Internet talking-heads decide that both countries are defending their God-given sovereignty..."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Humanity has harmed its members, countless times...

"The members have harmed themselves, far too often...

"Almost everyone seems to act from false memories and unjust premises.."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"I tell a lie about you...

"You tell a lie about them...

"We all suffer........."
