My husband and I have been enjoying an autobiographical book on tape. I’m not sure I can recommend it yet because, while enlightening, challenging and thought provoking, F-bombs drop like candy from a pinata..it is very intense!
The man “speaks truth to power” though, and I am all about it- regardless of how it’s presented.
Sadly, if we think about it, truth has been taking a sustained beating .. a backseat to urgent agendas that simply will not be detoured by inconvenient facts. It takes a big person to repurpose 10,000 non-refundable T-shirts because the galvanizing motto printed on it is revealed to be patently false.. right? Ditto with any headline, tweet or post promoting a falsehood that has already received 100,000 “likes.” Who’s gonna put that red Ferrari back in the garage?
It’s a shame, but we seem to be living in a post-truth era. Truth is too uncompromising and refuses to bend to our preferences and wishes. Yeah, THAT kinda boss.
We prefer flexibility and adaptability..
Let’s face it, we prefer lies.
