It is said that Liberty cannot be granted by men, but is an inalienable right given by God. Is truth also an inalienable right, inspired by God? It is also said that any question asked will be answered in like kind, a universal law, and that is what some consider to be truth. But as you read the last words of this essay, you might not only question if truth is at all possible, but that you have any right to it at all. Or perhaps it is just the opposite. Let us look…
The following is an open-ended journey. It is designed to have you think, and to make your own decision. It seems both simple and so profound; you might even question and answer your reason for being in the process. After all, no one can answer this or any question but you, as it is your responsibility entirely. Truth seems to be a gift from God, one of many, but perhaps it is a misunderstood one. It was something that created the idea, a concept called responsibility. It was given to us in the light of truth, your consciousness, where free will resides. Remember, how you ask this question will determine the quality of the answer, and perhaps it wasn’t a lie after all, but truth in its purest. At that moment Eve, and all of her children and their children exclaimed, “I am.” But there are many who believe this a curse, and that our intellect was from the devil, and it was a lie.
Two hundred years ago a man named Goethe had a profound revelation while contemplating the meaning of the word TRUTH. He found that in his world errors were constantly being expressed as truth, and for a variety of reasons. Some of these reasons were gross misunderstandings of facts and the fault of those interpreting them, and others were intentional distortions given to them from an external source, and yet with time, both might come to be regarded as true. Goethe wrote:
“Truth has to be repeated constantly, because Error also is being preached all the time, and not just by a few, but by the multitude. In the Press and Encyclopaedias, in Schools and Universities, everywhere Error holds sway, feeling happy and comfortable in the knowledge of having Majority on its side.” –Goethe
It seems that most all human beings would rather the reality of their life be based on Truth, because without it life just cannot hold any intellectual meaning. So important is it, that it actually holds our mind in check from the insanity of fear. You see, we have in us the ability to conquer anything, to overcome any adversity, any misfortune, but if we have no truth, we run blind. Blind, without a sense of purpose or direction. Without truth there is nothing on God’s green earth that can have any meaning, and yet if you yell a lie loud enough, and long enough, it will ultimately be regarded and accepted as truth. Hitler wrote: “Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.” And so, this duality must be considered, as one or both may be our damnation or salvation…
What kind of person would intentionally lie, knowing the price of it, the value of truth? Who would distort history, bend a fact, withhold information, or conspire with others in the shadows to deny truth in the light of day? It has to be someone with no conscience. It has to be someone who cares nothing for anything but themselves, and their safe microcosm. But is that the truth of this matter? Is it that simple?
It takes a pretty naive person in this so-called information age to trust another to tell us truth, and how terrible is that for a person who thinks they have no control of their destiny? What does it do to a gentile and trusting heart when one realizes that we have been betrayed by the daily news, our history books, advertisements, movies and music and newspapers, and that it was all intentionally done. What cold duplicity, as coercion subverts the masses’ confidence, and that it was empirically driven by the world’s elite. Driven, driven like cattle to be slaughtered, slaves to be used or abused at the lash of control and power, the power of might is right.
It seemed that the internet might finally be the virtual salvation of man’s need to find truth, but now it is quite evident that just the opposite is true. Goethe’s word’s are a haunting reminder of this, as we attempt to understand ourselves in the face of political, social and economic forces who have the veritable power to reshape not only our world physically, but our reality as well. And in the process, we grapple, we wrestle for our minds to be free, our life to have liberty, our will to be our own volition, and there are those who would take this all from us. They would take it all, and even lust for our very souls.
I remember a Tony Robins’ seminar once were he questioned our perceptions of reality by asking the audience what was the meaning of life, i.e., our reality. He said “The meaning of life is anything you want it to be.” and so, trying to grapple with the concept of what is truth, can we also assume that TRUTH is anything we want it to be? No, some speculate that truth is truth. Truth cannot be divided, and we cannot taint it, or white-wash it. If we do, even the attempt to do that, and all of life is a farce. That is where belief comes in. Belief, and the creation of faith and trust. Faith is trust in what we cannot validate as truth.
It is like denying Liberty to another. Another who is so different from you, so dissimilar from your reality, you feel constantly at odds. Still, when you deny Liberty to them, to express themselves in any way, so long as they do not step on your ability to express yourself…, live and let live. If you do not, then the Liberty movement is nothing but a farce. Can you see that?
In our world, mainstream media is used as a tool, and it has nothing to do with truth. Our government too is a farce, a dog and pony show, designed to steer you, to coerce you, to dominate you, and they are almost to the last man bought and paid for. It is smoke and mirrors, and owned by international corporations and international banking intuitions. It is used to promote an agenda, to hide a fact, or to twist the TRUTH to favor a biased schema. The government is also involved in promoting their own brand of truth, and the CIA has had a long association with media outlets to propagandize and promote their various agendas. And we have made life and death decisions based on their distortions of truth, and blamed ourselves when we failed. Blamed ourselves, felt guilty, as rules changed in the last minutes, and we lost our savings, our jobs, our future, our liberty, our constitution, and our country. We could not win, because truth was not given, and the cards were stacked. You were not privy to that truth, but does that negate your responsibility to seek it?
We thought we did not have the aptitude to understand it, that it was our decisions that were flawed, and at fault. And little did we know it was all a grand scheme, an illusion designed to fail. And the blood and sweat of our ancestors, the sacrifices they made, the dreams that they had, is taken by the lie. A lie, intentionally and premeditated, and for all intent and purpose, unaccountable. Unaccountable, because there is no amount of education, no amount of preparation that can foresee a power elite that promotes an error as truth. Our Christian standard prohibits and inhibits our ability to comprehend this evil intent. It is something so dark, it is beyond sensory ability. Never the less, it exists, and there are men with a black mindset capable of anything, and their control is nearly complete. All that is left is the cap-stone.
Know this, there is an absolute truth, and men have had the need to search for this since he was first able to understand concepts like accountability, responsibility, love, honor, and all of the finer and higher ideals that have taken us from the mentality of the animal to the mind of consciousness. And truth, it seems, cannot be denied.
Without truth, what can we consider ourselves to be but slaves? Slaves, and we are considered so, even within the folds of our own Holy Bible, who some take verbatim, and others a metaphor. Perhaps the errors, the lies, are justified according to our own scripture? Perhaps we put these Old Testament words in the mouth of Jesus?
When the Lord your God brings you into the land you are entering to possess and drives out before you many nations . . . then you must destroy them totally. Make no treaty with them, and show them no mercy.
When you march up to attack a city, make its people an offer of peace. If they accept and open their gates, all the people in it shall be subject to forced labor and shall work for you. If they refuse to make peace and they engage you in battle, lay siege to that city. When the Lord your God delivers it into your hand, put to the sword all the men in it. As for the women, the children, the livestock and everything else in the city, you may take these as plunder for yourselves. . . . This is how you are to treat all the cities that are at a distance from you and do not belong to the nations nearby. However, in the cities of the nations the Lord your God is giving you as an inheritance, do not leave alive anything that breathes. Completely destroy them—the Hittites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites—as the Lord your God has commanded you.
Is our destiny as a nation to be enslaved? Are those who are in charge of our nation attempting to enslave the world? Or is it possible both are going on simultaneously? Or is our Christian destiny the quest for the light of truth? The quest to find God? Is that the truth? Isn’t it up to you to formulate your destiny? Isn’t that the knowledge of good and evil? The knowledge that Eve sacrificed her immortality for, her understanding that we die?
My suggestion in this liberty movement of the intellect, if truth is held in any regard, is to read both Kant and Hegel, instead of focusing on dogmas and speculations. Perhaps then, with your intellect, truth will be revealed. This revolution is said to be one of intellect, so perhaps we should get to work. Maybe if we can question, and finally separate ourselves from corporate-controlled mainstream news, whose only objective is to serve their corporate masters, truth may finally be won, and so too the Liberty movement.
