In a time of universal deceit - telling the truth is a revolutionary act.
~ George Orwell
This is a time of universal deceit. Lies are everywhere and if they are heard often enough they are believed as truths. My head is spinning with what people believe today and how very easily they just jump on the bandwagon and never question. I came across a short article by Michael Brown with quotes to 'preserve our moral sanity' for a time like this and thought you might like it too.
'More than once in the last few years I’ve asked myself the question, “Has the whole world gone mad? Has everyone in our society lost the ability to think clearly? Are people no longer able to process facts and information? Are they so dominated by their emotions and by sound bites that truth and logic don’t seem to matter?”'
A few of these quotes will be going on my fridge so I can remind myself daily that I am not crazy, the rest of the world is! And remember:
'A dead thing can go with the stream, only a living thing can go against it.'
~ G.K. Chesterton
I found this article by Allen West interesting too. Paralleling the time after WWI to present day.
