Truth be told its always best.
I vividly recall my early days in school when certain things were absolute; one of them was truth. One reason to ensure a clapping was lying and back in my days that was no fun.
The subject was so ingrained in you that whole class sessions were built around it.and these were lessons not only from the bible, but stories from the lives of men who lived in the not distant past. Lincoln. Churchill and Washington, just to name a few. We were even given what was then called "nursery rhymes" Speak the truth and speak it ever, cost it what it will;he who hides the wrong he did and lines to hide it makes it two and Truth pressed to the ground will rise again .
That was a long time ago and truth has gotten old and shaky and he is not strong enough anymore, so lie has taken over. In fact, he has virtually pushed truth out of the way and now claim to be the real master of the halls of justice. We see this take over in every land and in every sector of society.
Gone is the days when men took an oath to solemnly speak the truth;instead what they ment was to solemnly lie. They do it with such zeal and seriousness, that they can only be called professional liers. This is a disease that has taken over our society from north to south ,east to west and there is no one is exempted from the curse.
Kings and president prime ministers and congressmen judges and lawyers rich and poor are all in the same sorry lot and we are left with no one to trust. Some are so educated that they use their education to frame words and phrases to trap the unwitting. They double down on their lies while expection others to speak truth to them, all forgetting that what goes around comes around.
The last bastion of truth in our society was the clergy but recently as we have seen,they are now riding on the same cart.They are liers and they expect to be lied to and they even make some wonderful accommodations for lying.
Lying is not a good thing. A society steeped in it will soon be weakened and its moral foundations will crumble and it won't be long before someone will say here lived a great Nation........Nevrob...
