I suppose that many people would rather be told a good lie instead of the real truth because we enjoy living in a fantasy world. If someone tells us the truth and it hurts us in some way, we would rather say that is a lie and listen to someone who tells us what we want to hear.
All the lies over the years build upon one another so that the lies we are told today is much bigger than it was a generation ago. The lies have to become more elaborate to cover up the previous lies. Our foundation in this world is being eroded away at alarming rates and we don’t even realize it. It is disturbing if you are a deep thinker and you ponder such things of real meaning. I miss people with real integrity and goodness. ~b
