LEAVE THE TRUTH ALONE - LAISSEZ LA VERITE TRANQUILLE
If we knew the power of truth we would stick with it and allow it to defend itself. The reason why a lot of people go to all sorts of lengths to defend their position is because most truths have actually been tailored. On the other hand, those who know that what they have is the truth do not scurry around trying to defend it, they just keep putting out there until people and circumstances will align with it. In the world we live in the rich and powerful are constantly trying to make people believe their own fabricated version of the truth and that is the reason why government and corporations are always trying to persuade people through propaganda and adverts to believe their version of the truth. When we do not have any hidden agenda, we spend less on trying to convince people that what we are offering is the truth, that is why people have come up with saying that truth is relative not absolute. As the elections in Nigeria get closer and closer, it is almost a sorry sight to see how politicians are scurrying like little frightened rodents trying to defend, deny or accept what they said or did not say. It is a pity that we have to remove layers upon layers of information for us to be able to access the truth especially when it comes to the world of politics. Wouldn't it be easier and wouldn't life be a lot easier if we spoke the truth and allowed it to defend itself? This is my opinion, what is yours? I would like to hear from you, please post your comments.
