The thing about truth is…

The thing about truth is it…

does not require hate.
does not require anger.
does not require bribes.
does not require rhetoric.
does not require flag waving.
does not require name calling.
does not require a raised voice.
does not require disrespect of others.
does not require threats and violence.
does not require any backroom dealing.
does not require corroboration or a quorum.
does not require plays on fear and insecurity.
does not require drama and emotional displays.
does not require stereotyping and fear mongering.
does not require a 24 hour media machine to provide talking points.
does not require an ever shifting narrative to confuse villain and victim.

No, those are the tools of lies and half truths, the latter being the most destructive deception construct.

Facts simply are facts.

Truth simply is.

And those that ignore truth to peddle lies will inevitably be undone by them in the end.
Public discourse abhors a truth-less vacuum. Truth must rush in once the cracks form in the lies.

The only question is how many will suffer before that day comes.
