The Power of Lies

*** begin quote ***
The reason I am writing about this is to illustrate how history is falsified in behalf of agendas. I am all for civil rights and participated in the movement while a college student. What makes me uncomfortable is the transformation of Lincoln, a tyrant who was an agent for the One Percent and was willing to destroy any and every thing in behalf of empire, into a civil rights hero. Who will be next? Hitler? Stalin? Mao? George W. Bush? Obama? John Yoo? If Lincoln can be a civil rights hero, so can be torturers. Those who murder in Washington’s wars women and children can be turned into defenders of women’s rights and child advocates. And probably they will be.

IF history is falsified, then …
… what can I believe.
Very simply, that which I can see and hear. Or that which I can “prove”.
The Earth may very well be flat, but there’s a lot of “evidence” that “proves” it isn’t.
Have to remember the difference between the “LAW of Gravity” and the “Theory of Evolution”,
Oh, and those things that the politicians and bureaucrats make up are not “laws”.
Calling a cat a lion doesn’t make it so. And visa versa.
