On Truth

We hate truth and abhor it as a culture.

We form “polite fictions” to keep us from saying the truth out loud; we let media companies distract us to keep us from contemplating the truth around us; we worship cynicism and detachment as a culture to keep us from voicing the truth in our hearts. We drive ourselves to collective insanity to avoid coming to terms with anything approaching the truth.

Is it that the truth is too big? Or our hearts too small?
