The Death of Honesty

By —— February 22, 2023 

Honesty is dead. Its time of death is not certain, but it might have been the day Bill Clinton, in a national address, looked into the camera and proclaimed, “I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky...”............People believe habitual liars because we, ourselves, are honest in most situations and we trust others to speak the truth. In fact, the bigger the lie, the more likely we will believe it. 

  • After seven years of lies, distortions and misinformation told by his political opponents and a corrupt news media, that have proven to be wrong, 59% of Americans still have a negative view of Donald Trump.
  • Those in the current administration claim to be environmentalists and say global warming will destroy the planet if we don't curtail use of fossil fuels immediately. 
  •  They claim that electric vehicles are the only answer, and gas powered cars and trucks, need to be eliminated, despite the fact that we don’t have the minerals to build them.
  • They say our borders are the safest they've ever been, and
  •  crime is under control in the inner cities despite irrefutable evidence to the contrary.
  • Our military leaders tell us that it's in the vital interest of the United States to send billions to Ukraine to stop the Russians despite evidence of widespread financial corruption.
  • Our teachers tell us it is important for our children to know multiple details about sex starting at the age of five, 
  • and that they should attend drag queen shows to learn about homosexuals and transsexuals.
  • Many Americans still believe our administration’s doctors and fear the COVID virus. 
  • Over 70% have supposedly gotten at least one injection despite learning it doesn’t work and has multiple deadly side-effects.

When people refuse to even consider they are being lied to, their minds will jump through hoops to continue believing. The psychological term is “cognitive dissonance,” “The inconsistency between what people believe and how they behave motivates them to engage in actions that will help minimize feelings of discomfort. People attempt to relieve this tension in different ways, such as by rejecting, explaining away, or avoiding new information.”...........To Read More....
