“Tell the truth” is an effort to create a viral movement on the web. – Me
My main article about this is on my newer blog here.
It explains to some extent how I got the idea for starting a Twitter “movement” scheduled to continue through to the end of this year.
The idea is a little whimsical, but it was born out of a desire to do – something.
From the point of view of someone who was raised to be honest, then later worked for over 25 years an a group that understands the spiritual dynamics of dishonesty, as well as the more practical results, I walked back into a society that is obviously…
…built on lies.
When you build a whole civilization on false premises, those who dwell in it can come to find themselves in a very difficult condition. When things go wrong, they are virtually helpless to correct the situation. Because they will be lied to about what caused the problem, will believe the lies, and then will work to correct a wrong target, which will only result in another situation for the group – often much worse than the first.
To demand the truth…
…is only the first step in a potentially quite long process of repair. And of course, there is no guarantee that just because truth is demanded, that truth is what will be delivered.
But, if nothing else, my “movement” serves as a clean statement of purpose. Survival, and beyond that, abundance, depends on those trying to survive having access to true data. Thus “tell the truth” equates, roughly, to “we want life” “we want prosperity” “we want happiness” and “we want peace.” It is a demand that is sufficiently challenging to, perhaps, improve the honesty and responsibility even of those making the demand. And that is very very key.
I hope the idea catches on.
