Truth?

 
 

Truth.
It’s a virus.
And it’s contagious.
Like Covid.
That’s why the power elite lives in morbid fear of it.
And why they have so many vaccines against it.
 
You know the usual vaccines.
Shaming, intimidation, sanctions, firing, torture, and, yes, even death.
 
Since you know the above, let me ask you.
Which side have you been on?
The giving – or the receiving end?
 
I know.
You spend years at the receiving end , in all due patience, and then you get to be at the giving end.
Reward for good behavior.
 
The door(s) of recruitment into the elite are kept open.
You just have to know the passwords.
And they pass it on, one day, after you have passed all the tests.
Have you?
Or, are still accumulating the needed brownie points?

The soul-less.
They inherit the earth, not the meek, every time.

 
Just give me some truth, sang the ill-fated John Lennon.
And they vaccined him.
He also sang ‘Imagine’.
I could have told him, otherwise.
Get real, John.
Dreams are for they who’re asleep.

There’s an old Sanskrit idyll.
Satyameva Jayate.
It means only the Truth is Victorious (in the end).
Read that with care.
Truth is victorious, but not the truth tellers.
The latter, alas, get vaccined.
 
But you already knew that.
I really admire you readers: you are so much more savvy than I am.
So tell me: which do you fear more?
The Virus, or the Vaccine(s)?
Never mind.
Don’t ask, don’t tell?
Right.
