Every time I tell the truth I get a negative response.

It's to the point where I can't blame the perpetrators for what they do anymore. The world simply allows it. And by the world, I mean you specifically. Yes, YOU! It's all your fault. Everything everything, it's all your damned fault!

You're so ignorant you would sit there and tell me that you would've done everything differently, but I know you. I know you better than you know yourselves... and where I dare to breath the truth, you all deny it till you're blue in the face. But I know you would have done the same exact thing that I have done... only you would not have made it this far. You would've been destroyed beyond all recognition.

Yet here I am, almost as evil as the perpetrators all because I just say no to drugs. Here I am, just as invisible as they are. I'm the devil that you don't want to believe in. I'm the chunk of reality that you deny simply because I make you uncomfortable.

Well! I'm not finished here yet but you can continue to try to turn a blind eye to this. You can sweep me under the rug but I'll continue to cry out even as the mob appears and leaps forward to cover my mouth in a hurry. Cause there's always the point at which you arrive when you just... snap. And you realize you're gonna get hurt no matter what so why not get hurt over what you know is right.

Someone you know is a victim of child pornography.
Someone you know is a child predator.

They're just not talking about it.

That's right, rage against me for speaking the truth; only you would go so far as to call me the devil! And if you're going to hurt me, world, then go ahead and hurt me. Cause every time I tell the truth, at least I am set free. And I'm all that should matter really, only because no one else is going to care about me. But just in the case that you're curious and want to care, if you wish to shed even a smidgen of your ignorance... then telling the truth will set you free from a prison of lies. But first you must be able to discern the truth from the lie. And then you must learn that suffering in silence(which is the prison of lies) is not any better than suffering loudly(telling the truth will set you free)! And I dare you to consider how it might not benefit any of us much longer to continue to sit there and deny it.

Like the above poster, I have absolutely no clue what you're talking about, but this seems better suited to the rant forum.

Are you a victim of child pornography...?

There is a long and honourable lineage of people who told the truth, and ended up paying dearly for it. You're in good company.

If you speak the truth, have a foot in the stirrup.- Turkish Proverb

I have always found this to be true.

The world simply allows it....

It may seem so but the world consists of people lost in their own ego that don't worry about anything but their own needs and desires. They simply don't care about truth. Great communicators like MLK didn't awaken them by rubbing their face in the worlds poo, he instead promised a better world for those that had the courage to demand it. So instead of concentrating on evil, we should plant seeds of love, that will eventually destroy all the evil in our world.

Child pornography...and child preditors......It's right there in the middle paragraph as plain as day.

I do find it very concerning that these abuses seemingly are allowed to exist in society(see the recent Pope thread), hushed up and that often victims being told it's their fault. Yes, these things are hard to stomach, hard to talk about but perhaps that is allowing them to continue?

It does seem this is the wrong forum for this rant.

A little wisdom ...

The truth cannot be told, only experienced.

Truth is not words. Truth is felt, observed and experienced.

One who knows truth, does not need to preach, as the truth will set self free.

In other words, don't worry about what people think or believe, or how they react. That is their own energy and choice.

You have your own.

Regardless of what you say, some will respond positively but others will respond negatively.


It happens between sports teams, religions, political parties, and so on...


It would be great if everyone had respect for each other and even if there were disagreements it could be done with kindness and without name-calling or violent speaking, though.

It is a fitting piece for this forum. The paradox of "telling the truth will set you free", can actually bring a rash of hardship and confinement.

You cant always tell the truth or you would be hurting peoples feelings all day. Just don't ever read statistics of crimes that show certain races or religions in a negative light, crazy people just cant except it and they will call you names, like racist. Your rant reminds me of Hillary bragging about getting that child molester politician out of trouble because he is a democrat, don't make me past the linkS. easy enough to find.

Consider this.

Two friends are on a camping trip together, Bob and Joe.

The first night they get ready for bed and Bob slips right into his sleeping bag. But Joe takes his sleeping bag out and shakes it up and puts his arm in it before he gets into it. Bob acts like Joe has just done something totally crazy and asks why Joe did what he did.

Joe says, "Everything is ok, but one time I got into my sleeping bag and a snake was hiding in there and it bit me and it hurt, so now I check my sleeping bag before I get into it every time."

The next night they both shook out their sleeping bags, checking them for snakes.

Not everyone will listen, but... sometimes, the truth is told and the truth is received.

Also, we're not islands. We are entangled. We are social beings. So if you told everyone that your favorite color was blue, but everyone refused to believe you and kept telling you that your favorite color was pink... I think that would concern you, very much.

Thank you for sounding very wise and contributing here.

Well George Washington was famous for telling the truth about chopping down that cherry tree.....

Trouble is, the story itself was a fabricated myth.
