We have all seen enough sitcoms and comedy movies where some character is, for some far-fetched reason or other, compelled to tell the truth. It
somehow always backfires and the audience is taught
that honesty isn't always the best policy.
Yet, on a moral level, we are taught
that "truth is next to Godliness" It's a mixed message that can be confusing. On a conspiracy site such as this, one could say that because the
government controls the media, the idea that some truth needs to be held back, "because we can't handle the truth" is an appropriate course of
action in certain situations. Of course we can extrapolate that "truth control" by the government is, at times, necessary. I can agree that there
are times when truth must
delayed but, ultimately we should be told the truth. For example, there are untold volumes of information that is
being withheld about WWII. The information is being withheld for periods of time as long as one hundred years so as to protect certain persons' and
their families because of actions that were taken during the war that might not have been viewed positively at that time. An example of this is the
Bombing of Dresden. But someday, all should be revealed to us. I only hope that I live that long.
