M. Tait's Jus' Thinkin' It has been mentioned, here, before, that seeking and dealing in truth is significant. Things aren't always the way we would like them to be. We are often called upon to deal with them as they really are. We may need to ask ourselves, am I dealing with factual information or popularly believed and repeated informa- tion. Just because some- one says something, doesn't make it the truth and just because it gets repeated doesn't trans- form it into the truth. I have heard it said, if you repeat a lie loud enough and long enough, people believe it. Here is a quote, said to be from Hitler's propa- ganda minister, Jospeh Goebbels. "If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be main- mined only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military con- sequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State. Not dealing in truth has consequences, they cannot be put off forever, usually get worse with time. Are we asking the questions we need to ask, in the places we need to ask them? Are we get- ting honest answers? This may take some thinkin' M. Tait Did You Know... A study says that China is set to overtake the U.S. in scientific output in the next two years.
