I’m not the kind of person to believe every written or spoken word, and I encourage others to be of like mind.
Often before arriving at an opinion I will browse through several books, pdf’s, court docs and various articles- I also consider the source, it’s integrity, and whether something is to be gained by misrepresentation.
Having gone through that process if I express an opinion it is because I believe it and I am committed to it.
That isn’t to say an opinion expressed by me is infallible, only that I have attempted to do the work myself rather than leave it to another or become a bot in an endless chain.
It’s fairly obvious that below a certain level no one is familiar with all the nuances and information relevant to the issues addressed in this blog- some may think they are but the reality is something entirely different. I for one know I am not, odds are none of us ever will be.
Too many vested interests, too many liabilities, too much face saving and avoiding accountability, too much turf to protect, and too many reputations.
In the end we are left with a blurred photograph, but one sufficient enough when enhanced with words written and oral sprinkled with a little common sense to arrive at a reasoned determination.
We all have enough personal experiences to understand when something doesn’t sound right-when it flies in the face of what we know to be a norm.
If something stinks there’s a reason for that, same as if a lie is told, or if a story has to undergo multiple revisions in an attempt to keep pace with what becomes known in an effort to offset it.
If individuals were murdered and buried in secretive graves within WK2 membership in Mensa isn’t needed to understand that those within WK2 are responsible, and should be held responsible.
Rhetorical twists and turns, denial, or wishful thinking, cannot alter that simple fact for anyone with an IQ above ten.
Deception and wishful thinking might seem to, but reason never can.
Anyone addressing these issues is tasked with a burden, something more than expressing an opinion on the net-it is an assumed burden for the majority, not an obligatory one as it is for the survivors of victims.
That being the case we should assist in lightening the load, not adding it to it-and the best way I know of to do that is to devote the time and effort to arrive at a reasoned opinion, to question, and when necessary, confront.
Common truths are shared, they belong to everyone-lies belong only to those who give voice to them.
