Truth Coming Out

This Week, Mark Zuckerberg Sided with Donald Trump. History Won’t Forget It.

I’ve noticed this is the most popular post on my site. Thank you Google. So, since I’ve left Facebook, I thought I’d hang a message HERE as to WHY. Read it. Do it. Stand up. Shout Out. No More. NOT ONE SECOND. NOT ONE PENNY. The only message the extremists get is NO MORE. STOP NOW.

According to a 19th century legend, the Truth and the Lie meet one day. The Lie says to the Truth: “It’s a marvellous day today”! The Truth looks up to the skies and sighs, for the day was really beautiful. They spend a lot of time together, ultimately arriving beside a well. The Lie tells the Truth: “The water is very nice, let’s take a bath together!” The Truth, once again suspicious, tests the water and discovers that it indeed is very nice. They undress and start bathing. Suddenly, the Lie comes out of the water, puts on the clothes of the Truth and runs away. The furious Truth comes out of the well and runs everywhere to find the Lie and to get her clothes back. The World, seeing the Truth naked, turns its gaze away, with contempt and rage.
The poor Truth returns to the well and disappears forever, hiding therein, its shame. Since then, the Lie travels around the world, dressed as the Truth, satisfying the needs of society, because, the World, in any case, harbours no wish at all to meet the naked Truth.

The world famous painting- “The Truth coming out of the well” Jean-Léon Gérôme, 1896.

Special thanks to Pamelina Hovnatanian for pointing this out to me.

  1. Another ending to the story is that when the Truth got out of the well to chase the Lie, she refused to wear the clothes of the Lie and therefore kept walking naked as it is, and since then that’s why is much easier to accept the Lie dressed as Truth then, the naked Truth as it is.
