All We Know
Is there anything to write about that hasn’t already been written? Is there anything to be said about humanity that hasn’t already been said? The news, it’s always the same; so-and-so said this and everyone is outraged, or everyone laughed, or everyone wept or no one did any of these things. Or there is another invasion, another explosion, another bomb, and responses were voiced, blood spilled, bodies mangled, voices – silenced.
The news lies to us, the politicians lie to us, the journalists lie to us, the commercials lie to us, the experts lie to us, and we lie to each other and to ourselves. This is what we refer to as our “world view.”
So is it our fault if that is all we know? Yes, I’m afraid it is, for you see there is really no one else to blame.
