The difficult thing about "the truth" is that it shatters all the illusions planted by our parents and our schooling. The truth is we are economic slaves and the American Dream, for most of a myth. Freedom is a myth. Justice is a myth...Abolish the Fed and Restore the Republic.

Additionally, man will occasionally stumble over the truth but most time he will ignore it or not believe it because of his previous or current educational direction and/or acceptance, / self desired information cultivation, his political / power / financial / etc. perception(s), his emotions, his lack of integrity under peer status, or his religion. The stumbled over truth, such as natural law's freedom, liberty, and a sovereigns inalienable rights, as was the original intent of the constitution's representative republic use to be a stumbling block to socialists and despots of all types in their carrings-on, but no longer.

Most people don't want to hear the truth but prefer platitudes.

if your parents planted illusions in you instead of the truth, you shall grow into a fool. the illusions that schools teach are known as political agendas which are being pumped into childrens' minds instead of teaching them to use their own minds to solve problems and to shape their own political beliefs. we are only economic slaves if we look at life in that way and allow ourselves to become slaves. the american dream is only a myth to those people who choose to believe so because it makes it easier to deal with their own failures. as far as the truth, many people ignore the truth and would rather live in their own illusion, no matter what the truth is.

Who can handle the Truth?

Don, good statement, please jump in more often.

Gee Don, I beg to differ that the American Dream is only a myth because of personal failures...It's a myth because the TRUTH is that the American Dream is largely unnacheivable for most under the banking / tax regime condoned by our political leaders that robs us all blind every, I think I'll go for a dip in the pool. :)
