On December 18, at approximately 8:23 pm E.T., Wisdom was viciously attacked in Washington D.C. by a mob of 230 men and women leaving Wisdom with life-threatening injuries. Wisdom was quickly taken to Walter Reed Medical Center and is reportedly on life-support. A team of doctors there, along with a team from Johns Hopkins and the Mayo Clinic have joined their efforts to bring Wisdom back from what seems to be the brink of death.
Speaking on the condition of anonymity, an aide of one of the attackers told this reporter, and I quote, “It’s about time! Wisdom is an aged fool that keeps getting in the way of our plans and agenda. Wisdom needed to go into retirement on a deserted island.” I managed to locate Wisdom’s twin, Common Sense. Common Sense has been in a weakened state for years due to not being used. Common Sense told this reporter, again I quote, “I have long dreaded this day. I now fear my own death is more imminent now that ever. If my twin, Wisdom dies, then I shall also die.”
Lady Liberty arrived as soon as she heard about Wisdom’s condition. In a prepared statement she said, “I am gravely concerned about the future of Wisdom. Your founding fathers relied heavily upon Wisdom to form this republic. Even those founders who did not believe in the God of the Judaeo-Christian heritage, recognized both the importance and need for Wisdom. They knew this Republic would never last without Wisdom. And myself? If Wisdom dies, I know that they will successfully kill me.”
It is my personal observation that throughout the history of this famed republic that Wisdom has been attacked many times. Each time Wisdom prevailed. But this time? I am left unsure. All we can do is watch and wait. We will stay on top of this developing story until Wisdom dies; or Wisdom prevails.
The above quote of George Orwell is certainly apapoe in today culture. I’m not certain when he wrote this, but it is prophetic, nonetheless. Though he was a staunch democratic socialist, decades later his perspectives are ringing true. I remember reading 1984 back in high school. In 1973 I remember thinking, “This could never happen here in the U.S.” It didn’t in 1984, but if he had entitled that book 2020, I wouldn’t be so naive.
It’s happening now. Truth is being redefined by cultural experiences and the views of a few who become vocal. Case in point: Hallmark. Hallmark dropped ads on their channels because of same gender people were getting married and kissing. Now Hallmark Spineless Board of Directors have changed their minds due to the threats of 3.5% of the people. This statistic comes from The Williams Institute at the UCLA School of Law.
It is not just the sexual identity, or lack thereof, that is at the core of this sickly and unsound illness that is imbuing our current culture with it’s foul regurgitation that traces its roots to the Garden of Eden. Truth is no longer a measuring stick–but an ethos that is concerned with those concepts that make people feel comfortable, at ease and justified. It is a commodious truth that people have gone after. Maybe I should have said “commode”.
Society today certainly hates Truth tellers because “truth” no longer means TRUTH! Truth means feelings, unsubstantiated hypotheses, and whatever a small group feels is truth. Those who embrace time tested and proven TRUTH are hated and berated because they do not follow a commodious truth. A small percentage of the population wants to dictate to the rest of us how we should feel, what we should think, what we should say, how we should act, and most importantly–surrender Truth to them to define.
I am not a conspiracy wacko, though someone had to be on the grassy knoll, but friends and readers, 1984 is quickly coming upon us. . .UNLESS we choose to be undeterred with the real meaning of TRUTH and to speak it. . .speak it with love. . .speak it with resolve. . .speak it regardless if anyone agrees with it. . .and not compromise the TRUTH for a commodious lie.
