    If one has taken courses in psychology or courses in addiction reversal, or engaged in community outreach or volunteer work in that field one knows that when a person is in their last throws of an addiction they violently and manicly lash out at anyone near by.
    Fantasies and the acceptance of illusions and propaganda can be an addiction also, so it can be a dangerous thing to present facts to those in such a state.
    There are facts abour religion and politics that many fear, and there are facts about Blackhistory that White Supremacists fear.

    However becoming adult and either faceing the facts or investigating the facts for oneself can be a pleasant or unpleasant experience depending on ones state of mind and level of maturity,
    but as so many thought the earth was flat, and others persecuted and tortured those who stated the earth revolves around the sun, and not the other way around, truth has a way of coming to the fore front, by virtue of MAAT and although some healing is stressful, healing will take place none the less

    Capitalism a romance

    Michael Moore made the title of his revealing documentary Capitalism , a romance, because in romance folks can not see anything wrong with their lover, even when it becomes obvious,
    and that is how unfortunately cpitalism has kept sway over so many inspite of the obvious

    with the amount of information on the web of a verifiable nature, free of spin and opinion and from numerous resources, so that 4 or more can be used to determine an hypothesis,

    why or how has research become a dirty word?

    There is just a big difference between useless information as opposed to useful facts...

    there are facts that are universal facts and there are conditional facts....
    there is propaganda that seem like facts but really arent....
    there are facts that are true in small sample spaces....

    so i guess it depends on what type of facts u r talking about....

    truth on the other hand is too big of a subject to touch on at work now....very complex to say the least....

    one love

    When your 17 year old daughter or son must do a 10

    page type written term paper, and must research a subject, believe me they and their teacher know what the real deal is and where to find it in the library or on the web,
    same for those who have youth in college, cause many of us who have gone to college and HS have forgotten

    i hear u....my point is that it's hard to say anything is 100% nowadays....and the line between fact and fiction can be convoluted to say the least.....

    an example of what im sayin....10 years ago if u wrote a term paper on the cosmic body pluto and said it was a planet u would be writing about fact....today that fact would not be a fact....

    useewhatimsayin?

    relativity is relativity

    Then a correction would be made.
    In regards to science it can all be said to be relative, as the evolution of chemistry from alchemy, astronomy from astrology, and quantum physics from physics but in regards to human relations, that which does harm or does heal, is predicated on a common grassroots understanding of altruism, and avarice as well as what Malcolm termed as human rights.
    Those who were termed to be uncivilized by the explorers, were more civilized then the savage behavior of the invader.
    As Dr. Clarke stated civilization is predicated upon the active action of being civil, towards one another.

    The indegenous native have no problem looking at the truths of their past via their oral traditions but the invading explorer has a problem looking at the truths about his own religion and his politics,
    which were usualy hidden from his examination.

    just like the color spectrum my brother....
    fact and truth have many shades because all situations and people are not the same....
    another example....
    the star football player is late....nothing occurs when he sits down in the film session
    the backup nose tackle come in late the next week and gets chewed out...

    the truth is most facts depend on who u r talkin too....
    such is the life inside of the matrix....
