DESPERATION SELLS TRUTH | 2002-01-12
Lake High tells a great joke about a con man who had spent years giving his son advice about how to lie to people. Finally the son asked him, "Dad, is there ever a time when you tell people the TRUTH?"
The father stood there, totally stunned by the question. He thought deeply and replied, "Well, son, in a desperate situation, ANY GIMMICK will do."
This equality nonsense sold very well in the 1960s and in earlier times. But now brown hands are hovering above the nuclear trigger, and we are headed toward a whiteless world.
Not only is the situation desperate, but even the blindest might soon see it for what it is. Everybody knows what the lies are, and the Big Lie of Equality is putting us in an obviously desperate situation.
When people get desperate they also get real.
It might soon be time for the Truth Gimmick.
