…so help me, God!
Presumably that is tacked on because God sees and knows everything. That puts Her/Him in a pretty powerful position. As we will recall from the repeated advice in our schooldays: Knowledge is strength!
I had a sort of epiphany just as I cycled across the creek on my early morning ride. That is how we know about right or wrong, because God can see everything and is not fooled by our rationalised, exculpatory bullshit.
What is more, he keeps the score, so he can direct traffic at the end of the line: for every one going up 40 go down, even more if you are fat and rich (remember the eye of the needle?)
But I digress. I think that the Man (dated I know, but it includes the Woman) should be entitled to the truth. We should have to answer the Police truthfully, we should not be able to hide from inquiry and the Man should be able to track our movements, hear everything we say and see everything we do.
I do not say all this should be public knowledge; what I mean is that properly constituted authority should have access to that information for the purpose of effective government.
That means that the Man could have the same power as God as far as knowledge of the Truth is concerned.
So if we have a chip that enables us to be tracked wherever we go, all our conversations and movements are recorded and truth serum is administered when we are being questioned by authorities, we will be unable to deny any wrongs or rights that we have done.
Sadly, Satan clearly demonstrated the fallibility of those who aspire to be too much like God and he was an Archangel! We are too frail, corruptible and weak to be able to handle the truth.
But it is getting worse… can anyone actually tell us the real truth about coronavirus statistics and impact?
One thought on “Nothing but the truth”
I’ve actually given up trying to work out which version of the truth is correct – even the medical genius’s can’t seem to agree, and then there are the TV experts, the Facebook experts, the print media experts, the social media experts, the taxi drivers (who, let’s agree, are experts at everything) and Karen the manicurist at number 15.
So I’m just taking it a day at a time and what will be will be!
