"He who permits himself to tell a lie once, finds it much easier to do it a second and third time, till at length it becomes habitual; he tells lies without attending to it, and truths without the world's believing him. This falsehood of the tongue leads to that of the heart, and in time depraves all its good dispositions." -Thomas Jefferson
And when that happens, along with indifference to others, to facts, and global reality ... we suffer "leaders" & followers who are

Crippled Inside


Song/Lyrics by John Lennon

You can shine your shoes and wear a suit
you can comb your hair and look quite cute
you can hide your face behind a smile
one thing you can't hide
is when you're crippled inside

you can wear a mask and paint your face
you can call yourself the human race
you can wear a collar and a tie
one thing you can't hide
is when you're crippled inside

Well now you know that your
cat has nine lives
nine lives to itself
but you only got one
and a dog's life ain't fun
mamma take a look outside
You can go to church and sing a hymn
you can judge me by the color of my skin
you can live a lie until you die
one thing you can't hide
is when you're crippled inside

Well now you know that your
cat has nine lives
nine lives to itself
but you only got one
and a dog's life ain't fun
mamma take a look outside
You can go to church and sing a hymn
you can judge me by the color of my skin
you can live a lie until you die
one thing you can't hide
is when you're crippled inside

One thing you can't hide
is when you're crippled inside
one thing you can't hide
is when you're crippled inside

OMG...
Only room for one deity in the mind of Trump believers/cultists, and it is definitely unfamiliar to heaven - or Bible teachings!

Steve Bannon and U.S. ultra-conservatives take aim at Pope Francis

Hmm
Fold this into the discussions of sin, atheism, theism, and agnosticism.
And the state of humanity.

Lord of the Flies (1963)


William Golding's Lord of the Flies is an #allegory and, therefore, each character and element of the story represents an aspect of #human #nature and #society. For example:The story begins when a group of English #schoolboys find themselves without adult supervision and stranded in a uninhabited #tropical #island after the plane that was evacuating them from a #war zone was shot down. As the #boys begin to adapt to the new #environment, they struggle to maintain the rules of their "civilised" world and a #microcosm of human society develops as the ultimate #cautionary #tale ( quite relevant in the context of #Trump and #USA #imperialism ). Needless to say, William Golding's Nobel Prize-winning book offers many more details and insights into his examination of human nature, while Peter Brook's film adaptation, a work of art in itself, serves as a visual companion to the book.
