Yes = and that for the reasons that the truth to be spoken out may sound incredidible or it may refer itself to others around or the speaker adversely .
 -- vedapushpa, Bangalore - India     
    I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men. ~ Woodrow Wilson. Abolish the Fed.

    The truth can be told anonymously and posthumously but, if truth's expression is limited to such a cowardly, lack of integrity, and fearing slave society, can it be absorbed by those that come in contact with such ? Truth will make you free. When combined with love, faith, charity, and courage of conviction, the quote's focus fades into obscurity.
     -- Mike, Norwalk     
    As circumstances vary from moment to moment - however slightly, then perceptions also change. The absolute truth about anything, forever eludes us in this universe. The best we can do is a close enough approximation to satisfy the occasion - that suddenly, has just passed.
     -- Ray E., Vancouver, B.C.     
    Describes political and religious 'truths' very well. Think about all the wars from the War Between the States, WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, and on and on, New Deal, JFK, the War on Drugs, 911, the war on 'terror', banking stimuli, etc.. We are expected to believe all kinds of current false flags just as we have been taught about the past ones. Only when the perpetrators are close to death or after do the facts come out.
