    Be careful who knows your secrets. They just might be an enemy someday who knows how to use the truth.
     -- Ken, Allyn, WA     
    Probably true when people believed in truth. To day any thing you want to believe in becomes the truth. Facts no longer matter. You can say there were no weapons of mass destruction and it will be the truth no matter how many were used or have been found. You can say their is no Al-Qaeda in Iraq no matter how many of them are captured or killed there. You can believe that morality is a personal choice in order to be free of the restraints of morality. You can believe that truth is an individual’s choice. You may believe that the Soviet system failed, but the thought processes and belief systems taught there are obviously still being taught in our schools and in our society in general. Our society is now more vulnerable to this kind of mind rot than ever because we do not see the source of it. Great quote in its time but today the lie rules because so few even can tell you what the definition of truth is.

    I've never expressed the truth with bad intent. The mentally ill suffers from true statements because of the their criminal corruption of the language. The vast mentally ill populous suffers from true statements expressed by the well intended mentally healthy who do not understand the criminal expression. For this reason you mentally ill want to interfere or even harm the good gentleman who holds all of our lives in his hands.
     -- Fredrick William Sillik, Anytown     
    I'm sorry but this statement is uncoordinated and I did not pay proper attention to it, but I saw an opportunity to address some important concerns and took that opportunity.
