Truth is its own reward

If you can find it, that is.  Very early in this blog, I wrote that the truth is a slippery thing.  What I meant by that was that you may think you've got it, and believe that you got it, but you don't really.

If it is the truth that you are after, you will find it eventually.  It may be a difficult path, however.  It may be fraught with real dangers, as there are those who don't want you to know what the truth is, because in finding it, it will be a threat to themselves and they know it.

The threat comes when there are those who will punish you for doing what is to the best of your knowledge to be right.

I think people aren't facing some truths out of being just plain stubborn, and this is what makes me say that they are being stupid.  The stubborn nature isn't strength of character if the cause of it means that it doesn't heed reason.  Eventually the truth will out.  Refusing to face up to the truth won't change what is false into the truth no matter how much force you bring to bear against it.

That's what we seem to have today.  These people think that their wishes will make things true when their wishes have nothing to do with it.  It will prove itself if it is worthy.  Otherwise, it will fail.
