A lie doesn’t become the truth, wrong doesn’t become right, and evil doesn’t become good, just because it is accepted by a majority.

A lie doesn’t become the truth, wrong doesn’t become right, and evil doesn’t become good, just because it is accepted by a majority.

Throughout history, there are countless chapters in which the truth has been severely distorted so as to further the evil intentions of a ruling group of people. Whether founded in greed, power, religious fervor, or other motives, the results are always horrific for the unsuspecting mass that absorbs these lies with a horrifying enthusiasm. 

Most of these untruths are founded in the expectation that in the creation of a nonissue, an unsuspecting population may be marginalized so as to enable the manipulation of the circumstances to the benefit of the few masterminds who are operating the scam.

I can list all of the chapters of history that bear this out. Most have resulted in mass genocide.

A lie can make its way around the world in the time that a truth is just lacing up its shoes. 

Ignorance breeds a willingness to accept opportunities to subjugate liberty in favor of the expectation that protection will be extended against a foe (whether real or not). In their rush to be “protected,” humans become willing to accept so many inaccurate representations, false facts, and straight propaganda as gospel… so that they might be saved from the dangers that such propaganda is demonizing. 

The only accurate and poignant weapon against such an attack is truth and knowledge. Truth is a limited weapon if the receiving party does not have accurate knowledge and wisdom to understand what is being shared. Once a person becomes willing to accept a source as an accurate representation of the way things truly are, it is considerably more difficult to give them cause to shatter their delusion and see the world for what it truly is. The ‘Allegory Of The Cave’ is a theory put forward by Plato, concerning human perception. Plato claimed that knowledge gained through the senses is no more than opinion and that, in order to have real knowledge, we must gain it through philosophical reasoning.

This year, the truth is more under attack than it has been for the last two decades. It is happening in multiple places around the world, but none more harsh than in Ukraine. In our own country, we are working tirelessly to expose truth in the face of treasonous actions and with each and every factual revelation, we grow closer to demonstrating how close our own nation is coming to losing our footing as the cradle of Western Democracy.

Stay vigilant. Take the time to process the information that shows up in your respective sources. Cross check that against other sources, regardless of how confident you might be in the source you are always listening to. The Freedom of Speech is a critical construct of our core freedom, and with it comes every likelihood that others will use it to pervert the truth into whatever evil construct serves their purposes.

Happy Monday!

When I was 5 years old, I discovered that the lemon tree in the backyard + dixie cups + water and sugar and I was in business. I have been hooked on that ever since. In 1979, I borrowed $14,000 to create a brand new product... photographic greeting cards with no text on the inside, called Paradise Photography. That was the start of The Illusion Factory. Since then, The Illusion Factory has been entrusted by all of the major studios and broadcasters with the advertising and marketing of over $7 billion in filmed, live, broadcast, gaming, AR, VR and regulated gaming forms of entertainment, generating more than $100 Billion in revenue and 265 awards for creativity and technology for our clients. When I took a break from film school at UCLA to move to Hawaii, my mother did not lecture me. Instead, she took 150 of her favorite aphorisms and in her beautiful calligraphy, wrote them artistically throughout a blank journal. That is the origin of the Lessons from the Mountain series. Since then, on my journeys to the top of a mountain to watch the sunrise, I have spent countless hours contemplating words of wisdom from the sages of all races, genders and political persuasions, constantly accumulating the thoughts to guide me on my life path. I hope you enjoy my books. Please let me know your thoughts, as I highly value your feedback!
