It is distressing to read and listen to the outright lies by politicians, commentators and self-experts today.
These messages are accepted as truth by most people today.
We have ceased to take the time to research the origins of these many lies.
Let’s take climate change as an example.
Truth 1: Yes, there has been slow cosmic climate change. I believe that scientists have confirmed this over many decades.
Truth 2: Yes, there are instances of pollution to our immediate atmosphere by human activity.
But someone please tell me how rational human beings will believe these two truths, combine them together and come up with concocted truth 3: That cosmic climate change is caused by human activity.
Are we trying to just simplify things, or are we helping to create the age of stupid?
Heather Scoffield in the Dec. 15 edition of the Advocate explains well, the reach of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s climate plan. This plan is based totally on the concocted truth 3.
Is Trudeau deceiving us? Of course he is. Does he know it? I think he does.
From my own research and that of some investigative journalists I feel personally that Trudeau’s government, like all Liberal-left governments in the Western World, have been instructed to push the concocted truth 3 for all it is worth, with no exceptions.
This lying policy will win elections over and over for years to come.
This lie is unstoppable.
