Some truths are built on an empire of dirt; words hold no meaning and the consequences, though dire, seem almost irrelevant. A dinghy lulls in a sea of information--worlds collide, histories blurred, cultures and its people erased, war and its atrocities ameliorated through sheer will; is it ignorance? They walk, deluded and forgetful; angry and frightened of their own shadows, scapegoats and conspiracy theories arise to give legitimacy to delusions because the truth destroys the fragile ego that has become overbloated with arrogance. The ‘truth’ they seek only further pulls them under the current of distortion and manipulation. Lies. They are all lies.
