Like a game of telephone, the first person tells a story, then it goes around a circle of people. They add their own interpretation of the story and by the time it gets around the circle, it’s totally diluted. This is the “news” business now. The listener hears a story, then tells it to someone else and it’s diluted, but they hold on tight to their story because it’s now their “ideal”. Fear mixed with ideals, they hold tightly to, become their story. They don’t have time or bother to make sure their new ideal is true, so they hold tighter and fight for this ideal, then do everything in their weak power (vote or don’t vote, but bitch about it) to hold true to this ideal.
Tell the truth. Truth is Power.
