But that isn’t the only use of the lie. It can be used for good.
And I will be among the first to give license to those that use this tool for our collective benefit. The artist’s palette contains truth, but not only truth. When mixed with prevarication, a skillful artisan can produce a richer, deeper truth.
All good fiction writers understand that effective prose can be produced by asking themselves first: “what if instead of what really happened; this took place”. And by lying about the experiences in their lives…by stretching the truth over the pages of their venture…they can reveal a more poignant truth about the human condition. And take the reader with them to that truth by way of their exaggerations, to a place of understanding that could not be reached by simple reportage.
Dostoyevsky never bludgeoned a pawnbroker to death. But through his understanding of the power of guilt on the human mind, he could take us inside a criminal’s motivations.
Harper Lee never saw her father defend an innocent black man against the charges of raping a white woman in the South. But through her artful fabrications about the memories of her father, she took us all to a place of dignity and courage of the human spirit that we would not otherwise understand. And we are richer for having gone there with her.
These are examples of using the lie for our betterment. And although we recognize them as what they are…statements about things that did not actually occur…we suspend our belief to arrive at a point that the author is making.
I listened to Obama’s state of the union address this morning online. I couldn’t conscience finding a television to watch it in real time last night as so many probably did. I knew there would be so much use of the “lie” coming out of his mouth that it would be a daunting task indeed to keep them all separate and identified as such, which is the goal of speech-writers. Those that use the lie for the political gain of those that dictate the finished product. To rapid-fire half-truths and statistics to paint a pretty picture over a sick and dying reality.
The state of this union has never been worse in its history. We all understand that. From the economy to hegemonic wars, we have fallen past all previous watermarks in the downward plunge of evil empires. For to fall so far, it is necessary to fall from a greater height. The idea of this “union” was such a lofty one that it is only predictable that when it did fail, as it has…it has fallen in and unprecedented speed and distance from its place in the minds of its founders. The one of a constitutional republic governed only by written law. No more and no less. But that was long ago. A place which we will never see again in truth. We can only catch a glimpse of it through the shameless references to its ideals on the canvas of the poor artist’s attempt to paint pretty lies. By using half-truths we see this bullshit-artist try to conceal the hand that brought us down from aforementioned heights.
Jewish Wall Street bankers were naughty…but not criminals. Main Street Gentiles were naughty because they believed them, and they have paid the price. Slaughtering the “evil” millions of innocent people in Iran is not off the table for it is the israeli table after all, and the Iranians will not participate in khazarian usury. The military ventures in Iraq and Afghanistan were noble and successful. We will support rebellion anywhere that the Rothschilds wish to set up a new branch of their big-box debt franchise. We abhor all inhuman oppression of people except Palestinians…and on and on. One lie after another….half-truths and hatred abound. Purchased congressmen and their yiddish handlers leading ovation after ovation. Leaping to their feet to applaud ideals that have no basis in the real world these sycophants have created. Enough to make you launch your lunch.
But that’s as may be.
This is the point. As the lie of Atticus Finch took us to a real place in our minds…a place in which we are aware of the impact of our actions upon those observing us… so do the lies that are so simple to see in that speech, take us to another place. A place where it isn’t necessary to fabricate a world that could be. A place of no hidden agendas veiled by the tissue of lies used for the wrong purpose by the wrong people. For zionists are not artists. They do not lie for any other reason but to further their own agenda that benefits only themselves. It has become easy to see this now. It doesn’t take the talent which I have always possessed to spot a deception. A child can pick up on it in our world today. These fabrications are stretched so thin that even the OWS movement(which got no notice in that speech from hell), will begin to adjust their numbers of “99%” to 98. It is only a matter of a short while until it is obvious that the other two percent are the jewish…not among, but above us. Lying. Taking us all to a place in their personal hell.
