The Ruse Behind the Curtain

The Ruse Behind the Curtain

Only a few generations ago, Americans were anchored in concrete ethics, felt the need to instruct their posterity in biblical morality, and understood the value of the founding fathers’ labors. Lamentably, our cultures values and system of thought have drastically changed. Americans now abhor absolute ethical standards, public education now has postmodern relativism as the teaching standard, and citizens are forfeiting their role as the people in government.

It’s a microcosm of a much greater struggle – one that predates mankind. These elections are about truth vs. lies; light vs. darkness; good vs. evil.

Words Matter. Truth Counts.

Words Matter. Truth Counts.

Abraham Lincoln thought that words mattered and that truth counted for something. Responding to a disputant in an argument, he is reported to have asked his opponent, “ How many legs would a dog have, if you call a tail a leg?” Answering his own riddle, he stated that the answer was four, “…because calling a leg a tail doesn’t make it a leg.” Words matter. Truth counts. Or do they in the postmodern age in which we live?
