Funny, right? How about a social media site called Truth Social? Inventive name, right?
A Geobbels used to say, “A lie told once remains a lie, but a lie told a thousand times becomes the truth.”
Of course, the Ubiquitous Comestible was about margarine. It just sounds elegant. In fact, it was horrible stuff and was nothing but chemicals.
Actually, my personal feelings are that there is no point in telling the world what your personal views are about anything. Certainly not what the Truth is. But, as Don Ameche said, “Things change.” As those who disagree with Putin have found, you could find yourself jumping out of a window. Or, at least being asked to do so nicely — with a gun at your head.
Which is exactly how I was led to take a plea in this Best of All Possible criminal justice systems that we have in New York State. It didn’t matter that I was the subject of what’s called a vindictive prosecution for writing about corruption and a criminal who was part of the Hamptons power structure known loosely as the Southampton Sports club, or SS. While the D.A., head of that group, was subsequently imprisoned and now spends his time making license plates in Otisville, it did nothing for my financial, emotional and familial health. Truth is a very dangerous concept.
Keep your eyes peeled for my books about reality and truth. But, social media? I don’t think so.
