The Unfortunate State of This World

The Unfortunate State of This World
The Unfortunate State of This World

Belief is a powerful thing,
despite truth, despite what it brings,
belief blinkers our view,
and in context gathers opinion
until we assimilate and strengthen our belief,
it approximates truth and is held as such.

One cannot argue with such belief,
for it is dogmatic, and prohibits expansion,
certainly not changed by reason,
and our assessments fall on deaf ears,
as a foundation has been set
and from that perspective there is nothing to vet.

Bias then reigns in minds convinced,
and those believers spout reasons and defense
for every question posed, every alternative,
but the blind will not see,
and from one perspective the same reality thrives,
derives nothing more than the lies it abides.

Truth is malleable, in continued flux,
for it is our ability to see it that evolves,
and as perspective broadens
and belief losses footing,
a far greater reality open up into view,
and we then realize our own limitations.

We may invest faith,
hope truth is what we feel, but in the end
if not all sides are known, we are left wanting,
deception so easily manipulated
in our hope for betterment,
but being objective and informed is no easy task.

Today those who control this world,
have a highly technological media
in which to impart lies or truth, with proof,
all orchestrated for some political advantage,
none of which we are personally privy to
or will be in most cases.

We are simply the masses,
wanted under control by any means,
by leaders who assert personal agendas
in all they do, and from those who control them,
in a multi-layered conspiracy of manipulation.

This is the unfortunate state of this world.

    Very well stated, Tony. Belief is powerful, yet not always truth. I posted a comment to your other post, Absurdity Unleashed, then deleted it, for I want to rethink and look at all sides before I reply. You may have read my comment if it showed up in your email before I deleted it. It is so hard to really see truths from all sides, but, I try.This epistle opens my mind a bit more, gives me thoughts to ponder and explore. Thank you for writing this excellent work.

    Glad you enjoyed and related to this Phyllis. The problem with politics these days is its so easy to hide truths and manipulate the likes of you and I; I guess it all gets down to who our leaders are, in essence, no just what they do. In our time there are so many forces in leadership, its hard to know where all the decisions come from or who is really pulling the strings. Take care.

    I think the disagreement comes in the gray area of truth and lie. I strongly believe there is truth and not truth. People say our truth, while i can wholly agree that it has to evolve in a certain sense i cant deny that what’s true is true and what’s false is false. In my opinion all politicans havent the faintest idea of what is truth and what is BS.
    Excellent piece Tony very thought provoking.
