truth and lunacy

“A truth’s initial commotion is directly proportional to how deeply the lie was believed. It wasn’t the world being round that agitated people, but that the world wasn’t flat. When a well-packaged web of lies has been sold gradually to the masses over generations, the truth will seem utterly preposterous and its speaker a raving lunatic.”

-Dresden James

    i guess we probably shouldn’t dismiss the rantings of lunatics as quickly as we usually do. this makes you wonder what lies you’re currently believing that will one day be laughed at by kids in high school history classes.

    ps. it looks like wordpress does not make you type funny words to make sure you’re not a robot. i’ll have to find another source.

Keep me away from the wisdom which does not cry, the philosophy which does not laugh and the greatness which does not bow before children.
