"Don't let the deluge of lies and propaganda cause you to lose sight of the fact that they are trying to pour concrete over a bottomless abyss of truth."

I like this image: "Bottomless abyss of truth." I'm hopeful the deluge of lies and propaganda is going to end some day soon. Power to the people!

Thank you! And so great that it was able to be listened to/audio.. Somewhat new to Twitter, and hearing this a treat. Will consider subscribing later.. just so many subscribes for now.

Go thy great way!

The Stars thou meetst

Are even as Thyself -

For what are Stars but Asterisks

To point a human Life.
