Wake up and smell the reality around you. Remove the desire to be deceived. The news, whether you call it fake and despite which outlet you prefer, is slanted. It has some bit of truth, and a ton of opinion couched as fact, all designed to elicit emotion by using extremes.
Mark Twain said, “You can kill the truth easily, but a well told lie will live forever.” This, in reality, all points to perspective and perception; and we have all heard, “Perception is reality.”
Really, we all do perceive the world through our own eyes. In reality, we all see things a little differently. No matter your perception, reality could care less. Reality does not change. It does not adapt to our viewpoints. It is what it is. It is non-negotiable. That’s a fact.
Reality is the truth. The acceptance of reality, in other words, is dealing with the truth, and that is a moral obligation, not an option. Unfortunately, the truth often becomes a piñata for those who refuse to accept it
