About theredbreast

All truth passes through three stages: First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

    The quote you use, by German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer, is an interesting choice. In what context are you discussing “truth.”

    Many thanks for your comment, Rob! This quotation, as you said by Schopenhauer – I find it both provocative and fascinating. I am mostly referring to truths that are not self-evident, those that sometimes escape the eye. I believe truth is often uncomfortable (therefore it is ridiculed, opposed), but still there is a deliverance in truth. Like in a confession: if you have been naughty, and get caught – in the end you are still relieved, even if you are found gulty. When the truth is exposed.
    See what I mean?

    You went and done it. You went and followed Uncle Bardie’s Stories & Such. You are now one of Uncle Bardie’s Band of Merry Followers. Just so you know, Uncle Bardie’s a hoot, and he’s got quite a few whoppers in his bag of stories. Some funny, some not so funny. But all told for your entertainment. Thank you for following his blog.

      Regarding Trump…I guess we’ll just have to wait and see. ;-).
      But I have to admit to enjoy how the media takes a beating. They have no respect for anything or anybody, why should they be respected?! Behind the words ‘transparency, truth’ they are allowed to report almost without boundaries.
