Two quotes from a British Writer, RICHARD WHATELY, 1787-1863.
"As one may bring himself to believe almost anything he is inclined to believe it makes all the difference whether we begin or end with the inquiry, “what is truth?”
WHAT IS TRUTH?
Based upon the ideals of the parents
A child is reared to know
What the parents believe will be
Because what they say is so
In the modern indoctrination we see
In our schools and beyond
When the ideals will drastically differ
How will the youth respond?
Adhering to mandates of the state
Of a government out of control
It's no wonder that our citizens
Are confused as how to roll
Do they roll on in the shadow of parents
Whose ideology is stamped in stone?
Or do they revert to what the schools teach?
Will they be rolled over by a government
Blindly falling into step?
Will anyone embrace their own free will
And escape the cage in which they are kept?
What is truth but the logical answers
Known only when there are questions asked
And the logical people willing to stand bold
And take the oppressors all to task
"It is neglect of timely repair that makes rebuilding necessary."
LIVING IN A CRUMBLING SOCIETY
Naive and insensitive, lazy and feeling scorned
Allowing the world to crumble in the midst of humanity torn
Seeing what happens over there, believing there it will stay
Hoarding our opinions, afraid of what we'll say
Insensitive or ultra-sensitive to feelings
Or too in touch, demanding healing
Of the self-inflicted damnation of some
Certain that they are the persecuted ones
Women, race, ethnic background, social status
The tools of division in the government apparatus
Faith is questioned and demonized
Religion coming more in strange disguises
In the name of humanity where have we gone wrong
That they have banned the singing of patriotic songs?
And God is locked outside the gate
Of the country now existing in a decaying stalemate?
In a CRUMBLING SOCIETY we are resigned to dwell
Now is it a fact this is a living hell?
Political correctness has gone too far
And we are suspended in the state we are
