Let’s paint the night with sacred light

Between the earth and sky

In the silence

Before the dawn

Bids sweet dreams goodbye

‘Regarding the nature of modern journalism, is it not a fact that the mainstream media manufacture false and misleading narratives, on purpose, to represent the rich and powerful interests they serve, which in turn leads to confusion, injustice and misery for those seeking the truth.’

‘But surely you agree that truth can be created by the repetition of a lie.’

‘While I agree Karl that propaganda is a menacingly effective tool of deception, my question to you is a simple one.  Why would you and your friends choose to lie?’

‘So you’re suggesting I’ve made a poor choice by not looking beyond my own selfish goals and the broader implications of my actions.’

‘Yes.  Divest yourself from illusions, and rediscover your conscious self into a new enlightenment.  This historic task is not a luxury, but a necessity.

‘Well, when you put it that way, I guess I should give it some more thought.’

‘Please do.’

‘Professor Plato, may I ask a question about human nature?’

‘By all means.’

‘How do you know when you’ve lost your humanity?’

‘Simply put, when you lose the capacity to be humane.’

‘Compelling words for all to ponder professor, especially now as the dogs of war are allowed to wander the world fully untethered.  By the way, and no offence, but it’s been over fifteen hundred years.  Truth be told, your beard could use a bit of a trim.’

‘A judicious observation.  But enough of this Karl, let us grab an espresso, my treat.’

‘Lead the way.’
