Cultural Manifesto for the Millennium Generation
“There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.” –Nelson Mandela
To “know” that what you believe is absolutely 100 percent now-and-forever utterly and completely True is the sickest, most vile, and most foul perversion of everything worthwhile in humanity, of all that is right in the world. Truth can never be found in mere belief. Belief is restricted. Truth is boundless.
Truth doesn’t screw around, and truth doesn’t care about your opinions. It doesn’t care if you believe in it, deny it, or ignore it. It couldn’t care less what religion you are, what country you’re from, what color your skin is, what or who you’ve got between your legs, or how much you’ve got invested in Mutual Funds. None of the trivial junk that concerns most people most of the time matters one teensy-weensy bit to the truth.
Oh, and one other thing: The truth is not open to negotiation–not by you, not by me, and not by the Leader of the Free World or the Moral Majority. The truth simply is.
