Diversity and its threads is not a walk in a pastoral park. Diversity and its Literacy requires leaning into the discomfort of addressing insidious and painful social pathologies. Truth Serum provides lenses by which to identify specimens of socially engendered -isms, phobias and the social agencies that teach such constructs.

Truth Serum examines the ideology of oppression and its trauma.

Oppression is man-made, constructed, marketed and brought to fruition with cataclysmic results. The numbers of human beings suffering needless trauma, cultural ruptures, obliterated identities and the loss of innocent lives is overwhelming.

As painful as it may be at times, our humanity requires for each of us to affirm our dedication that oppression will not be left unexamined on behalf of every born child and those yet to be.  

Truth Serum makes available critical lenses exposing past and present oppression, countering falsehoods, providing antidotes by which to resist the contamination of -isms and phobias.

Pathological Lying as a Political Ideology ~ and for some ~ A Way of Life and Voting

Pathological Lying as a Political Ideology ~ and for some ~ A Way of Life and Voting

Would you ask your children to believe in lies? Or worse, would you teach your children to lie as a way of life? Or, to lie but don’t get caught lying.

How about as a citizen of a Democracy?

Why would you vote for a candidate and party that exists as pathological liars asking their constituencies to believe and promote falsehoods?

Have parents and teachers become the Fourth Estate teaching children not to lie but pursue the truth?

Does credibility, trust and the truth matter in any relationship?

How about between a candidate, political party and citizens?

“Projection” ~ Republican Trumpism’s Psychological Ploy and Disease ~

Psychological Projection is a defense mechanism when an individual attributes their own unacceptable thoughts, feelings, behavior or motives to another person.
In doing so, they defend themselves against their own unconscious impulses, characteristics, attitudes or qualities denying their existence in themselves and attributing them to others.

Remember those bullies during our early school days causing needless pain projecting their own damaged selves.

Unfortunately, some school bullies become adults – even graduate from elite boarding, independent and Ivy League schools.

Some even become president, senators and members of Congress.
The titles, spaces and times shift, but the psychosis continues.

Autocracy ~ Denying Reality and Truth vs. Democracy’s Inherent Human Force ~ HOPE

Autocracy ~ Denying Reality and Truth vs. Democracy’s Inherent Human Force ~ HOPE

With each birth, HOPE is inherent within the human spirit.

But hope must be nurtured and mentored in the real world and with the truth. We are the teachers – the mentors – the nurturers.

Hope – it gives life during the darkest of times.

No child is born hating and loathing other children in a hospital’s nursery room.

The vileness and extremism of hate and nihilism is taught.

So is the essence of love and hope.

Does Adolf Hitler remind you of anyone? Do you dare to scream the name out loud?

Does Adolf Hitler remind you of anyone? Do you dare to scream the name out loud?

It happens often!
We see and hear an individual that provides us with an image of someone else.
The comparison reveals itself in living color, high definition and surround sound of the 21st Century.
We just can’t help ourselves by making the comparison.
The juxtaposition is inevitable . . . not by way of our own reality . . . but history reminding and warning us.

Each vote from here on will determine whether we live in an autocratic schizophrenic fantasy world with notions of narcissism, supremacy, denialism, grievances and extremism or . . .

Live in a Democracy with a focus and advocacy to enhance the quality of life of current and future generations.
