We Don’t Like The Truth

If I had to take dipstick research and ask: “Do you want the truth?”, I suspect I would get a resounding positive response. We all claim to want the truth.  It’s the existential foundation of the soul. We are always at odds with ourselves, others and the Universe, in general, when we do not live……
