Truth and Trust

Truth and Trust

Alice in Q-Land

A lie told once remains a lie, but a lie told a thousand times becomes the truth.

Joseph Goebbels

You can at least understand what the Proud Boys and Klansmen think — they only like white people who love guns and violence and chewing tobacco, who also hate other non-white people.

But Q is an irrational conspiracy weirdness. These people need to turn off all of their digital devices, stay away from the internet, get off their ass, and go for a long walk through the woods…. for a week! Followed by a cold bucket of water poured on their heads.

Repeat this process as many times as required to wake up and get out of the conspiracy rabbit hole.

In an untruthful, deep-fake world, you have to trust your own
values, and
common sense.
