THE BIG LIE
“I have been told that someone is spreading ‘Fake News’ about my brother’s health. I normally don’t respond to these kinds of things because I know some people feel they have some kind of right to say anything they want regardless of whether or not they have any proof to back up their claim.
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.” For more on this quote look up: Joseph Goebbels: The Big Lie.
Unfortunately, the idea of calling something ‘Fake News’ is not new. It’s merely a new twist on an old trick and was resurrected early in 2017 from the 1930-40s to deny anything and everything in an attempt to promote an ideology or personal agenda.
I urge everyone to question the source of anything they read or hear. And not just by Googling’ something else. Spoiler Alert: Not everything you read on the internet is necessarily true. Do your own research. Become your own journalist and do the research before you ‘share’ false information. Question the person making the claim. Find facts. Question their motive, ethics, values, and so forth.
We can learn so much from each other by sharing information, good news, creative ideas, and more but we must be diligent in our pursuit of ’truth’.
So no Micky is not dead, gravely ill or whatever else someone thinks is clever to ‘post.’ See you on the road!!🎶
P.S. I’d really love to know where these lies originate and by who.
