Smoke screen

My most popular tweet has been –

“It is almost impossible to fully capture the evil humankind is capable of.

The good too.”

It was a response to a tweet by @jaymonet, who said,

“I know for a fact slavery was 1000% more violent than any historical records ever documented.”

You learn quickly in life that the documented sequence of events only has some remains of the truth, not the truth. Truth is the first casualty of history.

Take any part of history and you will find alternative views to every event. You choose the side to believe depending on your conditioning.

The present is full of smoke screens; those who write about it, either end up being fooled by it or they justify it.
