In times of universal deceit, telling
the truth is a revolutionary act.
         - George Orwell

Napoleon once observed that "history" is a set of lies agreed upon. In an era of ubiquitous fake news and information warfare, this has never been more true. The very concept of objective truth in history is fading out of our world. Pure propaganda and outright lies are passing into our history textbooks as unquestioned truth, condemning future generations to false views about historical reality. But the task of sifting through the lies and propaganda is overwhelming, limited by the ambition and time constraints of most observors. Only those who have dedicated their lives to sorting reality from falsehood are qualified to rewrite "consensus" history as a duty to humanity. The contributors to this site endeavor to do just that.

We Found Love in a Hopeless Place

      What is love?  We have striven from time immemorial to put into words the feeling we experience when we "love" someone.
       One philosopher curiously explained that love is not just wanting someone, and not just wanting someone to want you back, but wanting someone to want you to want them, and wanting them to want you to want them to want you, and onwards and onwards down an endless coiled DNA strand of interpersonal desire that melts into One. At some point in our lives, most of us have felt it, if only fleetingly.  It produces a natural high unlike any drug.  It is the source of the desire to be with the Other, and to "make love".  But equally certain is that we have all had it ripped from us in that hellishly depressing of all feelings, having our "heart broken."  Sometimes it is not the fault of the lovers.  Think of Romeo and Juliet. Sometimes outside forces move in to rip lovers apart.  I know - it happened to me just the other day...

I console myself with music. Lyrics and tone resonate with the heart and heal that aching feeling.  I just listened to Rihanna's 'We Found Love', and it provided solace. Here's how it goes:

Yellow diamonds in the light,
Now we're standing side by side
As your shadow crosses mine
What it takes to come alive
It's the way I'm feeling,
I just can't deny
But I've gotta let it go

We found love in a hopeless place...

Shine a light through an open door
Love and life I will divide
Turn away 'cause I need you more
Feel the heartbeat in my mind
It's the way I'm feeling,
I just can't deny
But I've gotta let it go

We found love in a hopeless place...

My greatest wish is for love to triumph over evil and hate, and for me to be once again reunited with the woman of my dreams. For this I must be patient, and the stars must align. May the gods read my heart and find me worthy.
