Value, Virtue and Virility of
VERITAS!

The never-ending search for truth…
The actuality of truth…
The reality of truth…
The completeness of truth…
The content of truth…
The totality of truth…
The goodness of truth…
The sensibility and sanctity of truth…
The harshness of truth…
The tragedy and trauma of truth…
The calamity and toughness of truth
The contentiousness of truth
The heavy burden of truth…
The real facts of truth…
The necessity of truth…
The harmfulness of truth…
The judgement of truth…
The healing of truth…
The wholesomeness of truth…
The worthiness of truth
The convoluted and winding path of truth…
The value and validity of truth…
The solidity and unshakability of truth
The all too often profoundly questioned
believability of truth…
The veritableness and veracity of truth…
The facts v. fiction of truth…
The drama and trauma of truth…
Yes, also the dreadfulness
and tragedy of truth, and…
The crass- and crudeness of truth…
the possibly very punitive and
costly consequences of truth…
The inconvenience and discomfort of truth…
The cruelty and shock value of truth…
The truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth…
The invincibility of truth…

Yes, that kind of truth!

Not the partiality of truth…
Not the relativity of truth…
Not the fuzziness of incomplete truth…
Not what has been calculated and contrived
to confound and confuse…
Not what had been callously concocted
to deviate, distract, and distort…
Not what had been hideously invented
to hide and conceal…
Not what had merely been alleged…
Not what is designed to deceive and defraud…
Not what is blatantly fabricated and false…
Not what is being lied about…
Not what is being denied and denounced…
Not what is being used to abuse…
Not what is being used
to bully, to batter, to brutalize…
Not what is being used to inflict harm
and to cause casualties…
Not what is being used
to rub sault into raw and open wounds…
Not what is being used to assail,
to assault and to insult…
Not what is being used
to provoke, to mutilate, and to destroy…
Not what is used to
degrade mind, body and soul…
Not what is being used
to mangle, maul, and manipulate
by ignoble and immoral means…
Not what is being used to agitate,
to anger, to irritate, to annoy…
Not what is being used to incite and divide…
to conquer and control…
Not what is being used to instill
insecurity, frustration, and fear…
Not the repulsive actions
of licentious lies and compulsive lunacy,
malevolence, ignorance and arrogance…

Truth is paving and securing the path to justice,
not the ways of violation, violence, and vilification…
Truth encourages us to be honest, to be sincere,
and to act honorably…
Truth is calling and commanding
all of us not to be vile, vicious, and evil.
Truth is commanding us to serve,
to satisfy humanity’s needs in humane ways,
by passionately peaceful means…
Truth is telling us, compelling us
to do noble, long-lasting good deeds…
The preciousness of truth…

Yes, that kind of truth!
