I have realized that some animals are more equal than others.I have also realized the reason why whistle blowing is not anybody's favourite cup of tea. Oh!! they knew about the pain that would be part of the consequence.
I didn't whistle blow, l only said the truth about what some people said. Then l reported it in an email, not at work, but at some fora.You guessed it, l got into trouble. Not big time trouble, but trouble.
I have since realized that the truth shall set you free is a necessary verse in the Bible. But what it doesn't add is that the truth can get you in a lot of trouble.
Now do you wonder why so many people had rather keep quiet than admit the truth? The powers that be would take all the time to hit and squash them to oblivion.
I have never hated the truth like l do now. Not that l embrace deception, just that l feel trapped by my beliefs and values. Suddenly l realize many people lie and get away with it. But not for the small person.
Sometimes its not what you are saying that's important, its who is saying it.
