Secret: n. hiding and/or keeping from the knowledge of others and frequently from the public
There are personal, family, group, and organization secrets which are sometimes important to keep to save a reputation or to save a competitive advantage. Other secrets are more damaging because they hurt or injure other humans and are even fraudulent in nature.
You may be publicly embarrassed if someone found out that you like to walk around naked in the house like me or that you had a dui conviction which I don’t have. You may want an adulterous relationship to be kept secret or the fact that your spouse has a mentally ill relative. You may want to keep your salary a secret so that there is not jealousy among coworkers.
Coca cola may want their drink recipe kept a secret so no one can copy it or an organization may want to keep a manufacturing secret kept confidential which gives them a competitive advantage.
Big money investors may want to keep their investments secret so that the price of the shares which they are buying or selling don’t fluctuate wildly during a transaction. Special interest lobbyists may want conversations with public officials kept secret so that the special interest laws which they are advocating for don’t become public knowledge right away for fear of political backlash.
Some secrets are relatively harmless but big drug companies sometimes keep secret the fact that their clinical studies have found a drug to be relatively ineffective for the disease it is designed to cure or that the drug has some serious bad side effects which could worsen the health of the taker. These are really fraudulent secrets or lies which can hurt other humans so they can’t be justified as being good secrets.
The military has secrets which are vital to national defense and government agents sometimes keep secret the fact that they are monitoring the activities of humans thought to be potential threats to social stability or safety.
The world is filled with secrets or humans trying to keep something secret but the most damaging are the secrets of the government and large organizations which have the power to further enslave humans in their daily lives and suppress frequently needed decent in society which tries to point out the important injustices going on in society.
Do I have some personal secrets which I would not want to become public knowledge? Yes, but only about one or two rather unimportant ones and if you read all of my writing then you will know all my secrets.
My blogging is also a minimum threat to the powerful monied interests because I don’t have the money to promote my ideas of what justice and truth is really important in this world and what kind of change is really vital to this world.
My ideas are a threat to the status quo society and even the status quo constitution whose change I advocate. I am a rebel with what I consider to be a just cause and that is communicating the truth as I see it about almost every topic under the sun.
Join me in my truth crusade by reading some of the approximately 700 blogs which I have written so far. I am sure that you will find some blogs which interest you or at least expose you to new or different points of view.
If you liked this evergreen truth blog then read more of them, approximately 700 so far, and one or more of my evergreen truth books, especially COMMON SENSE, rays of truth in a human world filled with myths and deceptions.
