It struck me today why no politician can ever tell the truth to voters. Why they never answer the direct question interviewers ask them. It's shockingly naïve of me to not have worked it out sooner.

The entire press industry seems to be founded and carried out upon a contaminated money making, ego drilling field where journalists who do see better get ensnared in the pressure to oblige their editors and proprietors.

Research suggests that as long as interesting, but probably factually inaccurate subheadings are used, writers can get away with putting irrelevant or even dangerous content on the internet.

The 12 people that died this week were not just heroes, they were martyrs. They gave up their lives in the name of freedom of speech. It is for this reason that 7 January must be remembered as a day of enlightenment once the pain and grief ebb away.

Events will occur, often in a sequence. With Jupiter so active, don't be surprised if you inhale oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide. In late March, the clocks will go forward. In the summer you will find yourself wearing fewer clothes.

It's the darkest week of the year, nearly Christmas. Stories of Santa Claus and elves abound... but my kids know they're not real. I've never lied about this.

Picasso famously said, "I find. I do not look". He also said: "Look and you will never find." Many have remarked that these two messages from the mouth of a genius are obtuse and incomprehensible.

Why the Truth Is Not So Simple

Truth is a concept as old as reality and both are a backbone of philosophical discussion. As with the conceptions of reality that have occupied thinkers for over two millennia, truth and its contention has a rich and diverse history..

Have you ever worked in a business that looked professional and successful on the outside, but turned out to be dysfunctional on the inside? Maybe there was a destructive culture of office politics and complaining. Maybe the company simply didn't care about its people, or it was a chaotic, high-stress workplace, with low morale and high burn out.

Living a Life True to Ourselves

When long-time nurse Bronnie Ware questioned dying patients about any regrets they had or anything they would do differently, the number one response was, "I wish I'd had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me."

No Make Up Selfies - The Naked (Not Aiming for Pretty) Truth

Saskia Lee Stewart

Truly, it had not occurred to me that the bare-faced selfies were in any way attempting to compare 'a face with no makeup' to the savage physicality of cancer. The two are clearly on different continents. Cancer is a bit of a spectre in my family. I do not put forward my point of view lightly.

A lie, however, will always linger. It travels with you and the person you lied to. A lie comes back to stare you in the face at unexpected moments, creating another lie and another lie...

There Is No Such Thing as a Coincidence

I am a great believer that these are no coincidences but synchronicities. Two events that come together for a purpose. They may be to give us a message or they may be that a situation happens that moves your life in a new direction.

In Whom We Trust

Dr Steve McCabe

Currently I believe that what is urgently required is greater truth and integrity from those in whom we put our trust. The trouble is, the embedded culture of secrecy and obfuscation makes this objective extremely difficult to achieve. Moreover, simply increasing performance measures and targets will definitely not help.

Why Don't More People Engage in Whistleblowing?

Dr Steve McCabe | Posted 16.09.2013 | UK
Dr Steve McCabe

We need to have a society where more credit is given to those who, because of their inside knowledge of organisational wrong-doing, chose to expose the truth. Unless this happens, the sort of scandals in the seen in the NHS, finance and banking and politics in terms of false expenses, to name but a few, will continue with monotonous regularity.

Tell it Anyway

Tell it and open the door for anyone who needs to go. Tell it and keep telling it - even if the only ones left to hear it are you and your truth, alone, together. Speak it until you feel like the person you were always meant to be. Own it until you don't fear the consequences of it anymore.
