Who’s Truth What Truth?
This week’s Torah reading Korach presents us with some pertinent thoughts on today’s habitual rejection of truth. Our Rabbis taught “Korach was prudent. What then was his folly?” The answer is that “his eye deceived him” (Rashi Numbers 16:7). The Midrash gives another answer. “You do not find Korach answering any of the arguments Moshe presented to him. This is because he was clever in his wickedness. He said, ‘I know Moshe is a wise man, and if I will lose and be forced to agree with him. Better that I not talk to him.’ When Moshe saw there was no point, he separated himself from him” (Tanchuma, Korach 6).
Today like Korach of yesterday the Woke brigade fear being proven wrong in all their upsidedown ideology. They repress the truth so that it won’t challenge their narsacistic, hedonistic lifestyle.
In (Sotah 49b) it says “truth will be absent” in the days before the Messiah’s coming. They did not mean the truth itself will be absent. G-d forbid! The truth will be accessible if you seriously want it. The Rabbis meant that we will create a world without truth – by ignoring it, concealing it, ridiculing it, and stopping the people from hearing it. Sound familiar, it should from our Universities, Corporate business, Media and online services to our politicians truth is under attack along with those who are determined to stand up for common sense and decency.
Societys leaders in the main exercise all measures to silence the truth. Disqualification, mockery, defamation, harassment, and even incarceration should they deem it necessary to silence the voices for truth. The woke gang don’t want you being confused by the facts. They want you maliable and docile.
The Circus they willingly give you but never should the truth enter your mind and erradicate falsehood.
As in Korachs day so the woke virus will eventually be sent packing but not till it has shaken the very foundations of civilisation.
