A Concert for Public Integrity
ARMEN DONELIAN: To me, truth is an overriding and urgent issue of our time, perhaps of all time. We are swimming in lies. The root of lying is fear of the truth. But the truth is our ally in assessing the reality of things as they are, and charting a course for skillful future action that brings harmony and reduces suffering.
Like a ships captain, we need to know where we are before we can map our course. Young people relate to this instantly. Disdain for the truth has put our country and the whole world in peril. Truth is often feared because facing it leads to change, which we often resist.
With any issue of significance climate change, immigration, foreign policy, education, diversity, mental health, the mistreatment of children the search for truth is the underlying factor.
