So Exciting – Most Revolutionary Truth I’ve Heard in a Long Time!

This video, “How to Spot a Liar,” by Pamela Meyer has been seen over 8 Million times – with 37 different subtitles added.

It’s revolutionary because it’s so simple:  Recognize truth, and challenge lies.

But first we have to realize that we’re all liars and have practiced lying since we were babies!  And so we needn’t condemn liars, but simply talk, and help each other find the truth.

Why is this revolutionary?  Because we’ve been taught to be silent in the face of lies all our lives.  Things like the Inquisition taught us that.  And now we live and breathe in a social environment of lies.

Pamela tells us that we need to stop collaborating with those lies and learn some new skills:  how to carefully talk about them.  (If she’s made a second video to help us with that, I don’t yet know, but I’ll let you know.)  Meantime, she suggests we speak carefully but truthfully about what we see.

Yes, new skills for a lot of people.

But that simple thing could help us save our world.
