The paradox? The more we shy away from truth in order to belong, the more we distrust each other, and the lonelier the planet becomes. This is not just America, it is everywhere. Until we realize, admit, and act on the fact that meaningful relationships cannot be built on deliberate relegation of what we have come to realize to be true to the dark corners of our minds, the planet will become lonelier. No matter how hard we try, meaningful relationships cannot be built on intellectual hypocrisy. The path to regaining our social consciousness is willingness to be alone in truth we find convincing. The man or woman who is comfortable being alone in truth never can feel lonely enough to merely seek to belong.
