Oscar Wilde Vs Gary David Currie..!
Said to me;
Manjit Singh….. If you want to tell people the truth, make them laugh, otherwise they will kill you. -Oscar Wilde
Gary David Currie…. I don’t want to tell people the truth I just tell the truth whether they laugh or kill me is up to them..
-Gary David Currie
George Carlin and other comedians were and are masters at telling people things that are true that they probably don’t want to hear and building it with comedy. The old hit them where they don’t know it trick, the Socratic Method and getting their attention before you give them attention. Well that it just not who I am.
Personally I just put out my observations on life, how I see the world and those that want to listen will listen. Really there is nothing more I can do. If someone is not willing to hear what you have to say you can sugar coat it all you want to, disguise it a million different ways but it will not make a difference.
We grab onto the thoughts or ideas of those that are where we are at in life and it appears where I am at very few others are as well. So do I want to tell people the truth? I really don’t see it any other way as I say there is only truth even if it is a lie it is still another truth. Now how they take it will be up to them.
So do I view myself as a one gunman walking the wastelands, a different path? Maybe or maybe not it is just my path, it is what I have chosen and yes I have lost many along the way. Is my path better or the right path? That will be up to others to decide but I cannot change my nature, which I am so why bother even pretending I can try. I just recognize that I am me and that I believe I have something of value to offer this world with the hope that others will see it as I have seen the value in others.
I hope they don’t kill me but if someone really wants to kill me there is probably very little I can do about it so why worry about it.
The point is this; you can’t offer anyone anything if they are not willing to listen. This is a foolish task. I have chosen to offer my thoughts knowing full well that few will listen right now but because I value the process of life of the universe I know this will change as reality always wins. There is no denying the process it will happen. What I try and do is recognize this process the best I can and work with it.
