Never before in this country’s history, and for that matter, in the rest of the world, has there been a better time for truth telling. Telling it like it is, certainly, but nothing close to the gossip pages otherwise known as the tabloids. In the literary sense, to tell the truth then gives readers an opportunity to gain a better impression and understanding and appreciation of their surroundings. The writer for all is needed.
As he is essentially a cultural writer, he will be unravelling tied ropes and rusted chains on behalf of his readers. At times, he will be quite blunt, not necessarily giving his readers reading matter that they want but news that they have got to have. Who is going to enlighten the minds out there when the lid on corruption has to be lifted. To think that once upon a time it was also written that ignorance is bliss.
No, in this day and age, how could that possibly be. There can be nothing kosher about being blind to the things that are going on around you these days, and there are some pretty torrid events out there that should be ringing alarm bells for all. If you think that the daily news does not really affect your life at this time, think about it again. Because sooner or later such magnanimous events, travesties and tragedies will or could eventually catch up with you.
Allow the cultural writer to better inform you. Also, indulge in a little poetry every now and then. Not just straight, hard news every day, but a little word art to help lighten the load of your day but without you forgetting about your cultural surroundings. Read more to love your country and people more.
