Reading and Writing: The First Casualty

In 1918, US Senator Hiram Johnson stated that “In war, the first casualty is truth.” It’s disputed whether Johnson was the first to state this. Some claims go back as far as feather20pen20clipart Aeschylus (Greek playwright; 525 BC – 456 BC). It matters not who first stated it.

We are always, in this world of ours, in a state of war. One has to wonder if we ever get the truth, whether from the governments or the (allegedly free) press.

 

Just a thought. What think you, Readers?
