“Truth: Naked and Unmasked!”
As told by T. Matthew Phillips, Attorney-at-Law
Truth Coming Out!
In 1896, a Frenchman, Jean-Léon Gérôme, (1824 – 1904), painted the world-famous masterpiece — “Truth Coming Out of Her Well, Armed with Her Whip to Chastise Mankind.”
At the turn of the 20th century, Jean-Léon Gérôme was the world’s most famous living artist.
The painting, dubbed the Mona Lisa of its time, tells the story of Truth — naked and unmasked — emerging from a well angry — with whip in hand!
“Truth & Falsity”
Truth and Falsity meet one summer day. Falsity says to Truth: “The day is very beautiful, let’s go for a walk!” Truth looks up to the skies — and sure enough — the day really is very beautiful!
Truth and Falsity take a walk. They arrive beside a well. Falsity says to Truth: “The water is very lovely, let’s have a bath!” Truth, still suspicious, tests the water — but sure enough — the water really is very lovely!
Truth and Falsity undress. The two ladies bathe in the well. Suddenly, Falsity jumps out of the water — puts on Truth’s clothing — and Falsity runs away! Truth emerges naked from the well! She is furious! And unmasked.
The World, seeing Truth naked and unmasked, turns away its gaze — with hatred and contempt.
To hide her shame, poor Truth returns to the well where she disappears — forever hiding herself from the World.
And today, Falsity travels the World dressed as Truth. But the World cares not, for it has no wish to meet naked and unmasked Truth.
The Metaphor of the Well
In the 1890s, Gérôme made several paintings that personify Truth as a nude woman in wells — thrown down a well, lying at the bottom of a well, or furiously exiting a well.
So, what’s up with “the well” metaphor? Why is Truth female? How come she’s always naked and unmasked?
So, what do these paintings mean? Did Gérôme intend a political message? The mysteries that underlie these strange-but-compelling paintings have for years been the subject of endless debate.
Gérôme likely inspired Winston Churchill to declare: “A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.”
Gérôme may have inspired MLK to preach: “One has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws.”
Gérôme may have inspired Gandhi to teach: “Civil disobedience becomes a sacred duty when the state becomes lawless and corrupt.”
Perhaps Gérôme inspired Albert Einstein, who reminds us: “Never do anything against conscience even if the state demands it.”
Which naked, unmasked truths lay hidden in plain sight just outside your front-door?
Stop Right There!
Better wake your asses UP! Do you even know how Gandhi died? Gandhi got shot three times in the chest — point blank — in front of his grandkids — at prayer service! And remember, MLK died from gunshot wounds too! Tell me more about their celebrated strategy of non-violence!
A strategy of non-violence works ONLY if your oppressor has a conscience! But guess what?–Bill Gates and Anthony Fauci have no conscience! None! And they run the show!
They want you to believe that facemasking is about health ‘n safety! Srsly? If it were about healthy and safety, they’d mandate organic foods, vitamins, sunshine, and exercise!–and they’d outlaw artificial sweeteners, fluoride, pesticides, and network TV!
Facemasking is all about compliance and control!
No! It’s not “just a mask.” It’s a mind-control device! It’s cold-blooded tyranny!
And no, they’ll never “flatten the curve” — because there’s no money in flattened curves! (Get it?)
The time to resist is now! Today, it’s facemasks — tomorrow vaccines!
One day soon, we may wake-up in a world drizzled in Lysol, Purell and Clorox — featuring chronic allergies and extreme hypersensitivities — caused by lifestyles so hygienic and germ-free — that we are left with no natural immune defenses.
Fight back now! Sue ’em all! Let their corporatized attorneys devour them whole. Passive resistance is for losers. Active resistance is the key! Boycott their goods. Defy their embargoes! Disrupt profits! “Vote” with your dollars!
The tipping point is at hand! If we continue on our current trajectory, in six months’ time they will forbid the unvaccinated from buying food at the grocery store!
Get UP! Stand UP! Go paint your face half-blue! Get your hair extensions in full effect! Loudly cry: “Freedom!”
Won’t you help to sing these songs of freedom?
