Transformation of the Truth from Knowledge to Power (6)

Recently, I wrote about the future 7 Belief systems and how the Truth will disappear from the Knowledge domain and reappear as (government mandated) data/info in the Power domain (part 3). Each day, this transformation process can be witnessed in the UK (Brexit) and USA (Russian interference in 2016 US elections).

Last Monday's joint news conference in Helsinki, by the presidents of Russia and USA, provided a perfect example: Republican president Trump "cast doubt on U.S. intelligence findings and said Putin strongly denied interfering in the U.S. election" (WP).

Shortly afterwards, Republican House speaker Paul Ryan "said that there is no question Russia interfered and continues to undermine democracy around the world, stressing that it was the finding of U.S. intelligence and a House committee" (WP).

The Guardian, 17 July 2018: "Donald Trump has been condemned as “treasonous” for siding with the Kremlin over his own government agencies after a stunning joint appearance with Vladimir Putin in which he seemingly accepted the Russian leader’s denial of election meddling." Note LO: bold marking in quote by me.

The messy Brexit process is hard to follow. Its essentials are this: "In a referendum on 23 June 2016, 51.9% of the participating UK electorate voted to leave the EU; the turnout was 72.2%. On 29 March 2017, the UK government invoked Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union. The European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 declares "exit day" to be 29 March 2019" (Wiki).

The UK government still continues with its Brexit process despite:
  • Brexit being a consultative rather then binding referendum;
  • Brexit having a marginal pro Leave outcome at a low voter turnout;
  • growing evidence of Russian interference in the Brexit referendum;
  • threats by UK business to move (production/services) facilities to the EU (my blog).

Clearly, the Leave and Remain sides have 2 opposite truths. Mainland Europe fails to understand the arguments of pro Leave. To a (cynical) extent, Brexit is the best that Project Europe could have hoped for. A notorious EU blackmailer will leave, and the other 27 EU countries will not dare - or dream about -joining the Brexit horror.

The Truth is a belief that only matters in the Knowledge domain. In the Power domain, the truth is just information that one must accept.

Hence, John 8:31-32: (31) "So He said to the Jews who had believed Him, "If you continue in My word, you are truly My disciples. (32) Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."
