Withhold judgement

Our wise sages circulating “truths” ought to know the difference between “confirmed” and “alleged”.

Nothing has been “confirmed”. Multiple sources have “alleged”. There is a clear difference.

In times of crisis, objectivity flies out of the window. Bearing false witness becomes fair game. Defence of the self justifies any means possible.

And we wonder how legends and lies entered our tradition in the past.

‘Verify it!” we are commanded. Until then, withhold judgement.
