Let there be truth

Now You See Me

You have a secret superpower: the ability to appear 

and disappear at will. When and where will you use

this new superpower? Tell us a story.

 

I like this prompt because it didn’t give me a choice.  I have the ability to appear and disappear at will rather than asking me if I want it.   It is still a conundrum over where, when and how I will use it.

I believe I have the super hero complex, so how I use anything that gives me an edge will be for the betterment of society.  Lofty sounding but nonetheless true.  I believe that truth should be available to everyone, with no strings attached or respect for the power or lack of it for anyone.

I would use the ability to disappear at will, like a reporter uses their skills to inform the public.  Rather than by pen I would use secret access and a recorder to share the very words hushed in secrecy and now shared publicly b y me.   There would be no editing, so bias would be in the eyes of the beholder not in the person sharing it.

Can you image the reaction to a recording of an ISIS meeting or, equally a meeting of the CIA, the government or any one or group that believes that the only right people have to information is that which is filtered through to them?  I am not sure if it would make any situation better or worse but it might end the crap news information we get now.

What would be the point of the media sharing their version of a story, if it can be directly proven as simply a point of view?  Proven by the release of the reality in the words of those that speak it.  Maybe the truth would no longer be the first or any casualty of war.

Author:

I was 46 years old when I begun this blog, female and married with a house full of cats (7). My past is littered with the impact of events that happened when I was a teen. Two loves of my life have been nursing and studying. I just completed my Master of Arts: Media Studies endorsement. My blog will be about the things I think about, that might be better served being written rather than squirreled away in my mind festering. It is the meanderings of my mind as I seek to define myself and my world.
