Lame Political Clichés: “Speaking Truth to Power”

Speaking Truth to Power

This is what happens when you “speak truth to power.” Hey, at least their voices were heard!

This is another awful and completely ridiculous slogan for the politically inept and disempowered: “Speaking truth to power!”

This one is in the same vein as the “voices heard” type of obsequious appeal to the master class. Please don’t say this and correct those who do by gently informing them that, of course, all the evidence points to the simple fact that those in power know EXACTLY what they are doing and they don’t need you to tell them. Simply telling your oppressor and exploiter what bad things they are doing to you is less than worthless when they are fully aware of what they are doing (because they’re doing it) and they’re not going to stop because you point out the obvious. Have some respect for yourself!
