CREDENCE - belief in or acceptance of something as true - 'not is true but as true'.. how we word things is very particular in what we wish to convey or to guide.
There a many things we put up on pedestals (plinth) but when such unabated trust is placed on something, this can allow for greed and manipulation for other benefits, as there is so much information and ways to get it, it has been created into sides instead of facts.
This is not new, but being able to freely research at our own figure tips is causing fear panic and name calling.
We were led to believe that the lone wolf is cool, but usually he is a scavenger as the average pack size is six and they work as a team, relying on each other in order to survive.
With so much around us, it can flood our own minds and we raise our hands in surrender for what we know or trust, but it is so hard to release what we have worked so hard for that it can be difficult to see other paths, or possibilities and so we subside to blindly follow the flock with hopes that someone amongst them know what they are doing.
