purity

Carpe Diem #715, Purity


Ninety nine forty four / one hundred percent pure.  That is what was claimed by a soap manufacturer in 1972.  It is amazing how some fact or non - fact repeated often enough lodges in one's brain.  Over and over mantras, creeds, untruths told as truths, et cetra become the accepted hallmarks for society's beliefs and values.  Those hallmarks in turn can go from gentle suggestions to the law of the land, church or organization.  A litmus test of judgement
