“The actions of men are the best interpreters of their thoughts.” – John Locke, philosopher (29 Aug 1632-1704)
Actions speak louder than words is an old adage. It got that way as most old adages do – by holding a lot of truth in it..
In today’s world we have two vivid examples.
The first that comes to my mind is the images of the Cajun Navy speeding into Texas to help their brothers and sisters. The Left wants to paint these folks as simpleminded and haters. Their words not mine. I’ve always found them to be good and decent folks with a lot of wonderful tradition and characters fortified into each one. It’s no surprise to me that here they go proving it again.
The second and less pleasant is Antifa. These folks claim to anti-fascists while their every action makes it very clear that’s exactly what they are. Never forget folks that fascism rose directly from communism. Never forget to study and know history. Lots of ‘experts’ want to claim that Fascism was from the right and to the degree that they meant it was a rejection of Moscow’s leadership and Stalin, maybe they were right. Otherwise, that’s a misnomer.
My advice is the advice of the ages. Do you want to know what a person truly thinks? Listen less to their words and watch more of their actions.
