You know, truth is merciless, and the deflation and criticism of both mercies and taboos painful for all. There are very few of us who can tolerate investigating the truth. There are very few who will tolerate observing it.

I would prefer no one who knows me personally in real life read what I do, because they will eventually be horrified by something that violates their most sacred mythos.

This is one of the prices we pay for the truth – regardless of consequences.
