“In a time of universal deceit – telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” George Orwell
Kelly L. Derricks, proud daughter of a deceased Vietnam Veteran and one of the most well known Agent Orange activists in the United States, has spent her life fighting on behalf of Veterans and their families who have been hurt, damaged, or abandoned by a country that once depended on their service.
The current Vice President of March Against Monsanto International and co-founder of Children of Vietnam Veterans Health Alliance, Kelly serves as a dedicated educator through MAM and her independently founded social media network, Truth Teller. She educates millions of people on everything from the plight, and needs, of Veterans and their children, to the ongoing deadly legacy of Monsanto, the largest manufacturer of Agent Orange during the Vietnam War. Her father, Harry C. Mackel Jr., passed away at age 37 due to his exposure to Agent Orange, when Kelly was just 7 years old.
The inter-generational effects of Agent Orange on thousands of Children of Vietnam Veterans, “COVVs”, like Kelly have been well documented, yet the United States government refuses to recognize nearly all of them as being caused by Agent Orange — a situation Kelly has worked tirelessly to change.
Over the years, Kelly’s work has focused on connecting the dots between Monsanto’s control of the food system and the widespread harm, death, and destruction the company (with the support of the United States government) has caused to millions of people worldwide, especially the children of Vietnam Veterans.
October 2015, after more than four years of serving as President, Kelly made the heart wrenching decision to retire from COVVHA. Kelly’s retirement was a result of her ongoing battle with more than 40 diseases, many of which are believed to have originated from her father’s Agent Orange exposure.
She continues to use her platform to speak out on behalf of the voiceless, educating at rallies and on both local and national TV, in her trademark fiery “tell it like it is” style.

The most interesting and influential thinker in the fifth century was Socrates, whose dedication to careful reasoning transformed the entire enterprise. Since he sought genuine knowledge rather than mere victory over an opponent, Socrates employed the same logical tricks developed by the Sophists to a new purpose, the pursuit of truth. Thus, his willingness to call everything into question and his determination to accept nothing less than an adequate account of the nature of things make him the first clear exponent of critical philosophy.

Rockefeller Medicine To this day mainstream allopathic doctors and practitioners are heavily indoctrinated into a system that protects ever increasing industry profits while fiercely defending orthodox therapies. The network of allopathic medical institutions and education strictly denies medical freedom and outlaws any treatments that cannot generate market share profits for their monopolized industry.

Truth is most often used to mean being in accord with fact or reality, or fidelity to an original or standard. Truth may also often be used in modern contexts to refer to an idea of “truth to self,” or authenticity.
The commonly understood opposite of truth is falsehood, which, correspondingly, can also take on a logical, factual, or ethical meaning. The concept of truth is discussed and debated in several contexts, including philosophy, art, and religion. Many human activities depend upon the concept, where its nature as a concept is assumed rather than being a subject of discussion; these include most (but not all) of the sciences, law, journalism, and everyday life. Some philosophers view the concept of truth as basic, and unable to be explained in any terms that are more easily understood than the concept of truth itself. Commonly, truth is viewed as the correspondence oflanguage or thought to an independent reality, in what is sometimes called the correspondence theory of truth.
Other philosophers take this common meaning to be secondary and derivative. According to Martin Heidegger, the original meaning and essence of “Truth” in Ancient Greece was unconcealment, or the revealing or bringing of what was previously hidden into the open, as indicated by the original Greek term for truth, “Aletheia.” On this view, the conception of truth as correctness is a later derivation from the concept’s original essence, a development Heidegger traces to the Latin term “Veritas.”
Pragmatists like C.S. Pierce take Truth to have some manner of essential relation to human practices for inquiring into and discovering Truth, with Pierce himself holding that Truth is what human inquiry would find out on a matter, if our practice of inquiry were taken as far as it could profitably go: “The opinion which is fated to be ultimately agreed to by all who investigate, is what we mean by the truth…”
Various theories and views of truth continue to be debated among scholars, philosophers, and theologians. Language and words are a means by which humans conveyinformation to one another and the method used to determine what is a “truth” is termed a criterion of truth. There are differing claims on such questions as what constitutes truth: what things are truthbearers capable of being true or false; how to define and identify truth; the roles that faith-based and empirically based knowledge play; and whether truth is subjective or objective, relative or absolute.
Friedrich Nietzsche famously suggested that an ancient, metaphysical belief in the divinity of Truth lies at the heart of and has served as the foundation for the entire subsequent Western intellectual tradition: “But you will have gathered what I am getting at, namely, that it is still a metaphysical faith on which our faith in science rests–that even we knowers of today, we godless anti-metaphysicians still take our fire too, from the flame lit by the thousand-year old faith, the Christian faith which was also Plato’s faith, that God is Truth; that Truth is ‘Divine’…”
