“All truth is manipulated, because the universe is chaotic. What we divine from it is the superimposition of some kind of order, whether it’s religion, superstition, story and art, literature, science — all of them are an attempt to keep the wolf from the door. And that wolf is the panic of chaos.”

Ken Burns, born this date in 1953.

Writing prompt: Write a scene in which your protagonist manipulates the truth and, in so doing, creates the exact chaos s/he was trying to avoid.
