Gorgeous words

Today: authenticity. It goes hand in hand with hypocrisy.

from Gk. authentikos "original, genuine, principal," from authentes "one acting on one's own authority," from autos "self" + hentes "doer, being."

From Gk. hypokrisis "acting on the stage, pretense," from hypokrinesthai "play a part, pretend," also "answer," from hypo- "under" + middle voice of krinein "to sift, decide" (see crisis). The sense evolution is from "separate gradually" to "answer" to "answer a fellow actor on stage" to "play a part." Thus hypocrite (c.1225) is ult. Gk. hypokrites "actor on the stage, pretender."

That would be "Be yourself". "Drop down that bloody mask". It's hard, I know. You bloody hypocrites. You, my friends. You, my brothers and clients and torturers and victims.
