Going to shock you here subbers but your comment is naive. The idea that people would have more respect for governments, the vast majority of which are either perpetrating evil or completely indifferent to it, if they just told the truth is demonstrably false. Society has little interest in the uncomfortable trade-off required to maintain order and relative prosperity while people are even less equipped to deal with truth, a glance at the Alder Hey thread should tell you that.

Yes, on reflection maybe you're right Quaydy. Maybe it's not that people aren't smart enough to process the lies and corruption, perhaps it suits them not to.

"People can't deal with too much reality" is a very old saying.

When I point out that Britain surrendered to IRA and ‘loyalist’ terror in 1998, which is exactly what we did, I am shushed and asked angrily whether I am against peace. But 20 years after that capitulation, there is no real peace.
