Lying Is The New Truth

Saying or doing ANYTHING to manipulate you may have been invented by religion, but commercial interests have done a great job of copying the original scamsters. We can infer the bottom line here:

1) If there is anything to be gained by manipulating you, controlling you, getting you to believe things that aren’t true, there will always be a percentage of people who will try anything and everything to accomplish this goal.

2) Even the most ham-handed attempts at lies and manipulation will attract at least SOME believers. The better the liar, the more who believe – but you really don’t have to be good at it.

Of course, commercial advertisers can be fined for making false claims. Religions are kind of like James Bond; he has a license to kill, they have a license to lie.

And then there’s government, where lying is the new truth. But that’s a story for another day….

Happy New Year!
