Lie is a religion of slaves and slave-owners

Truth is the God of a free man

A.M. Gorky

Introduction. On lecturing.

I will talk about Lie here. One of the most startling examples of it is the myth propagated by the MSM that American people are all very independent-minded and hate being lectured. Nothing can be further from the truth. The US people are maybe the most gullible, the most lectured and the most preferring to be lectured in the world. That is because those lectures are diluted in flattery. Our people are lectured 24 hours a day, 7 days a week but every lecture starts with the shot of flattery poison to "relax' the muscles of common sense so that we can FEEL GOOD. Make us feel good- and we will beg to be lectured by Oprah, Beck or Jay Leno. Make us feel GOOD and we are there for Dr. Dobson. Make us feel GOOD and even Bush could lecture us forever. Just tell us that we are smart, savvy, powerful, independent- and we will surrender our souls so quickly that there will be not enough little demons to carry those to Hell. So from now on I don't care. I am going to lecture here and I am not going to flatter even a bit. Be prepared, my pretties to see the smirk of a Lie because it is a smirk of the beast and the number is Infinity. Eat your checkers. It can be your only chance.

Lie stinks. That's how you recognize it by its stench. Like when Glenn Beck appears- the stench comes before him. TV or no TV- the stench fills the room and it stays there even if you turn the TV off. Same with the newspapers. I remember how I read Tom Friedman's article (no matter which one) in Starbucks and I puked out all my good coffee. The page reeked. Tom is an exceptional liar- he lies with gusto. We can compare his lies to the US strawberries- they look like ripe and fresh but they have no taste. Whenever Tom writes anything- you can see his goal- to just use it. He is an ultimate user and he uses the whole world for his meager needs- like to eat good food, to drink good drinks, to be well-known. War, death, climate tragedies, hunger- all of that is consumed by Tom, he processes it and produces a lie. I wrote extensively about him and his lies, like when he made all kinds of unfortunate explanations on why Obama was liked by the people of Egypt, etc. But I didn't mention the smell. That particular article of his smelled like a dead skunk. Only worse. In all fairness, the articles by Charles Krauthammer smell even worse, so Tom has a future, sure. He can break the record eventually.

Smell of lie, so musty you could vomit. That's a line from Boris Slutsky. But in many cases there should be something visual. How does a lie look like so that you could recognize it in advance? It smirks.

Ever seen the documentaries about the Nazi Germany? One of the features of Nazism was a smirk. No, of course, they were deadly serious about the pillars of ideology, satire was prohibited and even simple laugh was a no-no. But smirking was Ok. The bonzes, the elite would talk to the people in "their language', smirking sideways about "Northern cunningness', for instance. That is when Germany would violate another treaty or do something outrageous again, it would immediately announce to the world that "This is for the last time; we want everlasting peace' while inside the country people would be told that "the national government has to follow all those tricks using the Northern cunningness to maintain our interests.' Meaning, we all are a bunch of liars, just wait whom we deceive next. Meaning we HAVE A RIGHT to deceive anyone we want because we are a MASTER RACE and we do not follow the rules of common behavior. WE DO THAT BECAUSE WE CAN. That's what Hitler said then. That's what Tom Friedman says now. And they both smirk the same.

Smirk comes from contempt. Liars know that they can lie without impunity. They know or at least they assume in many cases correctly that the people they lie to are eager to take that lie and eat it. They presume that they know the public taste.

In the Y2001 and further on George Bush lied his ears off. He started lying with his morning prayer and ended with his prayer before going to sleep so that he could lie again the next morning. He lied about him being a President. He lied about his "mission'. He lied about Al-Qaeda. He lied about Iraq. He lied about his duties. He lied about him being anything but a miserable former drunk. And the more he lied the higher was his popularity index. I implore my readers to line up his public appearances in the Y2001. You will see the transition on his face from the stress of fear to the smirk of contempt. Somewhere on the way he realized that we all were the herd of stupid sheep happy to listen to the wolf. And all bets were off; he introduced a tsunami of lies we live with until today, in the Y2010. He developed and nurtured an ENVIRONMENT OF LIE.

The basic premise of this environment is lying to thyself. We, the sheep delude ourselves that we kind of need those wolves, that we hire them to do the dirty job we ourselves don't want to do. We convince ourselves that in order to protect us, to keep us safe we need a special breed of bastards who would be able to kill, maim, lie and steal very well. We justify our decisions to hire them by our perception of our own GOODNESS. We consider ourselves as the people which are BETTER than everyone else. Hello, the MASTER RACE. Wolves then can lie back to us; we accept those lies as a part of the package.

In fact one German writer wrote about the Nazi times that those were the times when "Everything was a lie. Everyday life became a lie; work, rest, science, laws, faith. It was a time when people would go to sleep with a lie and wake up with a lie.' We here are entering that stage- WE ARE GOOD, THEREFORE WE ARE ALWAYS RIGHT. WE ARE RIGHT, THEREFORE WE ACCEPT ANY LIE AS SOON AS IT IS OURS.

Just think about it. If Colin Powell was a French Minister of Defense and would present his "arguments' in the UN to justify the French mass invasion of Iraq, would we here in the US cheer him? Hardly. We surely would be skeptical. We would be even more skeptical if the Russian person justify their own actions (actually, when there was a Georgia war and Russians did what they had to do to pacify the rabid dog we here didn't even listen to their absolutely truthful arguments). But it was our black general who spilled out nonsense and we accepted the lie eagerly and willingly.

WE SACRIFICED OUR OWN CHILDREN TO OUR VANITY! That's the word- VANITY. How easy it was to get us. Like in one Russian animated movie two villains the fox and the cat sing a song "You do not need a knife to rob an arrogant bastard. Just flatter him a little bit and he will give you all for free,' WE ARE ARROGANT BASTARDS. The Master Race always is.

Just imagine that you are not better than anyone else. Then it all becomes so clear. Why would our country attack Iraq? We do not know those people. They are very far away. Iraq cannot threaten us; we have nuclear weapons. Oil? We better look how our oil here is handled ( In a horrible irony we now have a BP disaster and no, we are not invading Britain, although we surely should). Why would we attack anyone far away for no reason but that smirking guy in the WH telling us nonsense. WE ARE NO BETTER THAN ANYONE. He belongs to the asylum.

That's how we should think. But we don't because Lie is a religion. Obviously, every religion starts with the premise of its absolute correctness- no religion ever started with the premise of acknowledging other religions as equally correct. Lie is a religion based on IGNORANCE AND ARROGANCE- it is thus the most aggressive and the least productive. In reality lie is counterproductive always- it never works. Funny that one of the most prolific liars- Joe Scarborough from MSNBC, uses the statement "it never works' when mentioning the class warfare- the most truthful explanation of many world affairs, WHICH NEARLY ALWAYS WORKS AS A PLAUSIBLE ONE. Joe nicely replaces the proper method by referring to communist extremes; he replaces the essence by the forma and as such commits perjury but he does not care- he serves as any dog does- for a treat. He serves in a Temple of Lie.
