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.
