Lie is a religion; it is supported by a religious mentality and in the US that mentality prevails in its most primitive forms. That's why we denounce Cindy Sheehan even more than Saddam. He is dead, we killed him. She is alive and she does not rejoice. She considers that her son was killed by a Lie, for the Lie and by the Lie. We can't accept that. It destroys our religion, takes away our spirit, denounces our values. Sarah Palin, on the other hand makes us all feel GOOD about ourselves. And if we are deceived- she has an explanation- that is because we are TOO GOOD. Flatter him a little bit", right?

There exists a Mask of Lie. On that mask the beautiful forehead is covered by snakes. Classic mouth smirks, showing horrible sharp teeth. Narrowing eyes promise vanity and dubious kinkiness. Lie is a sphinx. It attracts and repulses at the same time. I would say it is an eternal temptation. We have been tested and found very light indeed.

There are many kinds of Lie similarly to many faces of the religious totem. There could be even a good Lie, a sacred Lie, a Lie based on love and respect; such Lie actually is Istina, the higher plane of internal truthfulness. But all-in-all there is a criteria for the difference- as soon as it flatters you- it is a bad Lie, poison, death. That simple.

Stop lying to yourself first. That's how you become immune to the Lie and the smirk is wiped off its face. Let's start. Repeat after me. We raped Iraq and Afghanistan and now we behave like compulsive rapists. Those people can do what they want- it is not for us to judge their habits. We raped them and we want to rape more. Other countries do not want to be raped and we seize in rage. Then we are raped by BP. Feel it when you suck the BPs c$^k. Now you know how Iraqis feel and Afghans feel and all those other victims of ours. It does not feel good, does it? We should confine ourselves to the asylum but we have not even that luxury. Have to live with it like many other nations and people lived before. No more lies. Boy, it feels good.

There, the Temple crumbles and you can see the light through the cracks.
