“The only people who don’t want to disclose the truth are those with something to hide” – Obama (2010)
Irony usually signals a difference between the appearance of things and reality. Lenin talked one way to attain power; but, once in power, used every tactic available – including violence—to maintain power.
The power to deceive has bought down entire nations. Attempts to expose deceivers and the opposition ‘hones in like merciless vultures’ with tactics like – distortion of the facts, character assassination, accusations of “racism,” “sexism,” “homophobia,” “insensitive,” “uncaring,” “fairness and inequality,” (increasing minimum wage), anything to silence and disparage the source. Regardless of the facts, deceivers appeal to emotions and capitalize on an “unwitting,” apathetic, uninformed public.
