So is this what they mean by “post-truth” ?
Or simply “if you throw enough shit, some of it is gonna stick”.
Honestly, I don’t know whether to laugh or cry any more. Who-da-thunk it? Putin & Mutko are channelling Joseph Goebbels –
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”
And as of now, whether I look East, West or South, I see nutters bullying us into submission. Anyone see the stat from Oxfam: eight people have the same cumulative wealth as half of the world’s population?! Stop the world; I wanna get off.
