The truth is not hate speech, the truth sets us all free
Why are lies are first and formost self destructive? Because there is no such a thing as one lie.
Because one lie creates the need for another and another lie until a web of lies stops all truth. Which is why there are no successful cultures on earth that promote lying.
Liars are never happy people. Pathological liars are miserable human beings who spread misery wherever they go.
I offer my opponents a bargain: if they will stop telling lies about us, I will stop telling the truth about them.
~Adlai Stevenson, 1952~
There is no such a thing as a happy liar.
The truth sets you free. Lies enslave those who lie. All liars eventually self destruct.
