But do you know why he runs into trouble? it is because eventually his
lies are exposed as such, and he loses all credibility. Come to think of it,
this is exactly what happened to socialism… socialists could only pretend
for so long that their system was a good one, and when this period of grace
expired, so did they. Of course this does not prevent them from becoming
ever more shrill and nasty, thinking they can make up in propaganda what
they lacked in real life. They are stuck in Orwell’s world of _1984_, and
fancy themselves still to be Big Brother. Edmund W.
Sooner or later the same happens to all liars. But, unfortunately, sometimes it takes so much time that whole societies go extinct. I.V.
