Here in our benighted West:
Lies are truth. Truths are lies. Up is down. Right is wrong. Black is white. Right is left. North is south. Forwards is backwards. And so on and so forth.
Here in the US it’s getting to the point where you get crucified if you don’t tell “the lies, the whole lies, and nothing but the lies.” People who tell the truth are ordered to apologize and voice support for some lie because it’s been falsely “proven” by pathological liars.
Reading Kafka’s The Trial right now. This situation reminds me a lot of that book.
