The common thread in all autocracies and dictatorships is the lie. To get elected or rise in power the lie is the chief weapon used. Any society that allows free speech (in whatever degree) is subject to the influence of the power-seeking liars. This is not new but recent history since the early 1900’s has shown the rise of Adolph Hitler, Josef Stalin, the Taliban, Iranian extremists, ISI and others. Disenfranchised citizens are duped in following them due to lies, disinformation and misinformation. Enter the Ukraine crisis, the American political system to name a couple. Lies sound great if they feed into the fears of the disenfranchised but we must be cautious lest these spreaders of “made up ” information become elected officials or media influencers.
