Life lessons in power


Whilst being a Socratic Gadfly, I couldn't help but notice that despite clearly being philosophical, there are people who only care about power and getting everybody in line with what they want. These people don't care what is actually true or not (not good for a democracy) and they don't care if they're right or now because they just want to project power (not good for an open society). Anybody else notice this? That society lied...

Which time?

Seriously. It's kinda hard to even get upset about it. People lie. It's what they do. Humans learned to talk for the specific reason that we couldn't figure out how to lie any other way.
