"If everybody always lies to you, the consequence is not that you believe the lies, but rather that nobody believes anything any longer," remarked Hannah Arendt [in an interview published in 1978 in the New York Review of Books], addressing lies in politics and concluding that, "A people that no longer can believe anything cannot make [up sic] its mind. It is deprived not only of its capacity to act but also of its capacity to think and to judge. And with such people you can then do what you please."
