Russia, Crimes against Truth and previews of current attractions

Jake:Words are what men live by words they say and mean.

The Comancheros 1961

The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.

George Orwell Animal Farm 1945

This disgusts me:

Russia’s Supreme Court rules that the USSR did not invade Poland in 1939.

This is not only a lie but it’s a brazen lie, told officially for the sake of a fiction.  It’s the worst type of lie now officially endorsed by Russia and it’s courts.  That it invokes the Nuremberg trials in an attempt to cover up a historical crime makes is particularly obscene as its entire purpose is contrary to Nuremberg’s goal, to keep the truth from being written out of history for a political agenda.

Just the thought of it, using the power of the state to punish an individual for speaking the truth aloud.

Well thank goodness you wouldn’t see something like this in the US.  After all if we embrace the culture of the lie we would see people being punished for calling men men and women women, persecuted for giving opinions on issues, pushed out of business or losing their ability to get a job for expressing eternal truths or even banned from public forums for calling out those who would do such things.

And it’s particularly a good thing that we don’t have leaders and potential leaders like that who lie brazenly to and through our authorities and media or deny widely known pubic policies.

I Thank God we’re better than all that, at least while it’s still allowed.
