Remember, if you believe it’s true it can’t be a lie!

This foolish idea is more prevalent than it seems. You can tell a story in a way that leaves out a few important details, minimizes cause and effect, casts hero and villain in a dramatic light that makes each one the perfection of their type. If others believe the story, that’s what actually happened, for those who believe.

Examples are virtually endless. In the age of Trump, an ocean of steroids has been poured over this human trait until now any lie you like can be spun into the highest truth. Believe it. And if you believe it, it is no lie.
