So true, dear Izzy Stone:
Every government is run by liars
and nothing they say should be believed.
Take but the U. S. in the last 50 years –
wopper after wopper without pause,
without shame, without being brought
to account – and not just words,
but nasty deeds as well and the blowback
from myriad acts of hubris and ignorance.
Truly we’ve become the new Grand Guignol.
