Codevilla: Live Not By Lies

A wonderful post by Angelo M. Codevilla follow link for the entire post:

Live Not by Lies

A portion of his article

Being human, politicians lie. Even in the best regimes. The distinguishing feature of totalitarian regimes however, is that they are built on words that the rulers know to be false, and on somehow constraining the people to speak and act as if the lies were true. Thus the people hold up the regime by partnering in its lies. Thus, when we use language that is “politically correct” – when we speak words acceptable to the regime even if unfaithful to reality – or when we don’t call out politicians who lie to our faces, we take part in degrading America.

Read the rest of the article it is not lengthy.
