Amicus Plato, sed magis amica Veritas

Our capabilities of knowing or finding the Truth are restricted, we have to rely on various information resources, being unable to investigate everything individually, but the reason, logic and common sense combined with deductive thinking can compensate for obvious limitations. Lies in pure sciences will never last long as they create contradictions. Those will sooner or later be acknowledged as such and corrected by people loving the Virtue and caring for the Truth.

But most people don't always think but use emotions, often becoming highly impenetrable for the Truth. And because of that Social Sciences, such as Economy for instance but also Philosophy are especially vulnerable to lies. These lies often result in cascades of lies and in a sort of chain reaction of self-propagating fallacies create pyramidal lies. And this is quite unfortunate as politics is mainly founded or backed by ideas stemming from economical and philosophical notions. Dangerous theories are always bearing some key lie or fallacy which will lead to another (Keynesianism, Marxism, Stalinism). Wrong assumptions serving nuclei of fake and destructive ideologies are surely not always caused by a mistake or scientific malpractice. Intentional misleading may also be of interest to particular environments, groups, organisations, secret antities, any forces that have the ambition to control the World. It is not difficult to lie, shape peoples' opinions by playing on their emotions with such powerfull instrument as TV or other media. Charls Marx's theories are classical example of the dissastrous impact which a false ideology may have on political order in the world. In the cradle of the most disgusting social and economical cancer of all times called communism, an inhuman system which has taken the heaviest toll of lives (Lenin, Stalin, Pol-Pot, Mao), we can find one 'innocent' lie among others, a simple lie, that people are equal...
