... and clever words make it palatable

Might makes right.

History is written by the victors.

A big lie works better than a small one.

Dazzle them with b.s.

Lies, damn lies, and statistics,

Creative accounting,

The Truth Squad

Liar, liar, pants on fire.

And in every such human endeavor, a blizzard of clever words makes it all palatable. There will always be some people who swallow lies as the greatest of truth, because they want something comforting, not challenging. “Am I the one who is wrong?” is the question they don’t ask.
