Alternate attendances

I have seen a few real news pieces to-day concerning the chief mouthpiece for the Donald, She-Goebbels Conway, a hatchet faced crone that will always attempt to manipulate reality to make the Donald look good. Well, Trumpy's Whiter House press secretary, Propaganda Spice lied about attendance at the inauguration. The lies were so egregious, so obvious, and so vehement that Chuck Todd [NBC] challenged Kellyanne Conway's defense of Sean Spicer. Conway said he offered 'alternative facts'. There is no such thing. There is only alternative realities in fiction. It is already fully evident that this presidency is thoroughly founded on lies. As Solzhenitsyn taught us in his Nobel speech, lies are violent: "Let us not forget that violence does not and cannot flourish by itself; it is inevitably intertwined with LYING. ...Whoever has once announced violence as his METHOD must inexorably choose lying as his PRINCIPLE. ...usually it demands of its victims only allegiance to the lie, only complicity in the lie."

The Republicans have long followed the principle enunciated by Göbbels: “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” — Dr. Joseph Göbbels

But many people know this, one Star Trek episode filmed a version of an episode in Orwell's 1984 [see and click]
