Why do people deny that the Governments lie? My view:
1) Blind Faith - Thats both in the religious and the political ideological sense. The religious angle in politics is undeniable, what with
people such as Bush playing the God Card for re-election. They know how to pull your strings, and they pull them as they need to.
2) Fear - Fear of terrorists, fear of communists, fear of whatever. The vast majority of people are afraid of things they will never ever try
to comprehend, and as such, look to the Government of their nation for protection. Perfect example: Iraq and the support the US citizens gave to the
invasion of it because they believed Saddam was bosum buddies with Osama and his crew.
3) Ignorance/Apathy The average man on the street doesnt always actually care about politics. Why? Because its easier for them to just nod and
carry on with life the way the Government sets things out for them. Its also easier to just agree rather than find out the truth. Therefore, they
don't know any better than what their Leaders tell them. And as they so often don't know any better, they soon lose the ability to question what the
official line is.
