The greatest lie, and perhaps the greatest evil as well is the claim to uniqueness by a tribe, religion, nation. Whether if the "Chosen People", "One True Church", "Master Race", whatever...it is a lie, and a source of endless evil as history easily demonstrates. It is like feasting from the toilet of human vanity.

Is it slavery? Moon landing? The cover-up of genocide on Native Americans, then using their names for everything a large Cheesequake etc?

Discuss.
Poland started WW2 by attacking Germany.

I think people are saying that it wasn't discovered by Europeans. We all know there were other peoples living here.....and they didn't really 'discover' it, more like wandered into it....

That there's 2 major political parties in the U.S.

I agree with Gore Vidal, when, back in the 70's he stated: The U.S., essentially, has one political party, one side leans left, another right, but still one party.

When 90% of our Senators receive donations from the war industries and give the military whatever they wants, there's your proof right there!

Another lie is Democrats are the bigger spenders! When either party leader gets ahold of those credit cards, it makes no difference whatsoever! Research the biggest spending Republican Governor that ever existed in the U.S.: Nelson Rockefeller!

I'm not going to argue about it here because I'm already embroiled in several threads on other sub-forums here but ... Since you asked ...

I believe we are creating what in the future will be known as the greatest lie ever told. History is in the making right now but it's still in the keeping of the context of this thread because its origins were during WWII/Nuremberg Trials.

It will reduce the Salem Witch Trials to a mere paragraph & overshadow even the Holocaust & that would be Vaccines & the Global Immunization Policy of the WHO as advocated by the CDC. If anyone is even left to write or read the books.

The eradication of the evolutionary process of the human race is unintentionally underway.

Well; you asked!

I think that Gore was on to something with the above. The genius of the Constitution authors was to design a government with power so diffused that it was hard to get things done, and impossible to get things done without compromise. The consequence has been a nation which has avoided extremes. If you select the president you believe to have been furthest to the left, and the one furthest to the right, was life dramatically different in the US under their administrations?

And Columbus was totally lost when he ended up on America's Soils , thought that he was On India Soil. Well Caucasian wandered around this earth in the exact same fashion as the " First Nation People " did.

Recently I have the feeling that the WHOLE history of our civilization is one big lie.
