Something to Chew Upon, Indeed!
Does that mean you can only defeat your enemy by telling heaps of lies? Not necessarily. What it does mean, is that in addition to supplying correct information, you must understand that when you bless a villain he will curse you. So you cannot be a virtuous Simple Simon. You must know how to take the gloves off.
"And I doubt that there is a single seasoned successful activist, politician, media person or lawyer who is not aware of the fact that the 'truth' is almost irrelevant when it comes to gaining and/or maintaining power and/or popularity.
"Whoever, or whatever group, has control over the flow of information decides what the truth will be for most of those people who are on the receiving end of it."
And. . . it seems to me that there is an ART of "taking the gloves off".
An art that should be studied as carefully as you would study any other critically important thing.
