Food for Thought:

On the Endless Flow of LIES at the Republican Convention



All bourgeois politicians/representatives of the capitalist-imperialist system lie when they feel it is necessary in pursuit of their objectives; but the fascists, with Trump the concentrated example of this, lie regularly and systematically and as a basic means of communication—that is to say, manipulation.  

This is the difference between lying for a purpose and lying as a mode of operation. This is analogous to the difference between what the “mainstream” media (again, not Fox “news”) do and, on the other hand, the garbage that characterizes to a significant degree “news” (or what substitutes for news) on social media. It is also another expression of the difference between bourgeois dictatorship in the “democratic” form and outright fascist bourgeois dictatorship.
