Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passion, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.
If something is a reasonably accurate representation of reality, it is a fact. As humans, we’re incapable of observing, remembering, and then stating any event with 100 percent accuracy, even though most people try.
However, if you tell a lie, that’s what it is.
If you repeatedly tell a lie, it remains a lie.
If you get a million people to repeat your lie, it still remains a lie. It does not become a fact.
You may be able to kiss a frog and have it become a prince, but a lie is a lie is a lie.
It’s not a difficult concept, so why do so many people find it impossible to understand?
