As Brick said, "Mendacity is a system that we live in." How true now with the cyber augmentations that can compound this system infinitely? He suggested two answers: The drink and death. Both are solutions for cowardice. How about asking better questions? How about the role of skepticism? How about walking right up to the monstrous mendacious system and staring it down armed with the integrity of a child. A motorcycle gang member walked into a corner store. He was known as a bully and a brute. A 5-year-old girl noticed him, walked up to him and said, "May I sing you a song?" The chain-wearing Hell's Angel grunted, so the little girl grinned & began: "Jesus loves me this I know for the Bible tells me so..." The colossal fellow melted as his tears flowed. The little girl smiled and touched his hand.
