The powerful have always arranged the truth so that History may be written just as they wish. For if they are carefully engineered, lies can be extremely effective. There may be nothing better than a counter-truth to preserve a state secret, an illusion to manipulate public opinion, or an invention to start a war. The 20th century opened up a new era: the age of mass communication and mass media, only making lies an increasingly powerful weapon. Serving every ideology, lies have shaped and formed our modern-day world, for better and for worse: what would History be without propaganda, disinformation or dissimulation? Who are the liars?
