Nobel Prize for Literature!

“[T]he majority of politicians, on the evidence available to us, are interested not in truth but in power and in the maintenance of that power. To maintain that power it is essential that people remain in ignorance, that they live in ignorance of the truth, even the truth of their own lives. What surrounds us therefore is a vast tapestry of lies, upon which we feed.”
– Harold Pinter, Nobel Lecture (Literature), 2005

While I can see this meshing well with my previous post, all I can think is "So... what, we're eating the tapestries? Is that where you're going with this?"

Or, "Politicians are liars and we're moths?"
