Michael Rivero on the psychological underpinnings of faith in government

Most people prefer to believe their leaders are just and fair even in the face of evidence to the contrary, because most people do not want to admit they do not have the courage to do anything about it. Most propaganda is not designed to fool the critical thinker, but only to give moral cowards an excuse not to think at all.

~Michael Rivero, political investigator and social commentator
