"People avoid the truth because the first bit of truth uttered and lived would draw more truth into
action and so on indefinitely, and this would rip most people right off the customary tracks of
their lives. But people, basically, know what is true and what is not, even if they so often render
help to the lie. They support the lie because the lie has become a crutch without which life would
not be possible. Therefor, in common human intercourse, the truth, and not the lie, is suspected
as being phony." - Wilhelm Reich
