In an earlier post I extolled the virtues of a management motivational bullet point, “Get all the liars in one room.”  It serves to neutralize them.

Today’s post is a public service gathering of some of the proponents of one of the most effective lying strategies, The Big Lie.  In this, a person with a public forum starts repeatedly telling the same few lies, over and over.  Their comrades begin repeating the list of “talking points.”  Gradually a few more people, and then a lot more people start repeating – and more to the point, believing – the same lies.

And now, pictures of some recent-history Big Liars. (hey, it beats pictures of my cats)
