    "Next the statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon
    the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those
    conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse
    to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince
    himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep
    he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception." -- Mark Twain
