The Pope joins the EU in a sad world of make-believe - Telegraph
Adolf Hitler's Propaganda Minister once said, "The bigger the lie, the more it will be believed."
In the U.K. Telegraph, Christopher Booker writes about the "two great acts of make-believe":
"When future historians come to look back on our age, few things will puzzle them more than the extent to which our politics became so dominated and bedevilled by two belief-systems, each based on an obsessive attempt to force into being an immensely complicated political construct which defied economic, psychological and scientific reality.
One of these was the peculiar way in which Europe’s politicians, with full support from the US, had set out to unite their continent under a form of supra-national government unlike anything the world had seen before. The other was the way those same politicians fell for the idea not just that human activities were disastrously changing Earth’s climate, but that by taking the most drastic measures they could somehow change it back again."
