Lesson number one of political studies:
PREMISE: the basic of all warfare is to do what the enemy will not imagine that you will do.
CONSEQUENCE: In military or political war, truth is almost always IMPLAUSIBLE.
COROLLARY: Any good military or political strategist will take into consideration the adversary`s criteria of plausibility to use it as a weapon against the adversary.
ADDENDUM: To the elites,the enemy to be deceived is always the people.
The impression of plausibility or implausibility, used to accept or not the news, is an infallible criteria to identify political imbecility. Anything that actually works in politics has to sound like conspiracy theories.
