The politics that we live daily is plagued with all kinds of lies. From the innocent who turns their back on problems; even the accomplice created by the networks, - euphemistically called "social" - great net to impose another lie, avoiding a previous one from being discovered. Own to negotiated media propaganda.
The lie is ancient like man. The Greeks created the goddess Ápate to personify deception, pain, fraud. His alter ego was his twin brother: Dolo; king of tricks and bad tricks. I spook that he also jumped out of Pandora's box. They carried all the tricks that humanity consumed as opiates of intrigue, perjury, artifice, and even presidential self-appointments.

Equally remarkable was the Constitution and Confederation that the Iroquois Indians promoted in 1450, which gave, Pej. wide freedoms for women. Democratic confederation located in the territory, which went from the north of New York and reached the Great Lakes.
Process recognized, as an example, by the "Founding Father", Benjamin Franklin. The references are taken from the text of Wladimir Acosta, The monster and its entrails, Critical study of the American society of Edit. Monte Ávila 2020.
I want to highlight such lies that are intended to show that the United States is the first democracy in the world. Not only in chronology, but in "democratic" performance. Thesis, which was a bit damaged, not only with the latest savage behavior of Donald Trump, but with many other atrocities: black slavery, coca, wars and lies.
