I remember how, after 9/11, plenty of people trotted out the bit in the Koran that gives Believers permission to lie if it was in the furtherance of the Cause.

Current Conservationism, and Trumpism in particular has this in spades: lying to the Press, to Judges and voters is not only permissible, it is evidence of commitment to the Leader.
