Three Perennial Lies in the World

Gerard Menuhin

…by Jonas E. Alexis and Gerard Menuhin


Gerard Menuhin is a British-Swiss journalist, writer, novelist, and film producer. He is the son of Jewish parents, the American violinist and conductor Yehudi Menuhin, who is considered “one of the greatest violinists of the 20th century.”

Menuhin’s mother was a ballet dancer and died in 2003 at the age of 90.[1] He graduated from Stanford University and is the author of the new book Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil.

Jonas E. Alexis: If you haven’t read Gerard Menuhin’s timely book, Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil, then I would highly encourage you to get a copy. It deconstructs one categorical lie after another, and it also shows the inherent contradictions that exist in the political landscape in Europe and America.

For example, Marie le Pen, the leader of France’s far-right Front National, is really concerned about illegal immigrations in France (especially for Muslims). But le Pen, as Menuhin puts it, “has taken a firm pro-Israel stance.”[2]

Keep in mind that Israel has been pushing the United States and other countries in the West to completely annihilate the Palestinians since 1948. Some of those Palestinians moved to Gaza during Israel’s ethnic cleansing, and Gaza is now a concentration camp. Gaza, according to Israeli historian Ilan Pappe, is “the biggest prison on earth.”

But that doesn’t move le Pen one bit. She doesn’t seem to understand that France or any country in Europe wouldn’t have a major refugee crisis if much of the West stopped destroying Middle East countries long ago. In that sense, le Pen and others are playing into the hands of their oppressors. What she needs to do is, as Menuhin would have put it, “tell the truth and shame the devil.”

Menuhin has indeed exposed more than hundreds of lies in his recent book, but here he is going to “shame the devil” by dispelling three categorical and perennial lies here. It is worth reading, for it is short and to the point.

Gerard Menuhin: ‘I don’t know who invented the term ‘post-truth’, but I can imagine who benefits most from it: liars. Journalist Ruth Marcus, apparently an authority on the subject, wrote a column on post-truth politics (Washington Post, December 2, 2016), as if lying were something new among politicians.

Like millions of people, I am accustomed to respect the truth and to despise lies and liars. Now, it turns out that liars are the most successful people on earth. If anyone is curious about how this extraordinary situation came to be, they should read ‘Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil’.

This book is my gift to humanity. The fact that a minute section of humanity rejects it is not surprising, one cannot please everyone. The book exposes an ancient conspiracy against humanity, whose power is so great that it has succeeded, through lies, in imposing on about 30 countries fraudulent laws, which feign to counter alleged ‘bias-motivation’ (‘hate-crime’), but in reality, are designed to suppress freedom of expression, if this is directed against liars.

In addition to innumerable lesser lies, there have been three global lies, on which their inventors own the copyright and thus can be used for their benefit alone.

The First Great Lie declares the Rights of Man and a related Dignity of Man. This lie served as subterfuge for the murderous so-called ‘French’ Revolution of 1789, during which around 600,000 French people were robbed of their dignity.[3]

The Rights of Man and His concomitant Dignity have at no time prevented people from being mistreated and killed in the foulest fashion, often as a result of the machinations of the very beings who invented these rights.

The Second Great Lie is that money is finite and must be borrowed at interest (while simultaneously being produced out of thin air). This has resulted in the entire world being forced into debt.[4]

The Third Great Lie claims that there has been an exclusive massacre, which non-exclusive people must never forget. If this lie, while just as preposterous as the first two, is not yet quite as universally believed, it’s not for want of trying.

Lying for these beings is not so much an occasionally effective instrument as an ideology, a way of life. The drawback is that, eventually, their very existence has come to depend on lies. Truth, therefore, is an embarrassment which they must attack. They and their myriad minions fight around the clock to perpetuate their lies by twisting the facts and the law until they can be used to forbid and to punish freedom of expression, as though it were a crime equivalent to murder.

Ever since the birth of the Great Lies, there has existed a struggle between truth and lies. Will society lose its already precarious hold on reality by adopting a modish sophistry, or will it stick with plain unfashionable truth? Only you can decide which code you’re comfortable with.
