It's a very famous quote, one that fits perfectly, to describe EVERYTHING that's been wrong about this Stop the Canal Clear-cut Facebook group from the very start of their failed attempt to deny public safety issues affecting the INTEGRITY of the NYS Canal System.

The worst lies are the lies we tell ourselves. We live in denial of what we do, even what we think. We do this because we're afraid.

You may have seen or heard this quote on a recent television commercial about smoking, but it applies to this Facebook group equally as well. The quote has been modified by others, and stated in another way, with the same meaning.

The worst lies are the ONES we tell ourselves.

These two quotes center on the idea of deluding youself to the point where fiction & lies suddenly become a personal truth. That personal truth is unsupported by any fact or reason, it's a lie, fabricated by the person to hide their fears, according to philosopher & author, Richard Bach.

And no one has deluded themselves more than the Founders of the Facebook Group called Stop the Canal Clear-cut
