A useful lie promulgated with energy and persistence has much power, but so, too, do the facts of nature.
A useful lie promulgated with energy and persistence has much power, but so, too, do the facts of nature. Is happiness important? If not, why not? And if it is important, why not look for it where it is incontrovertibly found? An individual who finds happiness in love, submission, obedience, and service, and in a guiltless, fulfilling, joyous, liberated sexuality, and such, is not obviously inferior to one who is lonely, miserable, angry, contrary, envious, spiteful, difficult, unpleasant, and so on. Happiness is largely connected with doing, and being, as one wishes, as one is content to be, and eager to be, and to be behaving in a way which is culturally accepted and approved.
