Bertolt Brecht once wrote that whoever intends to fight lies and ignorance must overcome, at the very least, five difficulties. First, one should have the courage to write the truth, despite the measures others take to stifle it. One should possess, moreover, the intelligence in order to find the truth in the midst of noise and manipulation. One should, at the same time, master the art of making truth a weapon. One must present, in the fourth place, the ability to target those who will use that weapon most effectively. Finally, one should possess the cunning means to spread this weapon among them. Judging by these words, it’s very likely that Brecht would have smiled gratefully, if he had gotten his hands on this book.
