Covering Lie

“I like the term covering lie …: lies so big they are believed as truths and look so inevitable that they are justified by us in our daily lives even though there is plenty of evidence against them. Lies are: America is the land of opportunity for everybody; Britain is the home of modern democracy; slavery has been abolished; them is a term that includes women.”

Mark P. Leone, Critical Historical Archaeology
