The Last Lie Government Will Ever Tell
The more powerful a government, the more likely it is to engage in war and conquest. Case in point: US involvement in Ukraine.
In 2014 the US led a coup that displaced a “democratically-elected” president, Viktor Yanukovych.

All this is well-known.
Also well-known among the sentient is the US having a history of lying the country into war (also here.) When you’re a rich and powerful government war can be a very lucrative undertaking — for some. It’s rarely that way for t
