General Election: the only thing you won't hear in the next 30 days is the truth

At times such as this I am reminded of some words from Cardinal Newman: "We now have passed the Gate, and are within the House of Judgment." Yet one cannot make a sensible judgment without good information: and election campaigns are about assertion and not fact. Much of what you encounter in the next 30 days will be propaganda, and should be treated accordingly. Your intelligence will be insulted in a most insolent fashion. The truth will be kept from you on every possible occasion. Artifice will entirely overpower substance. No wonder so many of us long for May 7.
