Truth is the first casualty in war.
Propaganda is the attempt to impose a faith system on a community or society.
There can be a very fine line of distinction between farce and terror.
Witness the ongoing inertia, worldwide, of 'political correctness' and the denial of common sense by so-called sophisticates of various sorts.

Secularists complain about the hypocrisy of Christians but snicker at earnest

Only then may terror be subdued.
