Why politicians lie

One thought on “Why politicians lie”

  1. What kind of ideal of rational are we talking here. The ideal rational person depends on the true theory of rationality. The prevailing view of what rationality is, is deeply mistaken. It might not be because people are idiots that politics don’t work, it might be because the political system does not work very well, or that it does and you just disagree with the results of political voting. it might be that you are mistaken about what and what not to vote for. The link between a rational voter and good outcomes is tenuous at best, rationality does not guarentee good outcomes, or even good voting.
