“I had noticed ……. how carefully Sir Edward Grey lied in order to prevent the public from knowing ……. I naively imagined that when the public discovered how he had lied to them, they would be annoyed; instead of which, they were grateful to him for having spared them the moral responsibility.”

(From The Autobiography of Bertrand Russell by Bertrand Russell, 1872 – 1970)
