Chernobyl and the cost of systematic untruth

I watched the five-part miniseries on Chernobyl with Spacebunny over the last month and it was really good. And while the show did not tie the historical Soviet situation to the current situation faced by the West, it would be hard for any viewer to fail to miss the obvious analogy between the way in which the systematic untruths of the Soviet system led to the meltdown of the reactor and the way the systematic untruths of the West in general, and the USA in particular, are leading to war, ethnic conflict, and societal meltdown.

I addressed this analogy on the 400th Darkstream on Unauthorized. Watch it there, discuss it here.
