" People can be fooled all the time""You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time". This quote is attributed to Abraham Lincoln. I find this not to be correct in the present day. The political parties and their candidates promise heaven to all the people during election time. After the elections are over they remain loyal to the party but not to the people who elected them. This is the general scenario. The elected representatives may not remain loyal to the party also and may defect to another party for the good of the people. We the public, as a truthful citizens, go to the polling booth and cast our vote. We know pretty well that we are going to be fooled and yet we vote for some party or some one we want to.
The Shopping Malls conduct "Mega Sales" offering mega discounts. We flock to the malls and purchase the items. We know pretty well that the mega sale is to dispose off unsold items. We also know that the discounts are offered after the labels are tampered to higher rates. In this manner in many situations we allow ourselves to be fooled for ever. There may be few wise people who do not get fooled all the time. Do you think that we are being fooled forever or fooled for some time or not fooled at all?
