I was taught not to lie. The Tedius Zanarukando doctrine does not lie. It may appear to be nonsense, but it is based on science, and science does not lie. Therefore, the doctrine is factually correct. Remember the words of George Duwell (in 1984, "In the world of universal deceit, telling the truth is revolutionary.")
