Propaganda is rooted in selfishness, it need not be lying but usually is by omission.

Truth should be sought without concern for how it will make one feel, how it will challenge prejudgements and predilections, preferences and desires; essentially the entire package of self-identity wrappers and labels and self-worth.

When the "me" is managed, the other is less bothersome.
