Jeremy Campbell * Deception can never again be viewed as a simulated, freak, or even superfluous element of life. It is a characteristic, inescapable, and persistently important piece of our reality. As workmanship and fiction have progressively come to rule our way of life, we have gotten a disappointment with the slimness, the deficiency of exacting truth. * Jeremy Campbell. 2001.
