4. Policy based upon lies debases democracy

the entire concept of democracy is based upon the ideas formed in The Enlightenment that people are capable of using reason to determine the validity of various stances and issues.

naturally, if you have no rational reason for a law to exist, you try to muddy the waters with lies.

in fact, that's sort of a description of the republican party's existence at this time.
