What is the cost of lies? - Valery Legasov, Chernobyl (2019)

This quote was added by fockinusernaime
To be a scientist is to be naive. We are so focused on our search for truth, we fail to consider how few actually want us to find it. But it is always there, whether we see it or not, whether we choose to or not. The truth doesn't care about our needs or wants. It doesn't care about our governments, our ideologies, our religions. It will lie in wait, for all time. This at last is the gift of Chernobyl. Where I once would fear the cost of truth, now I only ask: What is the cost of lies?
