Truth

In American colleges and universities, truth is equated to a phantasmic view of the world, in which socialism is the ultimate revelation of truth and justice.  Harvard’s coat of arms bears the motto “Veritas,” the Latin word for truth; Yale’s, “Lux et Veritas,” light and truth.  Both institutions since the early 1900s have used the word truth in the same sense and to the same ends as the Soviets employed it in their propaganda journal “Pravda,” a Russian word meaning truth.
