How a regime responds to the ineluctable power of facts is a telling sign of whether the regime serves or rules the people. 
Prudence, in both senses of the term, is the first victim of bad government. Prudence as truth is sacrificed before the needs of the ruling cadre, no matter what, to present a rosy picture to the people; prudence as the careful stewarding of the future is lost under the secular leadership's self-induced pressure to secure the present at all costs.
