    "My religion is based on truth and non-violence. Truth is my God. Non-violence is the means of realizing Him."

    For Gandhi, violence was a distortion of energy. He stated "Poverty is the worst form of violence." Lying is violence. Some refinements: e.g., defense of self is not violence; lying to save an innocent life from Communist state police is not violence.

    So-called "mass values" references the deplorable behavior of a mass or collective of many when they are distorting the truth; a corollary, the "violence of elite values" might be noted, by the same metric.
