The Lie We Live


The Lie We Live (2015) is a video written & created by myself, Spencer Cathcart, which I originally published in January 2015. It received over 26 million views, however a music company put a copyright claim on it over a small portion of background music. In limited time I was able to license new music to avoid this issue happening again. Otherwise this is the same video and the words are exactly the same.

SUBTITLES: Watch The Lie We Live with subtitles in over 40 languages through “Settings” in the lower right corner of the video.

NOTE: Do not download & reupload my videos or copy in other languages (any translation of my writing is also copyright infringement). The original YouTube link can be shared anywhere which has subtitles in 40 languages so there’s no reason to upload it elsewhere. Subtitles provide a much more accurate depiction of my intended message and original viewing experience in other languages. Reuploads also make it very difficult for me to build an audience to share my future videos with.

Music used (in order):
“Desolation” – Really Slow Motion
“Frozen Synapse” – Audiomachine
“Above All” – Petteri Sainio
“Signal Processing” – Audiomachine
“Wide Open Sky” – Audiomachine
“Journey Through The Portal” – Audiomachine
“Ice of Phoenix” – Audiomachine

Along with my own footage, this video contains a few very short images from the film Blue Planet and some other sources in accordance with fair use policies.

  1. So what is the answer? Money is not everything, but it’s essential in the system that we live in. If someone wants to become a ruthless businessman, it’s just a choice. With that choice, comes certain consequences. Ultimately, we are free to be what we aspire to be. Free to choose what we want to believe in and reap the harvest of our thinking and action, bitter or sweet. I think people wants to live a fulfilled life more so than just being happy.






  3. you go to school to learn to get a job and nothing els.. change the school and you change the world. school should teach kids about bulling, what it does, and how it can effect people for life, what are real values (skills, social, knowledge, kindness, helpful), what makes people really happy(friends, family, nice people, hobbies, skills), and what makes you unhappy(social media, comparing yourself with others, living your life for money or work, wrong values),how thoughts are connected to emotions and how to deal with emotions with thoughts, how to detect sociopaths and nacistic people, and how to avoid abuse. understand manipulation and how not to get manipulated. how does marketing work, what are real friends, and the importance of that, why family is important. with all that all those millions with mental health problems could have been provided, and the world would be a better place.
    i can make this list way longer. ive been striving my whole life in understanding what is really important. nobody tolt me all this.. i even talked with people who did a study psychology, and even those people dont learn values, they teach how to deal with specific problems.but i geuss they dont want us to understand all this. they want us to run in circles..

  4. We have to change the world . We have to build a team around the world . i believe that we can do it . We cannot sit in our homes and do nothing its time for a change lets do this guyss .

  5. We are all perfectly trained mindless lemmings, just waiting to be told to jump off that proverbial Cliff, and we will, because we have all been conditioned to do so without question. That’s why I have never fit in with society, I refuse to be bound by an abstraction, I love to do things my way, and frankly don’t care what the rest of the world has to say. I only wish more people would follow my lead, just look at the devastation being caused at this very moment in the United States because of Donald Trump. It’s all an exercise in futility, none of us have the slightest idea what to do, because we have all been trained to obey, and in the absence of that, we’re lost.
