EnigmaticWorld Posted November 13, 2020 Share Posted November 13, 2020 1 hour ago, Mr H said: When we look at why it's deemed as being so much deadlier than the common flu, I personally look at the big lie technique often used by Goebbels during the second world war. He cites "If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State." Pretty sure he was accusing the British of using the big lie, but the victor will never be asked if he told the truth. "There will come a day, when all the lies will collapse under their own weight, and truth will again triumph." - Joseph Goebbels Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
