Quote of the day

" 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."

Joseph Goebbels

Woolfie, I dug this particular quote out prompted by the post below. If you look at the quotes they are often related to something I have posted on that day.

Though in this case as you point out there are so very many instances to choose from…

Henry, Yep – That’s me and you are welcome.
