Quotation of the day-Wednesday,14 May 2008

14/05/2008

“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.”

Goebbels, Hitler

Often attributed to Goebbels in varying versions, there is a school of thought that Goebbels built upon a saying from Hitler. This of itself does not matter.

What is so disquieting is the realisation that what was said by Hitler/Goebbels is absolutely true, as we see everyday.

Readers are invited to comment with examples they can think of in relation to sat, the last 25 years.
