"[I]n the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. "

oh so true

    The United States Inc. has been one great lie after another. Restore the Republic and the Constitution.

    Al is correct "Oh so true" and that is why we are in the difficut position we are in. There are many examples that come to mind in recent history but two most famous ones are Dick Cheney's "Deficits don't matter" and the so called conservative lie that conservation doesn't matter and "Global warming is a myth". Yes the big lies and liars are doning us in for sure.

    Poor Waffler...so deluded...Global Warming is Al Gore's sick joke promulgated to further the green (communist) agenda. (And make Al rich)But I guess I forgot...you are a communist so you're on a mission to further a big lie. Funny, your commie friends in China aren't doing much to clean up their act...why don't you start with them?

    Beginning of quote: But it remained for the Jews, with their unqualified capacity for falsehood, and their fighting comrades, the Marxists, to impute responsibility for the downfall precisely to the man who alone had shown a superhuman will and energy in his effort to prevent the catastrophe which he had foreseen and to save the nation from that hour of complete overthrow and shame. By placing responsibility for the loss of the world war on the shoulders of Ludendorff they took away the weapon of moral right from the only adversary dangerous enough to be likely to succeed in bringing the betrayers of the Fatherland to Justice.

    the Big Lie is that people think Hitler used it but that is the LIE......he only described the technique used by others.....wake up people!!!

    Wake up to what ray? That Hitler was a good guy after all?

    Talk about being poor or at least mentally deficient, Carlton accuses me of being Communist because I am yes a Green, and apparently wishes to state that being Green (alas poor Kermit) is being Communist. He then states that China is a big apparently non-Green Communist entity. I can name other so called Communist states that were non-Green in the Eastern Bloc especially old Romania. In the end the only conclusion is that J Carlton knows nothing of which he speaks. And such people are the biggest suckers and promulgators of the big lie. If you know nothing then might as well believe in myth and that is what they do.

    Lots of wind Waffler...yet you still managed to make "no point at all". You "Greens" are the useful idiots of the UN's Agenda 21. You are Stalin's wet dream...Have a good day ...Kamrade. :)
