"In 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. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying."
Adolf Hitler
(1889-1945) German Nazi Dictator
Mein Kampf, p. 197(?) 14th Edition.

I'm not sure how to rate this  5 stars for accuracy or a thumbs down for accuracy (and the effect it has). The ole adage of the adversary telling a thousand truths to make you belief 1 great lie is a live and well within the occupying statist theocracy infesting this land (and its patrons). The patrons (primitive simpletons) of said demonic theocracy, within their minds and hearts, believe the large-scale falsehoods of their carnal gods.

    Mike I share your rating conundrum on this quote, sad part is that it's true and it is currently being used by progressive revolutionaries today, together with other strategies that Joseph Goebbels lays out about "accuse your opponent of that which you are guilty" they have that one nailed down to a science.

    It seems that in the absence of power by the left desperation breeds insanity in the direction that the brainwashed useful idiots would have us go, rejecting founding principles they don't even understand and then having their minds twisted by history revisionists like Howard Zinn. Right now I believe we are in a cold Civil War that is just waiting for the right catalyst to turn hot, radical leftist have already opened fire at the Republican baseball game and tweets are going out for someone to step up to take one for the team and assassinate Justice Kavanaugh.

    Dark clouds on the horizon and the storm is approaching and now is when we need our most dedicated patriots!

    For the most part, all the talk of politicians and all their legislation is designed to condition us to accept their lies. 

    Americans are waking up to 'fake news' which has been fake for a long time, but only now is the facade starting to fall. 

    Next will be the realization of the 'fake authority' of government officials of all stripes, making arbitrary rules for others to follow with criminal penalties.  'Fake laws' that do not apply to the common man are 'enforced' daily.  Of course there's also 'fake medicine' that merely treats conditions rather than cure disease.  'Fake food,' merely tastes good but without any nutrition.  'Fake education,' required by law to receive.   'Fake money'! ;-) Don't even get me started!!

    Everyone of us has been born into a deluded world with professional liars at the helm.  Reality is purposely veiled by all the followers and believers who then project that upon the children.  The liberation from the bondage of lies and deception is a constant process of awakening and acting in accordance with the laws of nature (i.e. reality).  For me, this is what the spiritual path is  I know no other way to separate the wheat from the chaff.
