"Hitler’s dictatorship differed in one fundamental point from all its predecessors in history. It was the first dictatorship in the present period of modern technical development, a dictatorship which made complete use of all technical means for the domination of its own country. Through technical devices like the radio and the loud-speaker, eighty million people were deprived of independent thought. It was thereby possible to subject them to the will of one man."
Albert Speer
[Berthold Konrad Hermann Albert Speer] (1905-1981) German architect, Adolf Hitler's chief architect before becoming Minister of Armaments and War Production for the Third Reich
at the Nuremberg Trials after World War II, 1946

Reader comments about this quote:
Emperor Obama, the fraud and foreigner, the president usurper, who has yet to prove he is a natural born citizen, is working hard to deprive the United States of independent thought and the media appears to love the tight collar and leash he has upon them who suffer from delusions of his grandeur.

    The only thought they want Americans to have now is that it is a necessity for Americans to depend on their government to lead the way out of our problems and to chill out if the problems don't go away because it'll take time to fix them. Trust us.

    This quote reminds me only of Rush Limbaugh who imposes his big mouth stupidity on millions of willing and adoring ninconpoops. David will you prove that you are a natural born citizen!

    Financial surveillance, Street surveillance, Fear mongering, False flag wars, False flag security, Gun control, Private police agencies (Homeland Security) and on and on...all promoted by the media. All truth of the matter avoided by the media. Fact is, you can't trust a single thing they tell you anymore. We're living in a soft dictatorship that is going global.

    Waff, speaking of stupidity, how about Pelosi , Reed,and that loose cannon, Joe Biden.You may not agree with Limbaugh, but stupid he ain't.

    Waffler lol, Rush has so much more influence (executive, judicial, legislative, financial, etc.) over the majority of the media than does Obamunist your stupid leftist ramblings play well to the current political correctness crowd. You did miss the point where Obamunist is following Hitler's play book into power.
     -- Mike, Norwalk     
    We are in agreement Mike about Limbaugh having influence over the non-thinking crowd, he is not stupid in that way no he is a genious in that way and so was Hitler. But he and Hitler are both just gutter politicians who know how to sway the ignorant and unthinking. They should know who they are. Limbaugh is especially smart in his ability to bank a $400 million dollar contract for his duplicity in deceit and lies.
     -- Waffler, Smith     
    Clinton, W, and Obama ALL have implemented measures during their tenure to control the press and spoon-feed the media whatever it will swallow. Propaganda is alive and well in America and we should remember the German people under Hitler who let fascism roll right in under their noses -- are Americans any less gullible or mis-informed? Have we been debased so much as to demand bread and circuses for our happiness and security? Turn off the boob tube for a couple months, relax without all the hyped up gloom and doom, and the next time you hear this pablum, you will recognize it immediately. It is conditioning pure and simple -- they don't call it television 'programming' for nothing!

    Just watched the movie "Nuremberg" (2000). Albert Speer was so "on-the-ball". He couldn't possibly have known how much so, when he made his great statement. The awful truth is people are still extremely gullible and do accept premises at face value with little or no due diligence. This is how many of us got scammed into believing corporations needed little or no regulation because they would "regulate themselves" for their own best interests. What a laugh! Many still haven't learned better, unfortunately.

    Waffler, The "non-thinking crowd" came out in droves last November 6th. Obama is scary but the fact that we have enough people willing to elect him twice is really scary. It was fool me once, shame on me, fool me twice, shame on me again.

    WAFFLER- Rush Limbaugh a politician? OMG! What OFFICE does/did he hold? Why does he SCARE Progressives so bad? Is it because some of what he says may be TRUE?
