Many of you may have already read this quote, but perhaps most of you haven't. However, better sit down when you read it because you'll think you just time warped back into the early 20th Century.
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, German Minister of Propaganda for the 3rd Reich of Adolph Hitler.
Sound familiar? Hmmm, between 9/11, anthrax, Senator Wellstone, and Global warming, and New Orleans it's hard to know where to begin.
