He who controls the media controls the minds of the masses. One only has to look at the vitriolic message that was consistently put out by the media (controlled by the wealthy elite) regarding socialism and Corbyn and Bernie Sanders.
Goebbels summed it up:
‘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. ‘
This is the principle through which both Trump and Johnson have prospered. Dominic Cummings is the master of the lie. In many ways Goebbels was the architect for this political mess. Now we are lumbered with fake news, lies, Trump and Brexit. Instead of Jews being the scapegoat they used Muslims.
This is what else Goebbels had to say:
“Think of the press as a great keyboard
on which the government can play.”
“The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly – it must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over.”
“Man is and remains an animal. Here a beast of prey, there a house-pet, but always an animal.”
THERE WILL COME A DAY WHEN ALL THE LIES WILL COLLAPSE UNDER THEIR OWN WEIGHT, AND THE TRUTH WILL TRIUMPH AGAIN
