“In a time of universal deceit – telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” – George Orwell
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it,” Joseph Goebbels once stated, “people will eventually come to believe it.
“The lie,” Goebbels went on, “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.”
He’s right. Truth is the greatest enemy of the State. Which is why governments spend massive amounts of money and resources to suppress truth and spew disinformation to confuse the masses.
