How fortunate for governments that the people they administer don’t think.
By the skillful and sustained use of propaganda, one can make a people see even heaven as hell or an extremely wretched life as paradise.
Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.
It is not truth that matters, but victory.
What luck for rulers that men do not think.
