Words to ponder

For fun, try switching the names around. Which ones might be said by Karl Rove, Don Rumsfeld, or George W. MonkeyFace?

“The broad mass of the nation ... will more easily fall victim to a big lie than to a small one.” — Adolf Hitler, in his 1925 book Mein Kampf.

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.” — Nazi Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels.

“Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.” — Nazi Reich Marshal Hermann Göring during the Nuremberg Trials.

"If this were a dictatorship, it would be a heck of a lot easier... just so long as I'm the dictator." -Online NewsHour interview, Washington, DC, (December 18, 2000
