“Naturally the common people don't want war; neither in Russia, nor in England, nor in America, nor in Germany. That is understood. But after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. 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 to 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.”
This was a quote from Herman Goering and it has never been more applicable than in our day.
Whenever politicians, corporate leaders, religious leaders, or cultural leaders speak of some dark enemy that is jeopardizing our way of life, 99.99999% of the time they are manipulating you.
This message is meant primarily for the rightwing, libertarian, neoconservative, evangelical or catholic, nutcases out there. You are being led by the noses to your own destruction. Your leaders want more power and the simplest way for them to get it is to convince you that you are under assault.
Learn the lessons of history.....earlier this time.
