In the early 1940s, Joseph Goebbels, Minister of Propaganda and National Enlightenment in Germany, wrote in his diary:
“Now it will be easy to carry on the fight, for we can call on all the resources of the State. Radio and press are at our disposal. We shall stage a masterpiece of propaganda. And this time, naturally, there is no lack of money.”
Why does this sound so familiar?
“With the tools of democracy, democracy was murdered and lawlessness made ‘legal.’”
Why does this sound familiar?
“Raw power ruled, and its only real goal was to destroy all other power besides itself.”
Why does this sound so strikingly, frighteningly familiar?
