Hitler understood very well the minds of the people. To quote him in Mein kampf:
"The size of the lie is a definite factor in causing it to be believed, because the vast masses of a nation are in the depths of their hearts more
easily deceived than they are consciously and intentionally bad.
The primitive simplicity of their minds renders them more easy victims of a big lie than a small one, because they themselves often tell little lies
but would be ashamed to tell big ones.
Such a form of lying would never enter their heads. They would never credit others with the possibility of such great impudence as the complete
reversal of facts. Even explanations would long leave them in doubt and hesitation, and any trifling reason would dispose them to accept a thing as
Something therefore always remains and sticks from the most imprudent of lies, a fact which all bodies and individuals concerned in the art of lying
in this world know only too well, and therefore they stop at nothing to achieve this end." ~ Adolph Hitler, Mein Kampf
Even as Hitler massacred millions, he was loved by rational, conscious, observant German civilians. By the time they realised their horrible
complicity in the situation, it was too late. Today, can any US citizen stand up and confidently claim that their government is not engaging in
similar manipulation of the population? Can any US citizen, in good conscience, assert that the clearly belligerent nature of the Bush administration
and those directing its policies will not lead them to the same fate as the unwitting Germans under Hitler?
Before answering, consider today's Signs of the Times.
The Bush Reich is pushing for the right to declare US Citizens as Enemy Combatants or terrorists, with claims that it is for your protection. The
problem is that the definition of a terrorist has been expanded and distorted so that just about anyone can fall under that category. As more people
become irate over continued war and the failing economy, more people will fall under the legal definition of terrorist. There will be no trials, you
will be guilty before proven innocent, and cowardly and complicit Congress will pass any law Bush gives them. The world's largest terrorist state
will continue to terrorize the world with lies of WMD and terrorize its citizens with accusations of terrorist. These are sad days for those who love
the principles the US represented and for those who love the country itself. It appears the USA may be gone forever.
It is reported that Saddam has cancer. Who knows just what to believe, with the over flowing cornucopia of lies from the Bush administration? A bit
too convenient for Bush. He got his PR stunt and a misdirection from the WMD questions. Now Saddam may not have enough time to implicate the Bush
regime with tales of their long relationship, or not enough time for the world to figure out he is not the real Saddam. He may have enough time
however to indict himself and then pass the blame off on Syria. Meanwhile, a new photo surfaces that contradicts the official Saddam capture story.
The Israelis make fools of the Libyans, it would seem that a secret is only secret if it is in the interest of Israel to keep it secret.
The US is in the market for UFOs.
The "duck muck" is back! Regular readers know that we are referring to a mysterious and smelly substance that repeatedly coated homes in New
Zealand. There were several theories that just did not add up, and then talk of the phenomenon died as the muck season wound down. This time Illinois
