If there is anyone who ever live who knew ever more about how to spread lies and propaganda than Adolf Hitler, it would be Paul Joseph Goebbels, the Minister of Propaganda of the Nazi Party during the Third Reich. Goebbels ordered countless book burnings while he was in power in an attempt to crush even the discovery of any dissenting ideas. Almost every form of communication possible in Germany during the Nazi regime came under the direct control of this mentally ill being. Goebbels made a profound statement regarding lying, an activity at which he quite obviously excelled. He claimed that "the bigger the lie, the more it will be believed." This statement touches upon a very important factor to consider that Geobbels well understood. Most people are very prone to a condition that is the equivalent to a state of deep psychological denial. No matter how insane or destructive a lie that they have accepted may be, if the lie is deeply enough embedded within a belief system, people will be loathe to challenge it, for doing so would require them to step out of a rigidly-defined comfort zone and begin to challenge their belief systems themselves. Sadly, relatively few people ever venture outside of this comfort zone and make these challenges to established beliefs in the name of the discovery of Truth.
