“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”
— Joseph Goebbels
The concept of present day manipulation of the public by the media entities or “fake news,”can loosely be referred to as “confirmation bias” and is analogous to the old Nazi practice that if a lie is repeated often enough, the lie will come to be accepted as the truth. This is the reason why in a 60 minute television program, you may see the same advertisement six times.
This psychological technique was in evidence in the classic Solomon Asch's experiment where it was proven that people “could be coerced” into giving an obviously incorrect answer because of subtle peer pressure. This pressure is effective, according to the social science research, about 60% of the time. Also, the Milgram experiment which followed the Asch experiment, demonstrated that two-thirds of people “would murder a stranger,” for no reason based on an authority figure's suggestion while only using minimal social and non-coercive pressure.
We were, and still are, inundated with the message that Donald Trump was illegitimate, that he is a xenophobic, racist, sexist, misogynist reprobate. This is what we see from the presstitute mainstream "fake news" media everyday. Nonetheless, Trump won the 2016 election shocking both the Establishment and the progressive Left in the country, whom collectively lost their minds. Subsequently, for the 2020 election the “Nazi psyops” techniques that dominated the media for four plus years, intensified, along with “good ‘ole” and reliable ballot stuffing, and we now have a compromised, physically and mentally feeble, career conman of a President, China Joe Buyden. I’ll be surprised if the 25th isn’t implemented before the end of the year.
Now, these same techniques, are being employed to convince the direct action wing of the Democratic Party, ANTIFA and BLM, to burn down America before the remnants of Trump’s MAGA (now labeled as domestic terrorists) can make a comeback. This is classic Rules for Radicals, the David Alinsky course subject, taught by a young visiting professor at the University of Chicago, we came to know as President Obama. One of Alinky’s tactics was accusing your enemy of doing exactly what “it is” you are doing.
Combine the intimidation and violence of the Left with the absurd “Cancel” and “Woke” cultures, and the subsequent economic collapse that’s coming, and you won’t recognize our country in a year.
