Quotes of the Morning

“If you've retired, you don't have anything to worry about — third time I've said that. I'll probably say it three more times. See, in my line of work you got to keep repeating things over and over and over again for the truth to sink in, to kind of catapult the propaganda.”
-George ‘Dubya’ Bush, May 25, 2005

“Wow.. I’m not sure that he meant to do it, but I think he just called what he was saying ‘propaganda’. I thought only people like the cold-war Russians supposedly used propaganda against their own people. Well, live and learn (hopefully).”

"We have made the Reich by propaganda."
-Joseph Goebbels

"Propaganda must not serve the truth, especially insofar as it might bring out something favorable for the opponent."
-Adolf Hitler (1889-1945)

"Propaganda is to a democracy what the bludgeon is to a totalitarian state."
-Noam Chomsky

"Today the world is the victim of propaganda because people are not intellectually competent. More than anything the United States needs effective citizens competent to do their own thinking."
-Dr. William Mather Lewis

"Laws just or unjust may govern men's actions. Tyrannies may restrain or regulate their words. The machinery of propaganda may pack their minds with falsehood and deny them truth for many generations of time. But the soul of man thus held in trance or frozen in a long night can be awakened by a spark coming from God knows where and in a moment the whole structure of lies and oppression is on trial for its life."
-Winston Churchill
