Where we are [going]

All propaganda has to be popular and has to accommodate itself to the comprehension of the least intelligent of those whom it seeks to reach.
Demoralize the enemy from within by surprise, terror, sabotage, assassination. This is the war of the future.
By the skillful and sustained use of propaganda, one can make a people see even heaven as hell or an extremely wretched life as paradise.
As a Christian I have no duty to allow myself to be cheated, but I have the duty to be a fighter for truth and justice.
Generals think war should be waged like the tourneys of the Middle Ages. I have no use for knights; I need revolutionaries.
How fortunate for governments that the people they administer don't think.
I believe today that my conduct is in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator.
It is not truth that matters, but victory.
Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.
The broad masses of a population are more amenable to the appeal of rhetoric than to any other force.
The day of individual happiness has passed.
The art of leadership... consists in consolidating the attention of the people against a single adversary and taking care that nothing will split up that attention.
The great masses of the people will more easily fall victims to a big lie than to a small one.
The great strength of the totalitarian state is that it forces those who fear it to imitate it.
The victor will never be asked if he told the truth.
The very first essential for success is a perpetually constant and regular employment of violence.
Those who want to live, let them fight, and those who do not want to fight in this world of eternal struggle do not deserve to live.
Universal education is the most corroding and disintegrating poison that liberalism has ever invented for its own destruction.
The doom of a nation can be averted only by a storm of flowing passion, but only those who are passionate themselves can arouse passion in others.
-Adolf Hitler
