A Quote by Adolf Hitler on propaganda, lies, manipulation, popularity, comprehension, and intelligence

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.

A Quote by Kenneth Smith on philosophy, politics, illusions, lies, deceit, credulity, humans, modernity, gullibility, deception, civilization, domination, slaves, freedom, self-determination, and self-delusion

Modernity and most of all bourgeois-banausic "individualist" ideologues cannot begin to fathom the visceral lust for domination, whether in the form of demented idiotist-master-types or in the form of demented idiotist-slave-types.  If humans profoundly and rationally wanted to live free and think free, they would in every case have spun out for themselves forms of existence that both prudently and wisely foster an ethos of self-determination.  Moderns are self-delusive beings who cannot begin to face much less fathom their own primal need to be taken care of, to be dependent and directed and consoled and reassured etc.  They are inbred patsies standing in droves on the corner, waiting for the next conscription-bus to come along and give their aimless, dissolute and valueless existences some kind of transcendent meaning by putting them to work in imperialist wars for even more brutal domination over other peoples around the planet.  After the third or fourth war cut from the same veil of Maya, one gets weary beyond telling of man's insuperable mendacity to himself.  "Human nature" is forever a topic unable to be characterized without a word like "pseudophilic."  Most humans prove their vacuum of aristeia, of truth, conscience, rationality, or principles, by their truly dreadful and credulous yearning to be lied to.  We aren't just by accident a species gullible enough to believe what mass-campaigns of organized deception feed us; we were truly born hungry for sweet illusions and delusions.  And nowhere near enough humans succeed in emancipating themselves from the simian lust for narcosis, for soporific virtualities, to make civilization truly feasible.

A Quote by David Edwards on truth, lies, system, integrity, environment, global, human, power, profit, neurosis, paranoia, communism, extremism, and nonsense

The forbidden truth is that we are living by a set of lies which are necessary for short-term profit, at the expense of human physical and psychological life and global environmental integrity. We are living in a system where power ensures that the requirements of profit take priority over the requirements of living things-including the need to know that this is the case. Consequently our freedom extends as far as, and no further than, the satisfaction of these requirements, with all else being declared neurosis, paranoia, communism, extremism, the work of the devil, or Neptunian nonsense.

A Quote by Lloyd Williams on lies, deception, business, and politics

Lie to one person and you're a crook.
Lie to many people and you're an entrepeneur.
Lie to everyone and you're a politician.
