Who Said This?

Who said this?

Joseph Goebbels? Dick Cheney? Roger Ailes? Rupert Murdoch? Or Karl Rove?

“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.”

"The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly - it must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over.”

“Intellectual activity is a danger to the building of character.”

“Think of the press as a great keyboard on which the government can play.”

“Conservatives are not necessarily stupid, but most stupid people are conservatives.”

(Fooled you! The last one is John Stuart Mill. The rest are Goebbels, but sound much more modern-day Republican, don't they?).
