The reason for the masks
January 31st, 2021 by Ken Hagler

In my study of com­mu­nist soci­eties, I came to the con­clu­sion that the pur­pose of com­mu­nist pro­pa­gan­da was not to per­suade or con­vince, not to inform, but to humil­i­ate; and there­fore, the less it cor­re­spond­ed to real­i­ty the bet­ter. When peo­ple are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvi­ous lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies them­selves, they lose once and for all their sense of pro­bity. To assent to obvi­ous lies is in some small way to become evil one­self. One’s stand­ing to resist any­thing is thus erod­ed, and even destroyed. A soci­ety of emas­cu­lat­ed liars is easy to control.

Theodore Dal­rym­ple
