"And With Such A People..."

“If everyone always lies to you, the consequence is not that you believe the lies, but that no one believes anything at all anymore - and rightly so, because lies, by their very nature, have to be changed, to be ‘re-lied,’ so to speak. A lying government pursuing shifting goals has to ceaselessly rewrite its own history, leaving people not only dispossessed of their ability to act, but also of their capacity to think and to judge, and with such a people you can then do what you please.”
Hannah Arendt
