Channeling Goebbels

Elsewhere I made a recent reference to the truism, "If you tell a big enough lie often enough, it will be believed." But I couldn't initially track down the source.

Today, I found it. And no, this is not an instance of Godwin's law.

The source is Joseph Goebbels, the Nazi propagandist. I guess he knew.

I watched an interesting documentary on Goebbels a while back, based upon his dairies, and of course old video. "The Goebbels Experiment" (2005). If you have Netflix, you can "Watch it Instantly" on your computer.

Watch the preview.
