“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.  …

Propaganda must always be essentially simple and repetitious.

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.”

Joseph Goebbels, German Nazi “Minister of Propaganda and Public Enlightenment”

As became ever more clear since WWII but exponentially and globally so since the Covid narrative of 2020: if you tell such a lie on TV then you can be sure it will be absorbed and adopted by the passive moldable masses of current society.

Control the TV and you control the opinion of the masses.

Well, because TV is, more than any other media, exactly just that: “essentially simple and repititious”. The passive masses don’t just simply seem to accept it, they frequently even like or even want it. This kind of liking or wanting is unnaturally triggered by the TV (messages) itself, as is the liking or the want for potatoe-chips, hamburgers or cigarettes, through added chemicals that trigger this perceived want. It’s a vicious circle, as happens with all addictive substances or behaviours. And as happens with addictions, the victims (because they are victims) are not aware or worse they don’t even care. And this  also happens to the majority of the passive masses watching the TV.
