"The great masses of the people will more easily fall victim to a big lie than to a small one." Adolf Hitler
 
"How fortunate for leaders that men do not think." Adolf Hitler
 
"But after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.” Hermann Goering
 
“Beware of the leader who bangs the drums of war in order to whip the citizenry into patriotic fervor, for patriotism is indeed a double-edged sword. It both emboldens the blood, just as it narrows the mind. And when the drums of war ...have reached a fever pitch and the blood boils with hate and the mind has closed, the leader will have no need in seizing the rights of the citizenry, [who] infused with fear and blinded by patriotism, will offer up all of their rights unto the leader and gladly so. How will I know? For this I have done. And I am Julius Caesar.”
 
"The great strength of the totalitarian state is that it forces those who fear it to imitate it." Adolf Hitler
 
"The death of one man is a tragedy. The death of millions is a statistic." Josef Stalin
 
"Armies for the preservation of peace do not exist; they exist only for the triumphant exertion of war." Adolf Hitler
