Question: How does a dimwit (i.e. “moron”) elevate to a position of supreme power?
Read the following: “The psyche of the great masses is not receptive to anything that is half-hearted and weak. Like the woman … who would rather bow to a strong man than dominate a weakling, the masses love a commander more than a petitioner and feel inwardly more satisfied by a doctrine tolerating no other beside itself, than by the granting of liberalistic freedom from which, as a rule, they can do little and are prone to feel that they have been abandoned…
“The receptivity of the great masses is very limited, their intelligence is small, but their power of forgetting is enormous. In consequence, all effective propaganda must be limited to a very few points and must harp on these in slogans until the last member of the public understands what you want him to understand by your slogan.”
Does this sound familiar (President Donald Trump)? These are quotes from “Mein Kampf” written by Adolf Hitler.
Never miss a local story.
