“On top of this physical misery, the Nazi control system inflicted upon us another plague, which was even more insidious because it corroded the mind. It consisted of a blackout of truth, and a surfeit of insulting propaganda. To eliminate any interference with the outpouring of official lies, the occupation regime shut down all Czech universities, gagged the press, radio, movies and theater, and outlawed all prewar Czech books about democracy or the historic Czech struggle against the Germans.” — Milan Kubik, a Newsweek journalist, about the Nazi regime in Czechoslovakia in the 1940s
The nazis could have learned a few things from modern america. No need to shut down universities or the media. They’re already onboard with the program.
