A Voice in the Wilderness

As nightfall does not come at once, neither does oppression. In both instances, there's a twilight where everything remains seemingly unchanged, and it is in such twilight that we must be aware of change in the air, however slight, lest we become unwitting victims of the darkness. -- William O. Douglas

Bush on Propaganda

"All propaganda has to be popular and has to adapt its spiritual level to the perception of the least intelligent of those towards whom it intends to direct itself."
Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf ("My Struggle"), Vol. I.B

President Bush made a telling remark this past week during one of his staged town hall meetings. Over the past several months, George Bush has conducted meetings with hand-selected supporters in towns across the United States. His intention is to bolster support for an unpopular Social Security reform initiative that he is pushing Congress for. Earlier this week, the President casually gave his take on propaganda. It sounded eerily reminiscent of Adolph Hitler's perspective. Compare the two statements and you can make the call:

"See, in my line of work you got to keep repeating things over and over and over again for the truth to sink in, to kind of catapult the propaganda."
President George W. Bush
Greece, N.Y., May 24, 2005
