How a few theories originate, turns as political current, lives and serve for a time and control the masses along with ruling power. Many psychic leaders with their massive sycophants, recreate them, genetically modify them and plant the poisonous weeds, groom them to rule, in their times.
India is, also in the same evil Spell, driven by the artifice fear, preachers of hate philosophy, grave diggers of ancient curse or crisis and use them as their current books of devils, implant of ghost chronicles, run lie factories.
A section of mesmerized or opiated masses, falls for, bogus rhetoric’s, religious fanaticisms, promises of glory of super power and even for an assurance of to-morrow’s meals. It will be unwise to brief more about a world class propaganda minister of Adolf Hitler Joseph Goebbels. Others are only plagiarist like the present Indian ruling class.
In his hate campaign against Jews he said, “Already today we begin to hear the cries of the desperate and seduced peoples throughout the world:
“The Jews are guilty! The Jews are guilty!”
Without pity or forgiveness, the blow will strike. The world enemy will fall, and Europe will have peace.”
He spearheaded the campaign against German Jews. The holocaust is an irascible blood mark of human sacrifice to European fascism.
He believed in his power of controlling the minds of Germans by his media. “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.”
He stated once, “You can’t change the masses. They will always be the same: dumb, gluttonous and forgetful.” His opinion about German mass is highly ridiculous. Yet, he was their Akashavani.
Berlin Radio, Das Reich, a weekly magazine run by him and a few Black and white video tapes or film roles kept Germans under his influence or spell. He made Germans to believe that Hitler’s army destroyed Leningrad and was winning the second world war.
When Soviet army tanker bombed the streets and shelled the army quarters at Berlin , German understood that Berlin fell. Goebbels tactics are well edited and spoken by none other than him. His quotations are holy books for fascists and semi- fascist around the world including his followers in India.
“It would not be impossible to prove with sufficient repetition and a psychological understanding of the people concerned that a square is in fact a circle. They are mere words, and words can be molded until they clothe ideas and disguise.”
“The point of a political speech is to persuade people of what we think right. I speak differently in the provinces than I do in Berlin, and when I speak in Bayreuth, I say different things than I say in the Pharus Hall.
That is a matter of practice, not of theory. We do not want to be a movement of a few straw brains, but rather a movement that can conquer the broad masses. Propaganda should be popular, not intellectually pleasing. It is not the task of propaganda to discover intellectual truths.”
However, is his vision being perfectly true. “We shall go down in history as the greatest statesmen of all time, or as the greatest criminals” He embraced the second part.
In 1950s Communism, before laying deep its political foot in USA, McCarthy, a Republican Senator turned to be voice of the corporates. A vociferous campaign against the alleged communist’s intrusion in the USA government was systematically carried out.
A false or unfound accusations or perversive attacks on several politicians and government officials caused an irreparable damage even in the matter decision making and cohesive operation of the governments. Charging treason, naming many public and intellectuals as soviet agents, calling some as foreign spies, planting suspicion, motives, had caused fire hate against socialistic and communist ideologies, amidst the public.
Without even studying, learning, what Communism voices, the average American added communism as one among many fear factors. This demean propaganda, hampered the government functioning, interstate relations, internal legal system and international relationship.
Especially when it is battery charged continuous TV and other media sponsored anarchism, cry against communism and socialism, caused a moral deterioration, roguishness and hooliganism.
Government found that his campaigns have become nuisance, anachronic and spreading poison among American people. He laid his hands on the military division and started accusing that many are pro-communist. Army commanders told, enough is enough. It was at the time, when the world divided and cold war is going on between US and Russian bloc.
He packed his theories, with incidents that had happened in some other era, morphed the pictures, rephrased incidents, spreading false tales. Planting fear and suspicion and reaping a gregarious political advantage was his prime motive. Corporates used him. Finally, McCarthy faced judicial trial in 1953 and his fortunes fell to dust. Many leaders exposed his antics. Yet Damage is done. He had created an indelible political antonyms and fear against the spectra of communism.
McCarthyism entered the Encyclopædia Britannica and he himself died in 1956 or 1957.
More right wing narcissist leaders, around the world, have captured the state with their promises and propaganda. More, will make us understand, how the people of these evil empires have liberated their democracy from the hands of tyranny of their rulers.
Indian narcissist rule do require a special research as the time has come for their fall.
