I have a simple philosophy: Fill what's empty. Empty what's full. Scratch where it itches.

- Alice Roosevelt Longworth

I've read that she supposedly lost her faith when she was 15. I still wish I could have done it as quick as her.

Joan...yes, but with evidence.  When language becomes unhinged from reality (as with most religious blather), then things become true by virtue of repetition. Goebbels knew that - knew that most people were too lazy or docile to look for evidence - and this opens the door to all mnaner of linguistic mischief.

Joan, thank you for your comment and quote.  I agree, and I do.

Alan & Daniel, if "The truth is what most people believe.  And they believe that which is repeated most often" then that means we have to repeat what we believe as often as we can with as many voices as we can find.

Chris,

"Is it okay to reply with some smart alley remark?"

Sure!

I’m glad that girl died. They were a bunch of Communists out there protesting against somebody’s freedom of speech, so it doesn’t bother me that they got hurt at all.

Daniel, I was just going to post this Goebbels gem, which is still my all-time favorite quote on persuasion:

"The truth is what most people believe.  And they believe that which is repeated most often."

In this age of "alternate facts" and "fake news," it's as relevant as ever.

An economist is someone who knows a thousand ways to make love and doesn't have a girlfriend.
