Do Their Bidding?

This is allegedly a quote by Hermann Wilhelm Göring, a German politician, military leader, and leading member of the Nazi Party which reveals the sinister underbelly of evil.

“Naturally, the common people don’t want war. But after all, it is the leaders of a country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag people along whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship.

Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. This is easy.

All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in every country.”  – Herrmann Goering, Hitler’s Reich-Marshall at the Nuremberg trials after WWII.
