Throughout history, bad leaders have used the big lie technique to deceive people. It is important to know how and why it works because it is used today in the field of health and in many other areas, as well.
WHY THE BIG LIE OFTEN SUCCEEDS
The basis for the big lie technique is interesting. It takes advantage of a very common belief among most people that telling small lies is okay, but that no one would tell big lies.
Essentially, many people tell little lies about why they cannot go out with friends, or why they are late for appointments, or other rather low-level matters. People even sometimes joke about commonly told lies, such as the student who tells his teacher that “the dog ate my homework”.
At the same time, very few people tell enormous lies. This is really a psychopathology that is much less common. People who tell big lies are called pathological liars, and are usually shunned.
Rogue political and health leaders take advantage of the above facts. They tell big and often outrageous lies because they know people will not challenge them much because most people believe that no one would tell such huge lies.
Political examples. Adolf Hitler was famous for telling big lies. One of the biggest lies he told his people was that his nation’s problems were the fault of the Jewish people. However, he told many other big lies, and understood how to use the big lie principle very well.
Today, political leaders do similar things. Many blame their nation’s problems on the rich people, for example, or on a previous administration.
Another big lie today is that we are “killing” the earth with carbon dioxide and that climate change will destroy civilization unless we get rid of cows, airplanes, fossil fuels and other things. It is a huge lie that is being taught to the children in public schools and to everyone through the mass media. It is just a ploy to reduce freedom and destroy industrialized nations such as the United States. It is repeated so often in the media that many have come to believe it. Those what don’t believe it are called ‘denyers’ and some people want to lock them up or kill them, so hysterical have they become.
In the health care, some politicians know that government control of health care, welfare, education are corrupt and inefficient, but they still tell the people that they are best for the nation. Their real motives are to increase their own power over the people and make people poorer and more dependent upon government. However, they would never say this because it would give away their strategy.
Health lies. Today, big lies abound in the health field. Many of these are explained in other articles on this website. A few of the most important ones are:
1. That vaccines are a wonderful idea. The facts are quite clear, but our doctors and public health authorities repeat the lie. To read more about this lie, please read Vaccination – A Medical Abomination on this website.
4. That fluoridation of the drinking water is an excellent idea. For more on this topic, please read Water Fluoridation on this site.
6. That coffee enemas are dangerous or harmful. For more on this subject, please read Coffee Enemas on this site.
8. That one can get all of one’s vitamins and minerals from food alone, without a need for supplements. For more on this, please read Why Take Food Supplements on this site.
9. That vegetarian diets are good. For more on this, please read Vegetarian Diets on this site.
10. That chiropractic is not very helpful or dangerous. For more on this topic, please read Chiropractic on this site.
These are just a few examples of lies that are perpetrated by some public health authorities, some doctors, and others. They confuse the public because most people just cannot believe that our health authorities would lie to us about matters of such importance. As a result, they get away with the lies in many cases.
Social and sexual lies. A common example occurs when a man wants to have sex with a woman, so he tells her “I love you so much.” This is not the truth. However, many women cannot believe anyone would lie about such an important subject, so they believe the man. Many women learn about this lie the hard way.
THE IMPORTANCE OF THIS ARTICLE
Please know that unscrupulous leaders do tell big lies. Sadly, they often know exactly what they are doing. They tell big lies because they know people will not challenge them as much as if they tell little lies, like most people do.
Do not believe a leader just because you think to yourself, “He or she could not possibly be lying about such an important matter because no one would do such a thing”. That is the key to overcoming the tendency to believe the big lies.
