I heard it was Hitler
that said, "Tell a person a lie enough times and they will believe it." I'm not encouraging drug use (I don't use 'em, I swear), but The War on Drugs
is the same kind of campaign of demonizing people, but instead of going after Jews
for ruining the economy, Orrin Hatch
et. al, go after people who like to get stoned
by portraying them as mindless, godless, sex-crazy, masturbating zombies
. And the idea of drilling these ideas into everybody's heads is the same: tell them enough and they will believe it.
And you know what? It works.
