TELLING THE TRUTH

FOR ZANG TUMB TUUM…

PROPAGANDA

“the discovery of truth is prevented most effectively, not by the false appearance things present and which mislead into error, not directly by weakness of the reasoning powers, but by preconceived opinion, by prejudice, which as a pseudo a priori stands in the path of truth and is then like a contrary wind driving a ship away from land, so that sail and rudder labour in vain.”[1]

dance and crime : the nine lives of dr. mabuse, presented, prevented and presumed by propaganda.

“every general truth is related to specific truths as gold is to silver, inasmuch as it can be converted into a considerable number of specific truths which follow from it in the same way as a gold coin can be converted into small change.”[2]
