Purpose of propaganda

Theodore Dalrymple on the purposes of lies in totalitarian societies:
In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, nor to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is to co-operate with evil, and in some small way to become evil oneself. One's standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control.
We are at war with a depraved enemy, but we cannot be allowed to assert our moral superiority even to head-choppers, rapists, slavers and immolators. Thus the priority of Barack ("Hey, how 'bout those Crusades?") Obama has been to undermine our sense of probity, and make us not merely equivalent to but worse than our enemies. That was the purpose of this last week of Official Lies.

War Is Peace – Cold Is Hot

War Is Peace – Cold Is Hot

“War is Peace;
Freedom is Slavery;
Ignorance is Strength;”
– George Orwell, 1984
the three slogans of the English Socialist Party (“INGSOC” for short) of Oceania. The goal of the INGSOC is to achieve total control over the people and, more importantly, over their minds.
And now they have added to the list. Cold is hot.
global temperatures were above average for the month of January ……climate change may lead to more extreme weather conditions, such as this frigid winter“, he added.

Great Lakes Ice Up 400% Since 1995

There is four times as much ice on the Great Lakes as there was 20 years ago. Experts say that global warming is to blame.
The EPA wants to ban fossil fuels, because they are making lake ice disappear in the US

Ministry of Weather Truth

Tony Heller keeps coming up with great stuff:

Ministry Of Truth Hard At Work

NCDC has been tasked by the White House to produce propaganda to help push Barack Obama’s global warming agenda through. This includes a recent press release that the current winter is one of the hottest on record in the US.
Never mind that the Great Lakes are nearing a record high for ice coverage.
Never mind that the US is facing record cold over for the remainder of the winter.

What is important is that NCDC tampers with the data in a spectacular hockey stick, to make a frozen country appear to be warming out of control.

Note that they do maximum data tampering at the actual hottest year of 1934.
