Politics, Blame, and Conspiracy

"The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed by menacing it with and endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.  Criminals, immigrants, certain states, all used to conceal the failure of the system to look after its people."

"The central belief of every moron is that he is the victim of a mysterious conspiracy against his common rights and true deserts... [He] ascribes all his failures to get on in the world, all his congenital incapacity and danmfoolishness, to the machinations of werewolves assembled in Wall Street, or some other such den of infamy."

H.L. Mencken

"The art of all truly great leaders consists among other things primarily in not dividing the attention of a people, but in concentrating it on a great foe."

Adolph Hitler
