The First Trait of the Corruption of Manners is the Banishment of Truth
By Alexis Curvers
The great secret, the great work, the great art of subversion in all its forms is to speak vehemently in one direction and to act all the more energetically in the opposite direction. The people believe what they hear and they do not understand what they see. At least it seems as if it were decided by indoctrination and terror. So the diet works perfectly when everyone pretends: those who command and those who obey ...
Doctors who preach the yes and the not together. They know very well that the no will be the only follow-up in the event that their speech prepares, instead the yes will remain a dead letter. Their yes and their no are the right wing and the left wing of an army that a strategist deploys on the ground to hide his designs by a false symmetry: the right wing has the mission to be killed on the spot, For the sole purpose of covering and favoring the maneuver which the left wing reserves to execute without striking a blow.
It is well to remember that one is almost always betrayed, and that one is always betrayed only by his chiefs.
The great art of subversion, and the first condition of its victory, is to take as agents of execution the legitimate representatives of the authority it seeks to destroy. That is why it begins by maintaining or bringing to power two kinds of men: either weak men whom it knows incapable of resisting it, or strong men whom it knows to be devoted to it, and only capable of organizing The disorder which in their turn will annihilate them.
The only thing that astonishes me is that the tumble has been so rapid, and yet drags on.
Is it not very useful, if there is still time, to undeceive the undecided, the ignorant and the gullible over the real purposes and means of the Revolution which is going to engulf them? No, for there are two things: either they have not yet seen what is already dying, or they prefer not to see it; And in both cases they will not let themselves be enlightened, let alone convert. The most striking proofs will not awaken them. Blind or blind, this flock will always be settled on the strongest party.
A thousand times denounced, and by its own acts, the Revolution as for it, will never admit for what it is. It matters little to her that she is believed when she protests her good intentions. It only matters to her that one pretends to believe her, by an obedience which she obtains without difficulty, pretending to be herself the strongest party.
Blaise Pascal (June 19, 1623 - August 19, 1662) Doctor Goebbels was right: the biggest lies and the most worn-out tricks are always the best. They prevail today with a renewal of success ...
Truth maddened the partisans of error and falsehood, while error and falsehood generally leave those who know the truth very calm.
The truth is unlucky. She lets herself be attacked by unscrupulous people, and is willing to be defended by people without courage. She had scarcely left the well she had received from her enemies, and ordered her to go down again, and her friends to go and get dressed.
Pascal: "To speak the truth is useful to those to whom it is said, but disadvantageous to those who say it, because they make themselves hated. Whence it follows, that to say falsehood is disadvantageous to those to whom it is said, but useful to those who say it, because they make themselves loved.
The first trait of the corruption of manners is the banishment of truth.
