The Essence of Propaganda is Repetition

The Essence of Propaganda is Repetition

Advertisers will tell you that the essence of propaganda is repetition.

If you tell a small lie, people will see through it but if you tell a great big lie over and over again, people will believe it.

The government puts this to good use by promoting the myth over and over again that Britain is a low tax country while at the same time increasing most taxes relentlessly & cutting subsidies.

For example, Income Tax & NI account for 52% of government revenues and in the last budget he increased taxes significantly on dividend income [treating directors/entrepreneurs more like PAYE].

Then in a slight of hand, he reduces CGT which only accounts for 1% of revenues. The reason is simple: Government debt continues to increase at £300,000 per minute.

The more things change; the more they remain the same.
