Unveiling the Manipulative Tactics of Leaders: Hermann Goering's Startling Revelation

In a thought-provoking image that has recently surfaced, a historical black and white photograph captures the essence of an ominous courtroom setting. The focal point of the image is a man, donning a military uniform, seated on a wood-paneled dais or witness stand. With a serious and grave expression, his piercing gaze seems fixed on something beyond our view.

Adjacent to the man, partially cropped out, another individual in a military uniform can be seen, albeit only the sleeve and the edge of the uniform are visible. Positioned in front of the seated man, a microphone on a stand indicates that he is likely giving a statement or testimony of great importance.

However, what truly makes this image intriguing are the two blocks of text superimposed onto it. These quotes offer a chilling insight into the manipulative tactics employed by leaders throughout history. The first quote reads, "‘Naturally, the common people don't want war; neither in Russia nor in England nor in America, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy.’" This thought-provoking statement forces us to contemplate the role of leaders and their influence on the masses.

The second quote further reinforces this notion: "‘All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.’" These words, attributed to Hermann Goering himself, shed light on the tactics employed to sway public opinion and create a sense of urgency or fear.

Adding another layer of historical significance, the bottom of the image reveals the words "Hermann Goering at the Nuremberg Trials 1946." This acknowledgment reminds us of the context in which these quotes were spoken, and the gravity of the events that unfolded during the aftermath of World War II.

As we reflect on this image and its accompanying quotes, it becomes evident that the lessons from history are crucial. Understanding the manipulative strategies employed by leaders can help us navigate through the complexities of politics and ensure that we, as a society, remain vigilant against any attempts to exploit our fears or incite division.

This captivating image provides us with a glimpse into the past, shedding light on the methods used by leaders to shape public opinion. It serves as a reminder that critical thinking, historical awareness, and an unwavering commitment to truth are necessary to safeguard the values we hold dear. Let us learn from history and strive to create a future that is free from manipulation and division.

Yes, some people were making notes and writing a manual, rather than a precautionary tale

Kind of like an abusive and manipulative relationship. It's difficult to see the signs until you've been in one and realised. Politics is a projection of the leaders nature. That's why it's so dangerous to give power to one individual.

This Russian problem is not going to go away. Its sad that we are not doing more to help the only buffer we have between us and the russian mafia run by putler.

And you can say what you like about the Germans but they are NOT hiding their history.

And on the other side ruSSia is working hard to support the "pacifists" and "peace activists" in Germany to oppose the support of UA. The Greens are the only party opposing russia 100% and they are heavily attact by trolls, eg as war mongerer.

Reminds me of what the US did in Iraq and Afghanistan. They insisted that we had to stop the evil terrorists and accused anyone against the war(s) of wanting the terrorists to win. Ultimately, the only people that won were the CEOs of the companies supplying the military.

Yeah war is when ordinary people die for some higher peoples greed. The times leaders are part of the war is over for a long time.

That's why Putin says NATO is attacking Russia. And why NATO says Russia is preparing to attack NATO. And f***wit Lukashenka this week discussed trying to take the Suwałki Gap with an army General openly on Belarusian TV this week.
