Deceit and propaganda are inseparable. A community in which the leader and his followers come to terms through propaganda – whatever the merits of its content – is a community of lies. Truth itself becomes merely a means of enlisting support and is falsified in the very utterance. This is why genuine resistance knows no propaganda. Propaganda is misanthropic. It assumes that to say that policy ought to spring from mutual understanding is not a basic principle but conveniently empty phraseology.
