Philosophy Matters - Happy Birthday Hannah Arendt ! | Facebook

Before mass leaders seize the power to fit reality to their lies, their propaganda is marked by its extreme contempt for facts as such, for in their opinion fact depends entirely on the power of man who can fabricate it.~ Hannah Arendt,* The Origins of Totalitarianism When a majority of the populace Believes the propaganda Of the ruling elite And refuses to believe the truth Even though they can see it With their own eyes And hear it With their own ears They have reached Herd Immunity! Hannah Arendt, 1906-1975, was a political philosopher, author, and Holocaust survivor. Her contributions continue to influence political theorists today.
