The Wire - Season Five Opening Scene

Classic scene from The Wire emphasizing the fact that "The bigger the lie, the more they believe". Goebbels was dead on.


“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”  - Joseph Goebbels

so I’ve had a crush on my colleague for a few years, I finally stepped up and invited my crush out at work. Thanks to all the knowledge from you about dating and economics, I finally got the courage and asked her out. As soon as I got the chance at our lunchbreak, I said to her: "The way you support free markets, stimulates growth in my private sector" She called me a freak and filed a complaint to HR, thanks
