From Hitler in Mein Kampf:

All this was inspired by the principle–which is quite true in itself–that in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying.

For government, the minority, to rule the populace, the majority, the majority have to buy into the big lie. This is accomplished via a series of redistributive strategies: the first is the redistribution of state power: this is the big lie.

This is redistribution of the right of the state to expropriate, exploit, and redistribute non-owned and non-productively appropriated productive assets.

The State, does not remain, or become a closed shop, restricting entry into itself in a democracy, rather, it adopts an organisational structure that in principal at least, allows entry to one and all. Here, the various government positions grant equal and universal priveleges of participation and competition in the determination of the policies of the government state.

This of course is the big lie. The average participant, believing that everyone having the opportunity to enter government, believes that somehow “everyone” viz. government has his best interests at heart. That somehow, individuals entering into the abstract monster known as government, can control and mold government to their image, that they can retain their integrity, morality and ethical foundation within the apparatus known as government.

In the sameway that entrepreneurs are drawn to business, so are criminals drawn to government. The skills required to rise in power suiting the sociopath. Thus, the corruption exerted by power, need hardly even be present, the entrants, are already cognizant of the advantages bestowed through exploitation and expropriation.

The rise and progression of new entrants, can always easily be controlled through the various means and way of the rules of politics. Thus the power is invariably retained by the baser of its participants, while concurrently fooling the majority into supporting the minority.
