Orwell’s inspiration? • There is also an extensive and institutional use of propaganda; again, this was found in the totalitarian regimes of Hitler and Stalin. Orwell may have drawn inspiration from the Nazis; compare the following quotes to how propaganda is used in Nineteen Eighty-Four: http://www.netcharles.com/orwell/articles/1984-background-info.htm
— Adolf Hitler, in his 1925 book Mein Kampf. • * "The broad mass of the nation ... will more easily fall victim to a big lie than to a small one."
— Nazi Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels. • * "If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it."
--Nazi Reich Marshal Hermann Göring during the Nuremberg Trials. • * "Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. 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 in any country."
