Hitting the nail on the head

Thanks to humboldthonnihumboldthonni for this quote:

"A tyrant must put on the appearance of uncommon devotion to religion. Subjects are less apprehensive of illegal treatment from a ruler whom they consider god-fearing and pious."

I thought about letting you all guess who said this, but then I thought that would be trivializing the impact these words have.

So, I'll just

let it sink in

for a

few beats

before

I

tell

you

it

was

Aristotle.

Yup, somehow every politician looks better with "God" on their side...
Too bad they don't have the morals or ethics that they preach...

Ah...a ruler who identifies with a bigger-than-life concept in order to progress their exclusionary agenda.

People called that "Propoganda" in the years leading up to World War II.

OOPS.....noooo..I didn't make that comparison whatsoever.

BAD MEER!!
