I agree with Chris on these issues.    (02)

I'd also like to mention that there have been some politicians
in a position of power who claimed that you can make something
true just by repeating it often enough.    (03)

That politician and his friends were influenced by a prominent
academic who claimed that it is OK to lie to people if it's
for a good cause.  Unfortunately, everybody believes that their
cause is good.    (04)

That person's political beliefs were diametrically opposed
to Lenin's, but that principle is the foundation for the
disastrous policies and practices of Lenin and Hitler.    (05)
