With C-51 stream rolling over the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and about to smash thru the United Declaration of Human Rights like Kool-Aid man, I took to Facebook to see how Canadians are taking it.
Where have I heard that before … Oh right.
“You have nothing to fear, If you have nothing to hide” Joseph Goebbels, Minister of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda 1933-1945 under Adolf Hitler
“An original source for the quote comes from a premise presented in the book written by Franz Kafka’s, The Trial. It was turned into a play many times since and in one of those play, unknown as to which one, the phrase was stated as “you have nothing to fear if you have nothing to hide” being a statement made by the prosecutor.
It is believed that Joseph Goebbels picked up the phrase from that play and used it skillfully numerous times in many of his local speeches. I have researched it and found that he made several such speeches and one of them occurred in the beginning of the Nazi propaganda efforts to root out the Jews within Germany, “admit you are Jewish and we will take care of you” was another such quote used in the propaganda.”
I’ve got a lot more to say on this. When I do publish an article on it, You’ll be able to find it here as well.
