The primary rules of the Big Lie are as follows:
#1 Never allow the public to cool off;
#2 Never admit a fault or wrong;
#3 Never concede that there may be some good in your enemy;
#4 Never leave room for alternatives;
#5 Never accept blame;
#6 Concentrate on one enemy at a time and blame him for everything including false statements or losses on his part.
#7 People will believe a big lie sooner than a little one, And if you repeat it frequently enough people will sooner or later believe it as the real thing!
BOD seem to think they can just use Social-Engineering techniques on the Player/Reader base and no one is smart enough to recognize the strategy they are using!
