"The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal #enemy
of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth becomes the greatest enemy of #TheState
-- Dr. Joseph M. Goebbels

Australia-wide, homicides are up 32 percentAustralia-wide, assaults are up 8.6 percent Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 44 percent (yes, 44 percent)!In the state of Victoria alone, homicides with firearms are now up 300 percent. Note that while the law-abiding #citizens
