He is a victim of what I have called “herd-poisoning.” Like alcohol, herd-poison is an active, extraverted drug. Their critical habit of mind makes them resistant to the kind of propaВ­ganda that works so well on the majority. In a word, a man in a crowd behaves as though he had swallowed a large dose of some powerful intoxicant. He was able, in his own words, “to follow the lead of the great mass in such a way that from the living emotion of his hearers the apt word which he needed would be suggested to him and in its turn this would go straight to the heart of his hearers.” Otto Strasser called him “a loud-speaker, proВ­claiming the most secret desires, the least admissible instincts, the sufferings and personal revolts of a whole nation.” Twenty years before Madison Avenue embarked upon “Motivational Research,” Hitler was systematically exploring and exploiting the secret fears and hopes, the cravings, anxieties and frustraВ­tions of the German masses. During his long career as an agitator, Hitler had studied the effects of herd-poison and had learned how to exploit them for his own purposes. This detection is prevented however if another enemy unit is present in the unit’s normal Zone-of-Control. And it is by appealing to the same hidden forces — and to others too dangerous for Madison Avenue to meddle with — that Hitler inВ­duced the German masses to buy themselves a Fuehrer, an insane philosophy and the Second World War. To make them more masslike, more homogeneously subhuman, he assembled them, by the thousands and the tens of thousands, in vast halls and arenas, where individuals could lose their personal identity, even their eleВ­mentary humanity, and be merged with the crowd. “The driving force which has brought about the most tremendous revolutions on this earth has never been a body of scientific teaching which has gained power over the masses, but always a devotion which has inspired them, and often a kind of hysteria which has urged them into action. Their suggestibility is increased to the point where they cease to have any judgment or will of their own. A man or woman makes direct contact with society in two ways: as a member of some familial, professional or religious group, or as a member of a crowd. They become very exВ­citable, they lose all sense of individual or collective responsibility, they are subject to sudden accesses of rage, enthusiasm and panic. Groups are capable of being as moral and intelligent as the individuals who form them; a crowd is chaotic, has no purpose of its own and is capable of anything except intelligent action and realistic thinking. It is by manipulating “hidden forces” that the advertising experts induce us to buy their wares — a toothpaste, a brand of cigaВ­rettes, a political candidate. It is in these drives and feelings that “the roots of their positive as well as their negative attitudes are implanted.” To be successВ­ful a propagandist must learn how to manipulate these instincts and emotions. When unit has deployed Skirmishers, then any unit in the three hexes beyond its Zone-of-Control is displayed as an Unknown unit. An additional movement cost is added to movement into the Zone-of-Control of an enemy unit that has deployed Skirmishers. Note: under the Alternate Fixed Unit Release Optional Rule, the unit does not have to be spotted to be released. The crowd-intoxicated individual escapes from responsibility, inВ­telligence and morality into a kind of frantic, animal mindlessness. While Uncrewed, the battery cannot fire or move (Exception: when the optional Artillery Capture rule is in effect, uncrewed artillery can be fired at half value when other units, friendly or enemy, are stacked in the same hex). When an artillery unit is fired upon by small arms fire, there is a probability that the artillery unit will become Uncrewed . Under the Mounted Cavalry Skirmishers Optional Rule, all mounted cavalry has the ability to detect enemy units like infantry skirmishers can without having to explicitly deploy skirmishers and without having to pay the additional movement costs associated with skirmishers. All formation changes to Infantry, Artillery, Cavalry, and Leaders is performed using the Change Formation function of the Toolbar. With them one cannot make history; they cannot be used as elements composing a community.” Intellectuals are the kind of people who demand eviВ­dence and are shocked by logical inconsistencies and fallacies. While the healthy common folk instincВ­tively close their ranks to form a community of the people” (under a Leader, it goes without saying) “inВ­tellectuals run this way and that, like hens in a poulВ­try yard. define trench how deep is the marianas trench german trench trenches conditions trenches of wwi how deep is marianas trench army trenches where is the mariana trench trench definition wwi trench conditions life in the trenches video trench meaning disease in the trenches trench ditch marinas trench rats in trenches wwi trenches today lice in trenches food in the trenches definition of trench trenches definition diary of a soldier in the trenches trench cycle the life in the trenches used trench coat life on the western front trenches meaning what are trenches trench coat images marianas
