  •  Yes, it is true Hitler was a great speaker (0+ / 0-)

    So was Alcibiades

    An old friend of mine said Mussolini was a good speaker too.  

    The trouble with wonderful speakers is that they can convince you of things that are not true and that it is good to do things that are horribly bad for you and your country and your world.

    Of course they can convince you to do good things that you might not otherwise.

    But they are definitely a risk and a coin flip.

    No wonder I have a deep distrust of fine speakers and always read their speeches before making up my mind about the truth of what they say.
