Congrats to last week...yeah, that was a somewhat easy one. Again, that's what I thought of those before and got no response. This week is going away from the pop culture and to something along more serious lines. I'll let you know it was from the first half of the last century and was said by a western European. If no one guesses, I'll come back with more hints.

The broad mass of a nation…will more easily fall victim to a big lie than to a small one

(This is the translation. Giving it in the original language might give you too much help!)

I was going to say George Orwell, but not if it needs to be translated... I'm stumped!

OK, Co has the right country so you can think on that. Oooh, this is great having a little competition here!

Huh. I was going to think it was Russian, but that's Eastern European, right? So, Germany? Could be a philospher or a politician. Could be a good guy or a bad guy. Could be Hitler or Einstein. Huh. *thinks*

You have the right country. I won't say anymore. Hm, was the name in your list?

Hey, be fair. If I got it you have to give it to me. :P
Or I'll punch you and tell mom you started it.

OK, I won't give it to you but I will let you know that you do know it. What's your first thought? Your immediate response?

Yeah! You got it! Now was that so bad?

I got it two answers ago! Couldn't you have just said, yeah, Hitler, you're right? *shakes head* You give someone a little power, and it goes straight to their head.

I was watching a little bit of Blackadder the other night, it was very funny.

You said it could be. You didn't sound very decided. If it irks you so much, next time you give me a list, I'll pick it out for you. No more than 3, mind
