Okay, despite what I said earlier here I go trying to nail
Jello to the wall.
Your answer is so silly it defies description. I am not
trying to control the world's thought process. Your assertion that
Dr. Josef Goebbels tried to do so is false, ridiculous, and
absurd. He was the propaganda minister of National Socialist
Germany, not of the whole world. Furthermore, if you think you can
silence me by invoking National Socialists you are mistaken.
I don't need advice on how to advance my arguments. It's
difficult for the truth to prevail when someone is waving his arms
around and shouting about 800,000 excess cancers and then being less
than forthcoming with any substantiation.
