How Dutton and Molan justify the heinous

LNP

Delusion is defined in the Oxford Dictionary as:

‘An idiosyncratic belief or impression maintained despite being contradicted by reality or rational argument, typically as a symptom of mental disorder.’

 

The German Leadership tried to create just such an alternative reality as do Dutton and Molan

The Nazi leadership aimed to deceive the German population, the victims and the outside world regarding their genocidal policy toward Jews. What did ordinary Germans know about the persecution and mass murder of Jews? Despite the public broadcast and publication of general statements about the goal of eliminating “the Jews”, the regime practised a propaganda of deception by hiding specific details about the “Final Solution”, and press controls prevented Germans from reading statements by Allied and Soviet leaders condemning German crimes.

At the same time, positive stories were fabricated as part of the planned deception.
