A major insight into human behavior from pre-internet era studies of communication is the tendency of people not to speak up about policy issues in public—or among their family, friends, and work colleagues—when they believe their own point of view is not widely shared. This tendency is called the “spiral of silence.

I think that it's not only important, but interesting, to note that Elisabeth Noelle-Neumann, creator of the Spiral of Silence Theory, actually worked for Nazi newspapers during WWII. In 1940 she worked for Nazi newspaper "Das Reich," under Joseph Goebbels, later working for "Frankfurter Zeitung." Noelle-Neumann claims she worked from the inside, but her direct association with Spiral of Silence is intriguing.

No, no, no and yet they talk trash about this and that anyway.... They think they are keeping you out but they are only keeping themselves in a prison.... Its a game of brainwashing the fell for and it robs them more of souls than of freedoms. So shut that door, I wasn't coming in anyway.
