I'm not entirely sure what his reasoning is here. It may be something that is lost in translation. I understand that he thinks that a big, perhaps outrages lie, maybe easier to convince the masses. I'm just unsure about his reasoning and why. Any chance you can comment?

There is nothing new in a government lying to their people to start a war. Indeed because most people prefer living in peace to bloody and horrific death in war, any government that desires to initiate a war usually lies to their people to create the illusion that support for the war is the only possible choice they can make.

Hitler used this principle of lying to his own people to initiate an invasion. He told the people of Germany that Poland had attacked first and staged fake attacks against German targets. The Germans, convinced they were being threatened, followed Hitler into Poland and into World War 2.
