    Not sure if this is the right place to post, i guess education is the closest think to languages. Anyway...

    Ive been hopelessly trying to find the LATIN (next best direct quote, since greek was Aris native tongue?) translation of Aristotles quote "Evil draws/brings men together" internet failed me >.<

    Also, does somebody here know where the quote "Nothing binds men together like a common enemy" comes from?

    Doing an assignment on Nazi propaganda and i want to use that quote.

    The US beat the Nazi's to it, as can be seen in Edward Bernays Crystallizing Public Opinion (1923) and Propaganda (1928) as well as Wilson's Committee on Public Information to jump on the WW1 bandwagon. Probably inspired the Nazis. Though less subtle and loosing by several years, it was a nice effort on the part of the Nazi's in the Propaganda Olympics. :wink:

    Interesting Quote about comming together though, the enemy can be a natural disaster or a common challenge, I could not find a source for it. Cheers

    Well, my Latin is still not very good, but, as I couldn't find a proper translation, I tried it myself, so perhaps it could be something like this:

    Malum populorum congregat

    I do not know if this is correct, but I thought it may certainly help you with searching the original text.... However, you did intrigue me now and I will ask my teacher about it
