[The 1918] virus did go everywhere. The death toll is estimated at between 15 and 100 million people in a much smaller population. If you adjust for population, that would be equal to 220 to 440 million people today.
John M. Barry

[In 1918] they created a propaganda arm called the Committee for Public Information. The architect for that committee said that, “There is nothing in experience that tells us truth is superior to falsehood. All that matters is the inspirational value.
