Information must not just be delivered but also absorbed. Whatever is delivered to us is not really information until it is processed through the filter of our consciousness.
1. The celebrated package of words
Had anyone noticed how our illustrious media agrees on a specific set of words when they describe movements. When Tea- Party was running amok the media described them as 'angry, fed up, organized, energetic, politically savvy, powerful, all-inclusive, worth of being treated seriously' etc.etc. Current Occupy movement is characterized as 'disorderly, filthy,scattered, irrational, having no leadership, misdirected' etc. All- in-all our media is afraid as Hell to say anything positive about our own children. And of course, no compassion whatsoever.
2. Funny cults
Recently some pastor called the Mormon religion a cult. Of course, J. Huntsman immediately retorted and all out media went up in arms. The funny truth here is that not only pastor was right- Mormon religion is a cult (sorry, folks, in any other rational society if someone claims Jesus and/or angels visiting him in the woods, exorcism is in order) but the whole US evangelical Christianity is a cult because the way Jesus is treated by them can only be called a blasphemy.
3. The way we fight
It is morbidly funny to watch the Demparty pretending to fight for the people while a) not mentioning wars; b) not mentioning health care law; c) not mentioning poverty; d) not mentioning regulations and e) always saying that ' we are like GOP but better.'
4. The way we deceive
It is also morbidly funny to watch the GOP trying desperately to show that they are really a party, that they stay for something, that they have ideology, etc. The more they try to do that to less sense they infer because their only message is, 'buy me, buy me, buy me'. They can't help it.
5.Rapists on the prowl
Oh yes, Washington Post reported something horrible! Afghan security forces torture people! Of course, it is not our fault; our media is so appaled! Pundits, one after another talk about 'Our men and women dying while our allies in Afghanistan are unreliable and corrupt.' Oh yes! What happens to the man who rapes a woman and then he is told that it was not his fault at all, that she was a prostitute anyway, that she deserved it, that she was dirty and he just was there to clean her up? He becomes a serial rapist. WE invaded Afghanistan. WE killed their people. WE still are killing their people. WE imposed their current government. WE imposed torture. WE are plundering and raping. And here our media transforms us into serial rapists telling us that it is not our fault and that we are the good guys and that the raped one has to clean herself and get tidy.
6. 'I did not do it' government
I have never seen a government like ours before. Its main message is 'I did not do it and I am not doing it and I will not do it'. It is a government of a defensive denial. It denies any plans to use tax money. It denies any plans to regulate industry. It denies that it likes its own laws. It denies any obligations towards people. It denies any consistent economic policy. It denies its own role. It is a government of malicious eunuchs if I ever saw ones. This government denies the decision- making process. It denies its own existence.
7. Howling by proxy
According to some state laws now we have a man-hunt open season on illegal immigrants. Anyone who helps them is in trouble too. Of course, media just presents it as a pure states' issue. Just like it was before the Civil War. The actual issue that the man-hunt had become an overall populus occupation in which everyone has to participate is avoided in the media at any cost. What a compassion! We like to hunt people but we love them anyway. That's our nature, right? This is a Halloween month and if there is a place where people go to the Church by day and become werewolves by night-this is the place, ours.
