Propaganda – Micro & Macro

LoneRed1020206

We’re all indoctrinated from birth with the conventional wisdom of the prevailing order.

America, for example, claims to have won a war of independence to establish freedom and democracy for all. The ”all” did not include woman, blacks or the natives of the country. About 35% of the people were gathered under the umbrella of democracy.

That was 240 years ago. Now, everyone is allowed to vote for someone from the 1% to boss over a congress of millionaires administering the decisions of the billionaires (the 6% of 1% of 1% of the 1%ers). This ”democratic” arrangement channels the wealth and power away from the great majority of the people into the hands of an itsy-bitsy teeny-tiny minority.
Democracy!

It should also be noted that in order to develop this ”democracy” from 35% to a core within the 1% tens of millions of people had to be killed and are still being killed all over the world.
Democracy!

Another perspective:

Show this marching band of North Korean woman to an American. Like Pavlov’s dog they will bark, ”Propaganda!”
Ask them why it is any more propaganda than a picture of American cheerleaders and they will undoubtedly spout all kinds of reasons based on what they’ve been told about North Korea by the people who regard North Korea as their worst enemy. Regardless of what North Korea is or isn’t, why would anyone judge it based on the opinions of their worst enemy? An enemy BTW who is strongly money-oriented and consequently in direct opposition to North Korea’s people-oriented (Juche) philosophy.

While each country claims that the other is dangerously aggressive, only one has military bases all over the world and has bombed and killed (and is bombing and killing) people in other countries.

It would take someone who has been indoctrinated since birth to believe only one side of an argument without hearing the other side. But we don’t need to hear the other side because we are living in a democracy, aren’t we?
