A Proper Gander At Propaganda

Truth Transcends Community

It's used in advertising, radio, newspaper, posters, books, television, and other media."  -  Propaganda in the United States - Wikipedia

A Silk Road Tangent: A Modern Mythic Yellow Journal Underdog

FYI: "The Dread Pirate Roberts/Silk Road" News story reads like scripted fiction to me. It looks like a soap operatic warning. The narrative is that he was running the Silk Road website from a laptop without a fixed location and permanent ip address which seems odd. There are other tabloid details that indicate this story is another unverifiable media hoax. The story is still valid (in a certain context) as it illustrates the power the state really does have over human imagination. Huge media covered trials would seem to have to be scripted theater that attempts to alter human behavior by providing impetus for crafting new laws. Governments not only rely on the criminal "justice" system, but they also rely on us policing each other and ourselves. Government really is mind control.
