A Proper Gander At Propaganda

Truth Transcends Community

"Propaganda in the United States is spread by both government and media entities. Propaganda is information, ideas, or rumors deliberately spread widely to influence opinions. It's used in advertising, radio, newspaper, posters, books, television, and other media."  -  Propaganda in the United States - Wikipedia

Let's Get Existential: Psychotherapy as Fear Propaganda

The Age of Anxiety: Existential Anxiety Inspires Art

Explore your cognitive dissonance or existential crisis. Anxiety can help you grow your mental garden.

You are going to die and you know it. No other creature can claim knowledge of this knowledge.

Existential anxiety causes the sheep to seek the shepherd and the shepherd to seek the sheep, It is human nature.

No great conspiracy needed to explain what seems to be eternal human nature.

Fear of death leads to global culture of instaneous communication and passenger jet travel. Human beings always seem to believe the world or age is going to end. The end of the World is an old lie we seem to enjoy regurgitating into new Atomic Era, Big Banged, Black Holed, forms.

The Media Marketed "New Age" is Nothing but Rebranded Old Age Cult Thinking Mixed With Some Valid Timeless Wisdom

Religious propaganda is a liberal mixture of fact and fiction. Government is religion too, complete with saints, sinners, catechisms and commandments. Governments also have guns and court systems, so you don't have to wait to be punished. The system will judge your personal and individual adult behavior choices, not God. Ours is a Judeo-Christian based global culture that seems quite ironically ignorant of the Golden Rule. If  the laws we are supposed to obey were based on the principle of the golden rule, we'd all be better off. Religions tend to be the means of slavery more than being the means of freedom. If your religion works for you, by all means, ignore me

Government is a Religious Faith: You Can Trust Uncle Sam The Cartoon Character Man

The system benefits from adult personal behavior choices and money is the carrot and stick, and the dollar sign the most powerful holy symbol, that has been driving human behavior for centuries Commerce and business, social media and commercial television, is the religion of the 21st century.

Meta Musings

Your individual world might end, but will all of existence ever end? Did it ever really begin? Do you think these questions really appropriate for such a Metaphysical concept? Did you really have a beginning and are you certain you will have an end?

Do you know what you might really be?

The source of all can logically have no beginning or end and has to exist in a manner beyond our ability to imagine or express.  Or so it seems to me. If that does not seem logical to you, that's good too. Diversity of thought is a wonderful gift more of us might enjoy embracing.
