A Proper Gander At Propaganda


"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

"A man without a government is like a fish without a bicycle.” Alvaro Koplovich

"The rise of modern print culture The printing press and the relatively wide availability of printed materials further undermine the importance of the 'local community' in ... Feudal societies based on face-to-face loyalties and oral oaths begin to give way to nation-states and to nationalism based on a shared printed language." Marshall McLuhan: Theoretical elaborations

"It's incredible." William Shatner


"early 15c., "unbelievable, surpassing belief as to what is possible," from Latin incredibilis "not to be believed, extraordinary," from in-"not" (see in- (1)) + credibilis "worthy of belief" (see credible). Used c. 1400 in a now-extinct sense of "unbelieving, incredulous." Related: Incredibly; incredibility."

Some Perspective: Incredible Distances & Fantastic Feats

Some half a century after the first airplane flight we could wait on a line to fly to Rome. Some half a century after the Apollo Moon landing hoax, we still cannot wait on a line to go even to a low earth orbit Hilton, let alone a Trump Tower on the Moon.

If Outer Space Were A Real Place It Would Have Been Commercialized By Now: You Will Never Fly These Friendly Skies

If the satellite launching track record, with its precision and reliability were as advertised, then why no commercially marketed rides up into the sky?  Why do only the chosen few get to go? Why will the rest of us have to wait forever? Outer Space is not a real place. The promise for such virgin rides relies on the wait until tomorrow or next year, lie. Trips to Outer Space are as real as Jesus Christ's return at the end of the story sold as "time".

What is Science?

"This begs the question: What is science? According to Sakharov, “We regard as ‘scientific’ a method based on deep analysis of facts, theories and views, presupposing unprejudiced, unfearing open discussion and conclusions.” How does this have any relevance to the Eclipse? Was there any adherence to any of these principles? Einstein completely waffled as far as how he came up with the values he obtained for the purported values of the deflection of light, Eddington promptly cooked the data, and the supporters of Einstein have attempted to portray dissenters to any of Einstein’s theories as crackpots.

The number of “reputable” scientists who have bought into this whole farce looks like a Who’s Who of prominent scientists. For example, Eddington completely bamboozled the Royal Society and the Royal Astronomical Society at his triumphant talk he gave to them. “Sir Joseph Thomson, President of the Royal Society and Chair of the meeting, strongly endorsed the results.” It does not appear that any scientists present actually looked at the photographic plates (the whole affair was more like a coronation rather than a scientific presentation e.g. Pais stated, “...the day on which Einstein was canonized.” "


Don't Be Stupid. NASA and everyone else says that Einstein is right and outer space is real so it must be.

You are stupid and dumb, if you think they are all wrong!

"Calling people stupid or pointing out their stupidity are generally recognized as acts of condescending judgment. We disapprove of what others did, why they did it, or even how they did it, and so we call them or their actions stupid as a way to reflect our disbelief or disgust. In this sense, the act of naming the behavior of others as stupid is a simple way to vent frustration and express displeasure.

But calling someone stupid is not just a mechanism for psychic or psychological relief. Although we may feel better or even superior when we lash out like this, it may not be the only reason we do it. There may also be underlying sociological components at work here. A possible explanation is that calling someone stupid is an attempt to reinforce the boundaries of group norms and solidify our social (or collective) identities.

If you think about it, one of the underlying sentiments we are suggesting when we call someone stupid is: “Why can’t you just act like the rest of us?” We are shocked that others could act so unintelligently because these actions fall outside the expectations of normative behavior. It is hard for us to understand how someone could act this way when everyone else, or at least most of us “normal” folks, does not engage in these sorts of uninformed thoughtless actions.      

In addition to identifying norm-breaking behavior, categorizing others as stupid might also be an attempt to secure our social or collective identities. Calling someone stupid is no doubt often understood as a patronizing insult; however, it can also be a not-so-subtle plea to bring someone back into the fold of the social group. The underlying sentiment, “why can’t you just act like the rest of us,” also may contain within it an expression of concern. If someone with whom we align ourselves is acting stupidly, then our collective identity is potentially soiled and threatened by their actions."


The Educational Grading System Is a Tool For Mental Indoctrination & A System of Behavior That We Are Encouraged To Emulate

"Operant conditioning can be described as a process that attempts to modify behavior through the use of positive and negative reinforcement. Through operant conditioning, an individual makes an association between a particular behavior and a consequence."
