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

"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

Jeranism and Chris Kendall Discuss Flat Earth Theory

A really excellent discussion between Chris Kendall from Hoax Busters Call and Jeran from the Jeranism website and YouTube channel.

I do not agree with the idea of a Flat Earth, but that is my opinion, based on my observations of the natural world. I am not the thought police, so if for some reason you believe otherwise, that's your business to mind and not mine. I have seen no compelling evidence to support the Flat Earth idea. I  think the evidence for the globe shaped Earth more obvious and demonstrable; but I do happen to agree with a lot of what both these two men have to say. I found this to be an insightful and thought provoking conversation.

(Just to be clear I do not mean to imply that Mr. Kendall thinks the Earth is Flat, that is not the case, but to learn his opinion click on the link. For those that might not know, jeranism is the name of Jeran's Flat Earth YouTube channel.)

Jeran and Chris have a civil exchange of ideas that is well worth listening to:
