If They Would Feed Radioactive Oatmeal to Little Kids, What Wouldn’t They Do?
Considering that all media is filtered through just five megacorporations (compared with 50 companies in the early 80s), not to mention (but I will) the fact that domestic propaganda was officially “approved” for use against the American people a few years ago, it’s kinda hard to tell the difference between what is real and what isn’t anymore.
Besides, it’s all “hey look, shiny things”. Pay attention to the right hand so you won’t see what the left is doing.
The distractions on the “news” also serve another purpose. To fill up your short term memory like junk food for the brain. To keep you from remembering what happened last week, let alone last year. From putting these things into perspective, especially historical perspective.
