Every once in a while, we see reports from corporate media with alarming news about China agents spying on and stealing our secrets. No doubt some of this goes on, but to pretend that US spy agencies don't exist or are benign actors in these spy operations is laughable. This is another blatant illustration of how capitalist ruling class media attempt to shape our views toward China or any country that Empire directors regard as a threat to their interests. The problem is that they are too often successful in fooling the majority of Americans--and that is, of course, why they create such silly reports. As Will Durant once said,
It may be true that you can't fool all the people all the time, but you can fool enough of them to rule a large country.
