We’ve lived so long under the spell of hierarchy—from god-kings to feudal lords to party bosses—that only recently have we awakened to see not only that “regular” citizens have the capacity for self-governance, but that without their engagement our huge global crises cannot be addressed. The changes needed for human society simply to survive, let alone thrive, are so profound that the only way we will move toward them is if we ourselves, regular citizens, feel meaningful ownership of solutions through direct engagement. Our problems are too big, interrelated, and pervasive to yield to directives from on high.

Propaganda Bill in Congress Could Give America Its Very Own Ministry Of Truth

I normally don't post articles that emphasize the sensational especially if the post is about something that could only possibly happen. But this article, and the links that follow, I believe are a sign of the times we live in, of the increasingly desperate attempts by our capitalist overlords to hang on to their power and wealth and to the system that delivers these drugs to them.

Of course our capitalist overlords literally didn't introduce this bill in Congress, but this is how they function: through their paid-for members of Congress to preserve the myth that our government functions as some kind of democracy. I simply can't believe that Congressmen Adam Kinzinger and Ted Lieu did this on their own initiative. I can't prove it, but more likely they introduced this draconian bill on the orders of people who serve as well-paid agents of the capitalist ruling class.

The misuse of media and the censorship of media is reported on by two journalists that observed events in Libya and Syria in a translated article entitled "The manipulative role of the western press in regime change".

When our masters in the capitalist ruling class can no longer manage us by managing the information we receive, then you can be certain that they will reveal their hidden fist of fascism by using the police, military, and vast prison complex to keep us obedient to their directives.
