    from the Watchtower to commercials to talking heads on the news shows. everyone wanting us to share their point of view.

    they want our minds, our money, our votes and our mouths to spread their propaganda.

    propaganda controls the cultural and social order of the world.

    it takes more time to read, listen to thoughful educational programming and do research, so 99% of people just follow the


    training the individual mind to think rationally is the greatest challenge. we are making headway. will it be fast enough?

    Yep, propaganda is everywhere...but so is <send me your money> subliminal messages. They're everywhere <hot babes want me>, TV, movies, music. You just can't <I need tix to the Super Bowl> get away from it.

    I like what ee cummings said: " To be yourself in a world which is trying it's best, night and day to make you someone else, is to fight the hardest battle any human being can fight and never stop fighting."

    So true, joelb. It's a synthetic culture. Stop watching tv, stop listening to the radio, stop reading the newspapers, stop reading time/newsweek and mags like them, stop going to movies. Impossible? Not really. I stopped it all, and rarely see a movie, and very little tv.

    I stopped watching any meaningful amount of TV several years ago. I was amazed by how different the world starts to appear.

    Yeah...good quote Onesong....I will forward it to my daughter so we can discuss it in depth. It could suggest having a closed mind also. It's good to make us think.
