This is an excellent and extremely important article about the pervasive and effective nature of western propaganda - a must read! twitter.com/caitoz/status/…

"As political scientist Bernard Cohen famously observed way back in 1963, the press 'may not be successful much of the time in telling people what to think, but it is stunningly successful in telling its readers what to think about'" Great piece by @caitoz. Essential reading. twitter.com/caitoz/status/…

My gawd - this is a f*cking GEM of an article (laying out the details of how propaganda functions, both in general and the US/west now.) Please share widely. And also - PLEASE *think*. twitter.com/caitoz/status/…
Most Propaganda Looks Nothing Like This "By feeding us all these simple, foundational lies day after day, year after year from the time we are very young, they lay the groundwork for the more complex, specific lies we'll be told later on." youtube.com/watch?v=Io0rcP…
"Propaganda is administered in western nations, by western nations, across the political spectrum — and the really blatant and well-known examples of its existence make up only a small sliver of the propaganda that our civilization is continuously marinating in."… twitter.com/i/web/status/1…
"As political scientist Bernard Cohen famously observed way back in 1963, the press 'may not be successful much of the time in telling people what to think, but it is stunningly successful in telling its readers what to think about.' soundcloud.com/going_rogue/mo… twitter.com/i/web/status/1…
Most Propaganda Looks Nothing Like This The overwhelming majority of domestic propaganda in the west is not the glaring Saddam-has-WMDs variety, it's those mundane, routine deceptions they feed us from day to day to bind us to the mainstream worldview. caityjohnstone.medium.com/most-propagand…
@uncle_authority @GonnaCj @Dreznicagoat @smellbeard @bidetmarxman @RodericDay @__ulaan Usually people ask questions when that happens.
@eshaLegal @uncle_authority @Dreznicagoat @smellbeard @bidetmarxman @RodericDay @__ulaan Okay well if your perspective doesn't conflict with my account it doesn't seem like we disagree about anything.
@GonnaCj @uncle_authority @Dreznicagoat @smellbeard @bidetmarxman @RodericDay @__ulaan Why do you suppose the Syrian government and other empire-targeted governments restrict western media and information distribution? For fun?
@uncle_authority @GonnaCj @Dreznicagoat @smellbeard @bidetmarxman @RodericDay @__ulaan No idea how you're making that feel like a logical response to anything that's being said here.
@some1guy929 If you believe I have to deny a massive part of history to say what I just said, then it is you who is denying history.
@GonnaCj @uncle_authority @Dreznicagoat @smellbeard @bidetmarxman @RodericDay @__ulaan You're arguing with a basic fact that researchers have discovered about human psychology as though it's just my philosophical opinion or something. That people have a tendency doesn't mean it can't be overridden by material conditions or other circumstances at times.
@eshaLegal @uncle_authority @Dreznicagoat @smellbeard @bidetmarxman @RodericDay @__ulaan That's the thing though; I didn't see through the propaganda when my standard of living got worse, I saw through it when my standard of living got better. Having enough money and free time and inner peace was what gave me the ability to do the necessary research and break out.
@eshaLegal @uncle_authority @Dreznicagoat @smellbeard @bidetmarxman @RodericDay @__ulaan No it's the other way around; the empire prefers to use brute force like the Jakarta method but needs to use propaganda in parts of the world it can't get away with it. I believed propaganda for the same reason someone raised in a religion believes its tenets: it was all I knew.
@some1guy929 "Contentious" is a far walkback from "imperialist". The fact is that China has a very, very, VERY long tradition of making sure each territory gets carried forward by every new government instead of getting lost to balkanization. They haven't needed white western help with it.
@RonSFriedman That they are clueless is very clearly and explicitly not the claim.
@some1guy929 Every territory you just mentioned is historically Chinese. Not recently, for a long time.
Someday the leaders of ecocidal corporations will be put on trial for their crimes against our planet. Their defense that they did it to generate profits for their shareholders will be treated the same as war criminals saying they were just following orders.
@some1guy929 So China.
@cccrewmom Goo goo ga ga.

Australians are particularly vulnerable to propaganda because the country has the most concentrated media ownership in the Western world. twitter.com/i/web/status/1…
@__ulaan @uncle_authority @Dreznicagoat @smellbeard @bidetmarxman @RodericDay I mean you literally just claimed that it's "propaganda" for me to talk about my own experience with belief in mainstream western narratives. If you still feel this debate is going well for you that says a lot more about you as a person than the way this debate is going.
The reason we always hear the phrase "socialism with Chinese characteristics" is because China has an acute awareness that it's a unique nation with unique needs and values which don't apply everywhere else. The notion that it's trying to impose its system on the world is absurd. twitter.com/RnaudBertrand/…
