Global Research: When Media Gives You the Answers!
When media gives you the answers, you need to ask more questions. Turn on the television today, and you will undoubtedly hear the voice of mainstream newscasters reassuring you that the safety and security of you and your loved ones is being "taken care of" by your government, so much so that they are preparing to go to war on your behalf. Don't worry, they'll tell you, the military will eliminate the "threats" before they can even become threats! Just go about your daily life, spend your money, and trust that your tax dollars are where they need to be, protecting you from bogeymen, the ones who so selfishly refuse to bend to this so-called Western-style "democracy". Clearly, there's a problem here. No matter how many times we're sold the line that war is the only way to peace, the fundamental paradox in this statement can never be masked, not with all the corporate dollars thrown into creating mainstream media spin, nor by the best PR campaigns waged so smoothly by political lobbyists. The truth is the following: "The majority of Americans want the wars ended and the military spending cut, and the more they learn, the more they agree. The message of peace is one that you can expect people to agree with, even if they don't at first. So, never believe your television. Never doubt the popular demand for peace. Never stop spreading the word. Never accept that mass murder has been civilized. Know your own strength!" That may seem easier said than done, but engaged citizens across the globe are proving that we will not acquiesce quietly to the militarized media machine. Ever increasingly, people are waking up to the fact that tyranny, repression and exploitation are not, and should never be the norm. Another way is possible!
