You hear the word “crisis” a lot, if you are paying attention. A search of Google News reveals an enormous number of “crises” underway. The label is now applied to everything. The term “crisis” is the language of propaganda. I will make a future post about some of the “crises” underway and how the use of language – and changes to language – are used to turn news reporting to a propaganda weapon.
While reading some of the links presented by Google, I ran across this one.
I read their “About” page.
That’s a propaganda operation: “… we will spur the revolution in consciousness and inspire the direct action that is necessary to save the planet and humanity”. That is not a legitimate news operation, yet Google News frequently features their articles.
Even the name “Truthout” is typical of propaganda (a la Pravda being Russian for “Truth”).
Learn to be skeptical – learn to recognize when you are the subject of a propaganda operation.
