What has Changed
In the Dark Ages they burned witches, because people accused of witch craft were believed to carry out magical spells and sorcery. There was no proof needed for the condemnation, just the charge repeated enough until people started to believe in the accused persons guilt.
Today we have reverted back to these times, where only the accusation of guilt is needed for the accuser to be judge and jury. In those days, people were kept in fear by the wrath of the church.
Now, propaganda - through public relations - not proof, screams over the voice of dissent, as the innocent are put to the horror of the incendiary bomb. There is no more proof needed now - that a certain country is a threat to western power, before that country can be attacked - than there was in the Dark Ages, when so called witches, were put to the stake.

Before you open the following link remember the Sun newspapers, who when at the time they were accusing people seeking asylum of freeloading on our economy had not paid any corporate tax for twelve years.

The Public Relations mantra - Any lie repeated often enough becomes the truth
Beginners guide to Propaganda

The BBC would tell you, or imply, the protesters were throwing rocks for the troops to start firing rubber bullets. But the proof of the film says otherwise. How many times are we lied to
Propaganda is baby food, that is predigested information with all the complicated bits taken out. A kind of smooth paste that offers a type of nourishment but only enough to keep the mind active but blank.
The only way to fight bad propaganda is to exercise the mind by enquiry. Who is telling me this stuff and what will the gain by my belief in it.
THE GRANFALLOON TECHNIQUE
'What the propagandist is really saying is: "You are on my side (never mind that I created the teams); now act like it and do what we say." '
The Lucifer Effect
Understanding how good people turn evil
“I live in the Managerial Age, in a world of ‘Admin’. The greatest evil is not now done in those sordid ‘dens of crime’ that Dickens loved to paint. It is not even done in concentration camps and labour camps. in those we see its final result. But it is conceived and ordered (moved, seconded, carried and minuted) in clean, carpeted, warmed and well-lighted offices, by quiet men with white collars and cut fingernails and smooth-shaven cheeks who do not need to raise their voices.”
