Signs of the Times for Mon, 09 Oct 2006

What will you do when Signs is gone??

Welcome to a special Signs of the Times Podcast with editor and founder Laura Knight-Jadczyk

It's the End of the World as We Know It (Do you feel fine?)

It is clear that the planet is in deep trouble, from war to global warming, from disease or just the threat of disease to the growing economic squeeze on the mass of humanity. Our leaders try to keep us in a state of fear in order to convince us that we need them to protect us. But they are the real enemy of people of conscience everywhere. What can you do about it?

Oil and gold were down sharply and stocks were up, all seemingly good news. However, once again the drop in strategic commodities like oil and gold may have been driven by underlying weakness in the economy. And as for the stock gains, they too started to slip on Friday.

"The biggest lesson I learned from Vietnam is not to trust [our own] government statements-I had no idea until then that you could not rely on [them]."
James W. Fulbright (1905-1995), former US senator

Third sorrow: "The replacement of truth by propaganda, disinformation, and the glorification of war, power, and the military legions."
Chalmers Johnson, (Sorrows of Empire)

"If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State."
Joseph Goebbels, Nazi Minister of Propaganda

Propaganda machines are dangerous, even more so in a democracy than in a totalitarian regime, because their goal is to confuse, disinform, lie, raise fear and manipulate the opinions of the people. Indeed, those few hands that control the media have the power to turn lies into truth and truth into lies, without being contradicted, because they also have the power to silence any competing voices. This is the worse monopoly one can find, much worse than any economic monopoly. Indeed, when a small elite in power start using propaganda intensively, it makes a mockery of the democratic principle of self-government by the people. In fact, people begin to distrust the government because it has become a source of half-truths, lies and disinformation. Discouragement and apathy follow because people know that their views do not count and that the oligarchy in power will do whatever it wants, no matter what the supposedly 'sovereign' people thinks. It is only when the media are free and independent that people can hope to be honestly informed and be free from government manipulation.
