Dae, thanks for the vote, I apritiate it. How exactly the points system actually works still escapse me, but I apritiate the though.
orangetom1999, you brough up exellent points;
What I have also given though about is can disinformation/misinformation be passed on or promoted to the public through statistics and studys.
In otherwords can statistics and studys be politically motivated and not for the public consumption or good but for the purposes of control of the
That issue was investigated in deapth by a jeurnalist, and I found his article very interesting.
Before I go into it, thanks for this one;
it is so refreshing to run across someone who doesnt think all stamped/xeroxed out. Gives one hope.
Boy do I know how you feel. Let's keep that hope going, so I'll get back to the topic of "education".
Apperently such methods have been used for decades. While an illusion is created that there are literally thousands of all kinds of texbooks, and
that each school distric is free to choose what ever they consider apropriate, in reality there are only four companyes which hold a total monopoly of
the educational text book market.
The books them selves are not written by proffessors, but by unknown people who do not have a reputation to protect, thus all the misspellings,
twisting of the facts, and outward fallacyes which are tough to our children.
There are a lot of resources on the net about all kinds of parent groups which repetedly attempt to raise these questions, and unfortunelty to no
Disinformation is specifically targeted, and when it comes to the internet and the yonger generation, forums, blogs, and Wikipedia are perfect
examples of such methods.
On the topic of Wikipedia, simply go to www.wikitruth.info...
Same thing with blogs. These days it's the topic of Israli/Lebanese war, specifically the issue of "Hezbollawood". It's just a part of a
specifically ingeneered disinformation campaing. When enough presence has been achiven, media simply references such internet activety as an offitial
In reality people in offices and or homes simply get paided to spread such lies by endlessly repeating such "oppinions", and maliciosly attack
anyone who disagrees. It's a standard discriditation tecknique based on group mentality.
Exactly the same teckniqes are used in so called "ambush advertising." Advertising reps pose as strangers and ingage people in what they present as
a casuall conversation, while in reality they are on the payroll to sell products.
Same thing with internet propoganda. Paid agents present them selfes as simply another participant, while in reality they are on the job.
Keep an eye out for a news story on this topic, it's going to break soon. The pressure is mounting and now it's a political issue. Certain laws
have been passed to "regulate" blogs, legitimise Wikipedia, issue like illigal election campaing contributions, people on the payroll engaging in
blog/forum based political smear campaings to discredit the opponent and to advocate the candidate that's paying the bill, use of internet media for
political agitation, subversion, hate campaings, the list goes on.
Keep the hope, dig around, it's increadibly wicked out there, and "net kids" are up to their necks in it.
