Why controlling the masses through media no longer works 88% Posted May 2017

Why controlling the masses through media no longer works

Comment: 139 days ago

Sir....I'm too embarrassed to laugh. Democacy's around the world are in a world of trouble because of the concentration of corporate ownership of the news media. Everyone on the planet has read Professor Noam Chomsky's book,"Manufacturing Consent" or watched the NFB of Canada documentary of the same titled. Examples below as links.

Was Jeremy Corbyn wrong to link foreign policy to terror?

Comment: 141 days ago

Jeremy Corbyn is correct by way of the facts...NOT speculation. Just the same as the United States foreign policy motivated,"Blowback or 9-11" .

Why do Americans smile so much?

Comment: 144 days ago

They do?  They have hope and each other but....no, they're not happy these days and for at least a generation. Free Trade Agreements, Wars they fight in they shouldn't be in in the first place, Climate Change, Vaccines, GMO's, the concentration of the corporate owned media and the resulting bias and missing news, American support for Zionism,ect.

Your everyday working American wouldn't be like that. They would be polite and courteous and "NOT" butt in. They have ethics and morals.

Reminds me of the Niagara Parks Commissions Horticulture School. My parents took us there when we young(2-9) and when our children were young, we took them there. The students do a wonderful job with the school. http://www.niagaraparks.com/school-of-horticulture

TEDtalks - There is no way back for religion in the West 88% Posted Apr 2017

TEDtalks - There is no way back for religion in the West

Comment: 171 days ago

I don't know about THAT statement. I'm not religous nor do I adhere to anyone particular religion or sect but I do think there is something greater than ourselves. Even Albert Einstein believed in something greater than himself...a God of sorts. The problem with religion, in my opinion, is old fat white guys. They make religion a form of social construct or a form of social control. Hate women, hate blacks, hate gays and lesbians, hate Turks, hate Jews, Hate Arabs....from the Koran, to the Talmud to the Bible...religion has a spiritual side to it that helps us all. It can give us purpose and direction. We can also learn allot about purpose, direction and kindness from atheists and agnostics. We just have to be "teachable".

The business of business is business(M. Friedmen) As long as Capitalism is the economic system, the only thing that matters is profits...not people or the climate or the environment or even nuclear war.

Canadians act similarily to Germans in the same situation. Emergency Response Vehicles get priority because most people understand or have empahty or both for emergency sitautions.

That was a poor interview of Professor Chomsky. The interviewer was asking questions that required a chrystal ball. Come on Al Jazzerra...you folks can do better than that.
