Yep the Plastic Ono Band is playing in the background……but it is a valid statement….at least in my mind…..
Since my stint in the Army and experiencing war first hand I have been an anti-War advocate…..even been called a peacenik….but that was many years ago and that term has gone out of fashion….
Look at the MSM they are as pro-war as can be done…..the anti-war people have no chance for their side to be heard in this society…..it is the data these toads get and pass on to the public…..it is pure propaganda no matter how you try to cut it…..
Good data is needed for any debate….without it there is NO debate….
The world has witnessed a historic decline in world peace over the past decade that interrupts the long-term improvements since the Second Word War.
This trend is largely driven by the intensifying conflicts in the Middle East and North Africa. Terrorism is at an all-time high, battle deaths from conflict are at a 25-year high, and the number of refugees and displaced people are at a level not seen in sixty years. Notably, the sources for these three dynamics are intertwined and driven by a small number of countries, demonstrating the global repercussions of breakdowns in peacefulness.

To illustrate how bad info is passed on to the public…..let’s look at this…..
Two new congressional reports conclude senior military officials skewed information to make it look like the war was going better. The question is why.
Senior officials at U.S. Central Command manipulated intelligence reports, press statements, and congressional testimony to present a more positive outlook on the war against the so-called Islamic State, a House Republican task force concluded in a damning report released Thursday.
The report, written by the members of the House Armed Services and Intelligence committees and the Defense Appropriations subcommittee, confirmed more than a year of reporting by The Daily Beast about problems with CENTCOM analysis of the war against ISIS.

This is our reality now…..look at the invasion of Iraq in 2003…..predicated on lies…..and little has changed since those days….
The American people are lied to on a daily basis and few attempt to find the real story….and we are now involved in multiple conflicts because of that laziness.
Thanks to that laziness the public mind is managed by the MSM……
Life is complicated; or appears to be. The arguments leading up to last week’s UK referendum on EU membership involved claims and counter-claims concerning trade, economic impacts etc. whereas the real issue at hand is concentrated power: self-determination versus unaccountable technocratic rule. By discussing immigration and framing the debate in terms of fear of the future (untold disasters were promised should people vote to leave the EU), the question of who rules became peripheral to the debate. The complexity of such issues is contrived to deceive.
Daily Pickings has often referred to Edward Bernays and mass manipulation. In this article, Andrew Gavin Marshall explains how education and media evolved as weapons of mass manipulation under the direction of the Rockefeller Foundation. Propaganda quickly became the means to subvert and control the “will of the people”.

The MSM refuses to highlight Clinton’s war hawk attitudes…..her siding with the M-IC…..
Yes the public are sheep….sad thing is that they have decided to be just that.
