The Canadian Ministry of "Truth": "Reality Is Whatever We Say It Is"

The Canadian Ministry of "Truth": "Reality Is Whatever We Say It Is" | Global politics | Scoop.it
In George Orwell's ''1984,'' the powerful create fact-free realities.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
The effect of flagrant misappropriations of truth and reality reduces language to a medium for propaganda, a mechanism of thought-control, entirely adaptable to the priorities and privileged perspectives of those in power.

  The Decline and Fall of the United States :   Information Clearing House - ICH | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

The U.S. empire can continue to see itself as a force for good, doing things that would be unacceptable for anyone else but never to be questioned when performed by the global cop -- that is, it can go on not seeing itself at all, expanding, over-reaching, and collapsing from within. Or it can recognize what it's about, shift priorities, scale back militarism, reverse the concentration of wealth and power, invest in green energy and human needs, and undo the empire a bit sooner but far more beneficially. Collapse is not inevitable. Collapse or redirection is inevitable, and thus far the U.S. government is choosing the path toward the former.

The Murderers of Kiev

The Murderers of Kiev | Global politics | Scoop.it
There seems to be a “suicide” epidemic afflicting opponents of the current Ukrainian government – nine opposition politicians and two journalists have mysteriously died since the beginning of the y...
Enrique Ferro's insight:

The narrative supported by the Western media – that the “revolution” which overthrew the democratically elected government of Viktor Yanukovych was a blow struck against authoritarianism and for “European values” – is no longer credible. Indeed, in the face of these murders – covered up by the regime as “suicides” – it is a sick joke. The thugs who executed the coup – with the invaluable help of the US and German governments – are outright fascists who don’t even bother to disguise their colors. Between banning Russian films and declaring the WWII era Nazi-collaborator Stephen Bandera a “national hero,” these crazies are the ideological heirs of the worst of the pro-Nazi militias that murdered thousands of Jews at Hitler’s behest.Legislation recently passed outlaws all “Communist” propaganda and symbolism, as well as Nazi emblems – but hails the OUN, the Congress of Ukrainian Nationalists, which fought alongside the German SS during World War II

The Ascent of Hillary, the $.2.5 Billion “People’s” Candidate | Black Agenda Report

The Ascent of Hillary, the $.2.5 Billion “People’s” Candidate | Black Agenda Report | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

The Democratic Party’s apologists like to call it a big tent with room for Blacks and browns and gays and labor and peace-loving people. But it’s actually a huge trap designed to contain and politically neutralize the folks who might otherwise turn against the rich. The Party has always been a scam, but at least in the old days it put on a populist show to fool the rank and file into believing that they could actually influence the party’s direction.
