Can Broadened "#Counterterrorism" Rules #Open #Door to Indefinitely Detaining #Peaceful #Protesters? | Articles relating to Fahrenheit 451 | Scoop.it

The United States government could be using terrorism as an excuse to implicate stronger reactions people who stand up against them, literally impairing rights guaranteed to us in the Constitution. As long as the media shows higher terror scares they can scare the people into sacrificing long term freedoms for short term safety. Fear often promotes the ignorance of the masses, a theme expressed vividly in Fahrenheit 451 in the destruction of knowledge. Ignorance is defined as the the lack of knowledge so the fact that the fireman burns books he is depriving the people of that knowledge. The main difference between the destruction of knowledge and the NDAA is that the act uses fear to promote ignorance instead of destroying knowledge.

#US Politicians, #Money Launderers in the Trafficking of Power and Policy: #Bill #Moyers | Articles relating to Fahrenheit 451 | Scoop.it

Our Presidents, Senators, and Congressmen have become greedy powerful men who possess the power to control our lives more and more. The are fueled by wealthy men who invest in their campaigns to make sure the laws they need to be passed are. To end this corruption money must be taken out of politics so that the largest donors aren't given the largest voice. Money also fuels the corruption driven media that give us our daily "news" and information about how to carry on with our lives. The destruction of knowledge has the same effect as this money overshadowing truth, the powerful want to keep us living in fear instead of in peace and love. By scaring the United States population they enslave them to sacrifice any freedom to keep themselves and their families safe.

The media's influence can be used to promote ignorance by conveying a false truth and making the people believe it. In this case it is to justify the constant growing rate of arrests and the lowering rates of crime that occur in the U.S today. A Washington poll showed that people believed crime rates to be increasingly higher each year while some specialists say we are living in the most peaceful time in mankind. This can be easily relation to the fireman's destruction of truth to promote lies that the government wanted to be available to the public. The authors world and ours are not so different, only few realize what a valuable tool the media is for our politically powerful leaders who lie to us continuously.
