Whoops! Cutting Propaganda to the Poor

You just know they're sweating bullets now. In flusher times, Congress passed a bill to force all Americans to buy new TVs by Feb. 17, 2009, so that they could switch broadcasting to digital.

And now, although Congress backpedaled furiously and extended the deadline, some stations who already invested in the new technology switched over today, leaving mostly poor, elderly and minorities without TV.

Whoops! The US depends on TV to keep the masses pacified and ignorant. Good looking vacuous talking heads confidently spout the daily talking points that are fed to them in order to inocculate Americans with the absurdities that make them support atrocities. (Thank you, Voltaire, for that soundbite).

What will they do? Think for themselves? Listen to hate radio? Talk to their neighbors?

This is like a hole in fence of a giant corral. Will the cattle notice and escape? Or will they just mill about as usual, never realizing that they have a choice?
Maybe we'll find out, maybe we won't. TV doesn't cover rebellions and insurrections.

I wonder what would happen if we were not shouted at with chosen messages. Why is government spending so much money to keep us connected? I read someplace that it was 1 billion dollars for those coupons to keep us all plugged in. Can we even imagine a world in which we get up in the morning and live our lives based on what is real around ourselves and our communities? We would see a different set of problems to solve than what the government wants to focus our attention on. It would be a better world.

Yes, it would.

Hence, the coupons!

We are buried under tonnes of bullshit. The masses are indoctrinated to the eyeballs.

For change to take place we need to clear our minds, start thinking for ourselves.

We need to become neo-humans!
