  • Drive-Thru Brain Washing

    How do you want your brain washed, slow and subliminal, or with a knock to the head? The most damaging and pervasive is the slow and constant drum beat of a set of messages. The internet media is open 24 hours a day. Can’t sleep? Get online. Bored? Get online. Want a news update? Yup, get on line. This is drive-thru information delivery. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    What is published online can be a powerful medium of influence, even subliminally. Online publishers must become aware of their influence in today’s society. In a 2005 study by the Stanford Institute for the Quantitative Study of Society, it was reported that Americans use the internet 3 &#189; hours per day which is an increase of 4% over 2004. This study also found that the majority of time spent online (38.9%) was spent communicating with friends, family and colleagues. This describes online “bird flu” communities. We are friends. We have become family. And all of us are colleagues in the quest to find a solution to the H5N1 issues. As online publishers we have the responsibility to our communities to be clear in our mission and guide these societies in that framework. By allowing the community to drift from the stated mission, publishers can inadvertently change the entire tone and emotional climate of the community. If the messages become anti-social then the community can develop into a dysfunctional family, and a downward spiral in mass communication is begun. As the bar is lowered by each new anti-social dialogue, the standard of acceptable online behavior becomes lower also. The members of the community may gradually come to accept some of these new behaviors and dialogues as “normal”. <o:p></o:p>

    Constant exposure to anti-social dialogue or hate speak can and will affect even the most saintly among us. In 1946 news media executive Julius Streicher was sentenced to death for genocide for an anti-Semitic campaign of propaganda through print media in Nazi Germany during World War II. An international court in December 2003 in <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" /><st1:country-region><st1:place>Tanzania</st1:place></st1:country-region> convicted three Rwandan media executives of genocide for helping to incite a killing spree that killed 800,000 Rwandan Tutsis and moderate Hutus. The presiding judge of the Tanzanian court, Navanathem Pillay, said in her closing remarks:<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    “Without a firearm, machete or any physical weapon, you caused the deaths of thousands of innocent civilians.''

      The Flutrackers are the best and most up to date information on the emerging threat of a pandemic and how to prepare. There is not another factual site out there on the web that has emerging info and IS peer reviewed and fact checked as the Flutrackers Forum is.

Ntamabyariro is first senior former government official to be tried by the authorities in Kigali over the killing of 800,000 minority ethnic Tutsis and politically moderate Hutus. "She has been individually implicated in those crimes," Augustine Nkusi, Rwanda's national prosecutor, told reporters. Most high profile suspects in the 100-day slaughter have been prosecuted by the U.N.'s International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda, based in the northern Tanzanian town of Arusha. Ntamabyariro was arrested in Zambia in 1997. (Reporting by Hereward Holland; Editing by Daniel Wallis)

          Unfortunately this thread is being updated.

          Today in the United States Attorney General Eric Holder is before a committee in Congress explaining the issue of "targeted killings" - as if this is a legitimate topic.

          "Targeted killings" are NEVER acceptable.

          This hearing today is the result of the following letter sent to Congressman Paul from Mr. Holder:





          What a travesty this is! A rational discussion about under what circumstances people can be killed in the street without any kind of due process. And it is not just about Americans on American streets. This is unacceptable anywhere in the world.

          A very sad situation indeed.

            I think that US citizens should address an hidden issue in their recent history and political scenario: the bloodbaths in Iraq and Afghanistan.

            Without taking into account these two big disaster I think it will be difficult for Americans to evaluate with precision their grade of individual and collective freedom, their political class and the kind of society they're making.

            Television channels, media outlets, think-tankers made a very good job in building an image of the bloodbaths as needed for US integrity and future.

            Was this true?

            Was a big lie?

            It is now the time to open eyes and see.
