Bipartisan support for legalizing propaganda

http://www.buzzfeed.com/mhastings/congressmen-seek-to-lift-propaganda-ban

Looks like this insert in the latest defense authoritation bill authorizes the government to use propaganda on American citizens.

The amendment would “strike the current ban on domestic dissemination” of propaganda material produced by the State Department and the independent Broadcasting Board of Governors, according to the summary of the law at the House Rules Committee’s official website.

This isn’t right. No matter who supports this in both parties, we should demand honesty from our government. We shouldnt give them the power to lie to us. Speak up. Demand honesty from our government. Bring this to people’s attention so we can kill this insert before it gets passed as a law.

It’s more important now than ever that we seek to make our lives honest. Truth cleaves unto truth. If we aren’t seeking the truth and living it, we will easily be decieved by lies. God will reveal the Truth to us, let us have faith enough to seek it and do what we can to prevent others from being decieved.

  1. Hey neal!
    Just came across your blog today. I like what I read. (I’m not a spammer! It’s me, catania)

    I agree with you about making our lives honest. I’ve been reading a lot about sociopathy/psychopathy and the number one thing they do–lie. Interestingly enough, one of the books talks about how sometimes societies support sociopaths by championing certain sociopathic behaviors (impulsivity, manipulation, and dishonesty). It seems like this is what happening here. The more we are okay with stuff like this, the worse off we’ll be. I’m afraid that we won’t realize it until we have a lot to “clean up.”

    Anyways. keep up the good work 🙂
