An Elaboration on Molyneux's Correct Point on War and Similar Propaganda - Styx


Stefan Molyneux‏@StefanMolyneux 21h21 hours ago:

You saw the bodies in Syria.

Did you see the bodies in Sweden?

That's all you need to know.



Making parallels between what's happening in Syria and violence in other places like Yemen, Africa, or even Europe - where the media censors (or largely sanitises) events for political reasons. We are shown the most emotion triggering images and then told who are enemies are while other corruption is obfuscated, especially that exposing Western policy 'failings'. For instance, emotion triggering images of dead people in Sweden might cause a (larger) backlash against the open door immigration policy. Emotion triggering images of dead children in Yemen would cause a backlash against the Saudi-US attack on that country. What we see on the TV is very selective - and we must be aware of how we are being emotionally manipulated.
