Jack, you need to study how to talk with other people without quickly getting angry, personal, and confrontational while you do it...because that inevitably poisons the discussion.

Nobody's method of gathering information is "perfect". We each try as best we can, and we are not perfect. I think that a person in Nazi Germany would have done better at getting a real understanding of events in 1940 by listening NOT JUST to the official German home broadcast media, but also to many independent voices, to the BBC, to America, to Switzerland, and to anyone else he could tune into. Don't you think so?

That was my point. You cannot trust the ruling mass media in the USA to give you an honest picture, because they are deeply influenced by their funding sources...their owners...their sponsors. And their owners are extremely few, and very centralized...like they were in Nazi Germany.

I am not smug, Jack, I am impassioned...and I am independent, and I recognize the face of fascism when I see it.

I am not calling you "brainwashed" and there is no sense in you taking it personally. I don't know where you get your info, and I have no basis for judging you on an individual basis. I was speaking generally about what I see happening in mass society in North America...I was not speaking about you as an individual.
