A corollary to http://occupywallst.org/forum/america-loves-the-rich/
This attitude is supported by and often created by deliberate, systematic, simplistic and sustained corporatist propaganda as explained here -
That such propaganda is often distorted or stitched together of provable falsehoods is irrelevant to its effectiveness. Consistency and repetition are the only keys.
Propaganda is not innately bad, though its uses often have been. It has also often been false, though the truth can be just as effective and perhaps more so.
So how is this countered?
Acts that further frighten an already frightened and insecure public will only distance that public. Counter propaganda that is truthful, carefully planned and presented, systematic and that stays “on message” can, over time, begin educating the public and gradually shift the paradigm.
This is what is most frightening to the corporatists. That America will wake from its slumber and that the veil will fall from its eyes. This is why on this forum and elsewhere, when serious attempts are made to move in this direction, the corporatist stooges will immediately introduce an off-topic, hot button issue into the discussion such as illegal aliens, abortion, etc., so that progressive forum participants will then chase that rabbit, wasting time and energy on rebutting the corporatist think-tank derived distractions, rather than focusing on the message. Focus on the message. Focus on the message. Focus on the message.
