Think about it. The television. The movies. The music. All violent. All glorifying the worst parts of society. And if its not overly violent, its all slutted up.

Is life imitating art? Or art imitating life?

Hmmm, I kinda beat zerohedge to the punch about five months ago. At the very least the two go hand-in-hand:

Hmmm, what did Mel Gibson say about it?

Can't remember. AIPAC rings a bell.

Mel might not remember - depending on how late at night it was and if he were home or at a club.

The entire media (all 6 corpoRAT companies) is one gigantic propaganda/manipulation machine.

"All these obvious and reasonable questions have to be scratched and forgotten, because the television story is moving into different territory, and the viewer wants to follow the story.

This constant flicker effect eventually produces, in the television viewer…passivity.

He surrenders to the ongoing narrative. Surrenders.

This is mind control.

The television anchor doesn’t have a problem. His job is to move seamlessly, through an ever-increasing series of contradictions and discarded details, to keep the narrative going, to keep it credible.

He knows how to do that. That’s why he is the anchor." http://jonrappoport.wordpress.com/2012/12/20/sandy-hook-mind-control-flicker-effect/

"Every civilization and every generation has their defining voices.

The voice does two things. It tells the story of the times; and it injects the telltale emotions, moods, and attitudes of that story.

The public swallows the tale with all its lies and omissions, and accepts the way in which the whole act is spooled out by the sound of the narrative voice." http://jonrappoport.wordpress.com/2013/01/10/media-fascism-is-all-about-trusted-television-anchors/

"The guests are prepped by one of the producers before they go on-air. This is where the brainwashing occurs. A potential conflict needs to be resolved. The network has its agenda and the guest has his.

The guest is swimming in a welter of emotions, in the wake of the tragedy. A family member has died. The environment of the storm or the murders is still chaotic.

The network wants to “edit” these feelings, “to convey something specific.” http://jonrappoport.wordpress.com/2012/12/29/sandy-hook-how-television-takes-your-guns/

Well, it won't be happening because of your input.

Thanks anyways.

You might have to get a real job, or something.

only if you think civil engineering is a job and not a career.

[-] 1 points by Builder (4202) 5 years ago

Depends how you work it.

Outsourcing doesn't give you any job security, does it?

Built in China, and shipped to San Francisco?

film makers and writers have been using spy agencies as back drops for stories for 70+ years. it makes for compelling drama and action. it just is what it is. having characters work at the local wal-mart somehow just is not that compelling. put them in a high stakes job with lives, treasure, careers, families, and entire nations at stake well that makes for entertainment.

the industry aiming to mislead to misinform to suppress. in movie argo you can observe how the life of fellow americans has been set up to the boiling point in conflict zone. bunch of american citizens turn out to be in life threatened situation intentionally to escalate political pressure at this region and initiate military intervention/drone strikes... in order to prepare general public (brainwash) doesn't make sense still? in the future before military intervention or overthrow the regime a new movie will pop up.

I thought Hollywood was on Obamas side?

There is truth behind the saying - Monkey (real primate) see Monkey Do.

People who ignore the basic fact that seeing is learning and showing is teaching - Had better rethink their position.

Hey look what it did to Obama - made him the master of "using emotions to persuade gullable people"

Check out this 1934 black and white movie "Triumph of the Will" shot in Germany. They all learned it from the Master; Zieg Heil!
