Share the Truth!

^0Americans are the most over-entertained, uninformed people on the planet.^3000

Mostly know-nothings about domestic and geopolitical issues mattering most.^3000

The most important act any world citizen can do is to stop using all mainstream media.^3000

No exceptions whatsoever. It’s brainwash propaganda. Toxic sludge for the mind.^3000

Voices like this are NEVER heard on the mainstream media, owned by the sociopathic 1%.^3000

The "1%" is the global plutocracy, the billionaires, a puny segment of humanity.^3000

These people pretend to honor and defend democracy but are its most serious enemies. ^3000

Injustice, war, grotesque inequality and the murder of the planet is their handiwork. ^3000

Just 8 billionaires own as much wealth as HALF of all humanity—4 billion people.^3000

And the corporate media—which they own—is their main line of defense.^3000

That's why the best way to break their hold over us is to break their media. ^3000

Breaking the corporatocracy's stranglehold on political information is essential.^3000

Save humanity, the planet and its innocent creatures from the looming disasters. ^3000

Increase public distrust in the mainstream media and defeat their power to mislead.^3000

They lie 24/7. They sell you war. Injustice. Death. Confusion. And they never stop.^3000

Some more obviously than others, but they all lie. So trust no one on the Big Media.^3000

And beware of "entertainment shows" that also carry highly toxic imperialist propaganda.^3000

Like the fungal NCIS series. Or "24", glorifying Homeland Security. The police state.^3000

Or CBS Madam Secretary. A ridiculous show, like The West Wing. ^3000

Telling us the US government is good, that the president is good, that its cabinet is good.^3000

That the US establishment—which they represent—has noble aims. Rubbish!^3000

Hollywood and the "news media" are an integrated system of mass disinformation. ^3000

Propaganda to keep the people from waking up to the great crimes committed by their rulers.^3000

Get the healing truth from citizens' media, like The Greanville Post and its free voices. ^3000

Do your part to break the power of the mainstream media and its numerous whores.^3000

Become a soldier in the crucial battle of mass communications. Which we must win.^3000

As the ruling cliques prepare the world for nuclear war, now it's a matter of survival!^3000

Start today! Share this article on your Facebook, Twitter, Google or Instagram accounts! ^3000

If YOU don't share this, who will? Break the system's disinformation machine. Share!

  1. Stephen, while I’ve read and appreciated much of your work for years, you do Venezuela no favors with this short essay, “Venezuelans Prepare for Possible US Aggression”.

    It’s not reportage or analysis; it’s propaganda. It doesn’t deal with the “swing voter” today who’s trying to decide whether the support the Bolivarian Revolution (BR) or break ranks because there are flaws with the Vz gov’t and its policies.

    Maduro isn’t Chávez, and Chávez wasn’t perfect. Vz is a divided society. And the division isn’t neatly or fairly drawn. But it’s better to be truthful and complete when describing Vz today.

    I want to support the BR, but I want its supporters to be honest about the situation there. What must be seen is how the United States is actually undermining not only current Vzn gov’t officials, but the BR itself. There is also the US State Dept and USAID (for whom I worked for a year in Vietnam, ’66-’67, doing nasty stuff that rarely got reported or analyzed correctly, fairly). There are faux NGOs like the National Endowment for Democracy which isn’t really pro-democracy and has been quietly torpedoing the BR for almost two decades.

    Stephen, I hope you will take the time to be less rhetorical and more investigative journalistically. It does no good to white wash the failures and corruptions of many Vzn people and institutions.

    Viva the Bolivarian Revolution!
