How Easy Is It to Snooker America into War?

Pretty easy, it would seem, if past propaganda efforts are any indication. 

Consider just one ensample not related to war.  Many folks in the States some decades back, when they had a little better sense then they do today, were persuaded to give up their healthy butter and lard for Crisco’s harmful, chemically-adulterated, hydrogenated oil because of a few vague marketing phrases:

From the beginning, the company’s marketers talked a lot about the marvels of hydrogenation – what they called “the Crisco process” – but avoided any mention of cottonseed. There was no law at the time mandating that food companies list ingredients, although virtually all food packages provided at least enough information to answer that most fundamental of all questions: What is it?

In contrast, Crisco marketers offered only evasion and euphemism. Crisco was made from “100% shortening,” its marketing materials asserted, and “Crisco is Crisco, and nothing else.” Sometimes they gestured towards the plant kingdom: Crisco was “strictly vegetable,” “purely vegetable” or “absolutely all vegetable.” At their most specific, advertisements said it was made from “vegetable oil,” a relatively new phrase that Crisco helped to popularize.

That’s all it took.  Now, in the case of modern war propaganda, the techniques are far more sophisticated, and folks’ grasp of reality is far worse than it used to be.  With all that in mind, is it more likely that the average voter is going to be able to discern the truth about Iran (or Russia, Venezuela, and so on), or that he will fall prey to the CIA-Operation Mockingbird media drumbeat urging the States into another ‘war for peace in the Middle East’?

Unless God has mercy on us through the prayers of His saints, the latter is sadly the more likely.

Holy Ælfred the Great, King of England, South Patron, pray for us sinners at the Souð, unworthy though we are!

Anathema to the Union!
