Comment: "history is a set of lies agreed upon."

"history is a set of lies agreed upon."

today it's "terrorism" but yesterday it was the cold war.

there are still seas of widely accepted and disseminated propaganda about wwi, wwii, gulf wars, and even iraq/afganistan. you'll hear it peddled on television and it's pumped into your children's ears incessantly. this is how governments get you to do their bidding. lies and manipulation. and it's usually so subtle it's almost indiscernible. even when academia uncovers these lies, it just doesn't seem to sink into public knowledge.

now, this guy Furr may be a damned lunatic.. and he may not. but if he was even half right, how many people here would know? very few i imagine.

the power of propaganda not be underestimated.
