One of the most insidious actions of MSM and social media is the filtering of information. People form opinions and make choices based on what they think they know. If you warp the narrative then you can control the way they think. It is easier and more common than you think. Let me give you an illustration of how it works.
Take Dihydrogen Monoxide. Some of you recognize what it is. Don’t play the spoiler. Let me quote the opening paragraph from DHMO, a site that reveals the dangers we all face. Let me quote the opening paragraph,
“Dihydrogen Monoxide (DHMO) is a colorless and odorless chemical compound, also referred to by some as Dihydrogen Oxide, Hydrogen Hydroxide, Hydronium Hydroxide, or simply Hydric acid. Its basis is the highly reactive hydroxyl radical, a species shown to mutate DNA, denature proteins, disrupt cell membranes, and chemically alter critical neurotransmitters. The atomic components of DHMO are found in a number of caustic, explosive and poisonous compounds such as Sulfuric Acid, Nitroglycerine and Ethyl Alcohol.”Sounds serious, doesn’t it? I understand that there have been city councils and educational groups who have tried to pass laws banning Dihydrogen Monoxide. They feel like total fools when someone explains to them that DHMO is just water.
Now let’s go back to the original concern about manipulating the flow of information. Nothing in the quoted paragraph is false. At the same time by using unfamiliar jargon and withholding basic facts you can cause a panic in the masses.
This is what goes on with global warming, covid, guns, hate speech and an endless list of causes that the Proregressives* are trying to use to destroy our liberty and our republic.
It is a serious issue. The Bill of Rights is under attack. The rule of law is being destroyed. It is time to recognize the problem and begin to speak up.
