Primer on propaganda

bk-bj

“Propaganda is like rain…knowing it’s wet does not keep you dry if you’re exposed to the weather.”  — taopraxis

If you master spotting propaganda can you stand in the face of it?  It seems to me the answer is ‘a brief while.’    Like the beginning of a rain storm, understanding wet cold drops on your skin is not useful if you don’t take cover.  Soon you’ll be soaked and shivering.

Chris Martinson has won this year’s subconscious Olympics.  Not only for feeling the early drops, but warning other people to take cover.  Please read his excellent primer on propaganda and how it works.

And once you’ve identified a media outlet as untrustworthy, please come in out of the rain.

What civgene isn’t – subjective morality

 

Civgene is never an attempt to alter objective morality.  Instead it is meant to observe, contrast, and consider the implications that objective morality is biologically less compelling, and therefore less relevant, for psychopaths.

In the ideal case (where civgene’s theories and predictions are perfectly true), it would travel no further than explaining objective morality’s origin.  IMO such is true for all science.
