Never has there been a greater need for critical thinking, yet it seems there has never been a time when that has been more difficult, because of the constant bombardment from the media of fragmented, discordant, conflicting, non-linear narratives, purposefully misdirecting lies, Orwellian double-speak and other strategies being deployed to keep us in a state of fearful, confused, manipulable stupification and…false consciousness.
Election time is almost here. That means it’s open season on the electorate, with cognitive dissonance warfare as the weapon of choice.
