Propaganda: Lions for Lambs

Lions_for_Lambs

I have never reviewed a moving propaganda before, but I thought since I watch it all, why not tap in.

Lions for Lambs is a very interesting attempt to rationalize going to war against two countries whose leaders decided to bite the hand that fed it.  First against Osama Bin Laden, then Saddam Hussein.  The only true words in the entire movie were, “Rome is burning”.

I don’t mind being called a “conspiracy theorist”, because, first, I concluded there was a conspiracy and second, theory is based on scientific observation and experiment.

You may not agree, but 9/11 was prepared for, allowed and cleanly executed.  The twin towers and the adjacent buildings were felled by demolition by the incumbent powers to incite Americans to war.  Doing so did not require a large group of people, just a small backroom fraternity.  Let’s call them the Fight Club.

This set up things for the attack of Afghanistan, followed by the really big lie:  The incessent repetition, and little more, of weapons of mass destruction paranoia until the country was psychotic enough to attack Iraq.  It wasn’t a war on terror.  It was a war based on terror.

So, six years later, we have Lions for Lambs.  With Meryl Streep doing her trademark crying jag, this time for all the American cannon fodder in the middle east.   The rationale of continuing the offensive?  World War against China whose allies are the Al Quaeda in Pakistan, the Iranians, North Korea.  The new Axis.  This is all sprinkled in amongst a call to raise an American civilian army little different than the pre-war force in Nazi Germany building the Autobahns and marching in formation with shovels.

Obama is currently changing the American legal system systematically to create a judicial system for future crime using the moniker “Rule of Law”.

America is preparing for war.  They are preparing to put a general into the next Republican Presidential seat or an actor called Tom Cruise.

Hey, young America, grab your shovels, the Long Marchers are on their way.

Secular Extremism: Smart Mob for Evolution Education

waterring

Fight for your right to be educated instead of indoctrinated.

The Religious Right violated the United States Constitution when they interrogated the presidential candidates as to their religious convictions.  No one has to share their religious convictions with anyone for any job including the presidency and making them do so is a criminal act.  Now, the Religious Right wants to violate the United States Constitution again by bringing Creationism into schools funded by the State.  There is a clear separation between Secular State Evolution Education and Christian Creationism Indoctrination.  Religious indoctrination in a Secular State school is a criminal act.

“Picture this: enterprising students in cities in Texas, particularly, and other cities nationwide – along with counterparts in Romania, which just mandated a Creationism-only science curriculum (I kid you not), and maybe Turkey, for good measure – organize Smart Mobs to strike, peacefully and simultaneously, out of the blue to demand only 21st century science – yes, I mean evolution – be included in their biology and other science textbooks.

“And they do it quickly, before Texas’ Creationist-dominated Board of Education votes next Spring to insert Creationism yet again into its science standards. (See this post.)

“They happen at such places as the Texas capitol building, the lobbies of textbook publishers’ headquarters, science museums, the national capitol, and wherever else seems like a good idea.

“And they simply follow the steps of this one of many excellent videos from the Personal Democracy Forum”

This conduct is not only acceptable, it is essential to the success of Western civilization.  We cannot let extreme Islamicism drag our societies down into the quagmire of reactionary Christian extremism.  Our real opponents are preparing to conquer space, a vantage point where we will have no protection against an aggression that will make 9/11 look like a firecracker.  To fight back we will have to advance science like never before and pour resources into scientific development like never before.  We need evolution to advance as we need all sciences to survive in this century.  If it means bringing our secular youth out of the Middle East and sending the Religous Right’s Salvation Army in as cannon fodder against extreme Islam, I’m behind it.  Secular Constitutional societies will concentrate on supremacy in space which will decide the ultimate outcome on land, air and sea.

We require secular extremism to take hold in the minds of our youth.
