So they suspect it was nazis and not al-Quieda, too many people say we "shud just nuke the middle east" I like that now I can say and so we should nuke the west as well because Nazis are terrorists too and they live in the west.
I hate all far right wing groups with a passion, you have to be so will fully ignorant to justify far rightness.
the far left dont march around persecuting/intimidating minorities and setting off bombs, so that so far at the moment you cant say the same about the far left, germany counts as an economic power house in the western world.
I would advise you to open your eyes and realize that the world isn't as black and white as your think it is. The left isn't always the good guys and the right isn't always the bad guys. Each side has done really good things and each have done really awful things. And yes yhe far left have set of many bombs over the years. But how bout instead of prosecuting a whole group of people (Left or Right) we actually blame the people who did it and not who they are affiliated with?
I'm really getting tired of the media making 90% of the population over here in the US seem like the United States is the perfect society. Seriously, I'm sure if we bombed one of Iran's large cities, the United States populous wouldn't give two sh*ts or even praise the US for it. This black and white thing as gone too far.
its not all about the audience, theres PR, its the other money maker and its potentially more lucrative than giving people what they want to hear, its the UKs biggest industry at the moment.
Israel spends 11billion a year on PR!
When thatcher was in power murdoch was "the man who could take on the unions" being an editor of the sun that meant "man to manipulate the people to the governments will" thatcher was the first prime minister to use PR that way, hence the reason she was so popular (despite laying off 3 million with no contingency)
Yea the media is incredibly powerful and I honestly cannot even begin to understand the ins and outs of it. But the very fact that there are people in this thread that know the media can be full of it just shows that we're becoming more aware and less susceptible to media influence.
We even have the option to choose our media outlet now. There was no way to do that decades ago, what they show you is all you're gonna get. We can question the media and even people from the media are coming out and telling us "hey guys, this is actually crap".
We as the audience are becoming more fickle. We want what we want when we want it and the media has to keep up with that. Is the audience into vampires now? Rush those blood suckers out! What zombies now? Go mindless undead! Justin Bieber? Make a Hollywood budget movie of a fifteen year old.
PR is the very practice of giving people what they want to hear; or at least convincing them of it. It can't just sway people into changing their opinions with a flick of a switch. I'm not familiar with Murdoch's role in Thatcher's administration, but did people at the time even know about what she did? I doubt Obama can even get away with spitting in public now. Maybe that's why PR is so costly, it's just that much harder to pull off/too much dirt to clean.
whether doling out punishment, or thinking you are doling out punishment can you imagine how fucked up you have to be to set out to seriously harm someone?
wanting to punch someone even breaking something a little bit, say someone stole your girlfriend is understandable and just extreme communication but killing or maiming someone? you cant justify that,
and even unless someone murdered your whole family seeking revenge or setting out to punish someone is mental illness.
You've just contradicted the argument you've been trying to prove this entire thread.
If everyone followed what you just posted there would be no violence.
You took it out of context anyway, I meant it more as a rephrase than something I was devoted to.
Kindof like everything I've said, though I do believe it, it's more a way to spark thought rather than to prove I'm right.
What I honestly think when I think "What would I do if I found the people who bombed Boston"? "I would be famous". That was an interesting one.
Edit: as a side, I will point out that I'm comfortable having different opinions. I totally agree that things are not black and white. My girl friend and I do end up sharing the same general idea about right and wrong, we just have different methods of finding it.
