It’s not that one doesn’t believe Russia is capable of propaganda, it’s that one believes the US government is similarly aberrant. Recalling a statement from a Russian citizen before Russian views were censored away from the US public, “it’s not that Russian people aren’t aware their government lies to them, it’s that Russian people are aware of the lies, unlike American people”. But then, when one is “exceptional”………
First democracy requires a Free Press. War crimes should be exposed.
Lee Camp is a censored comedian who has raised the topic more than a few times, that armed law enforcement focused on traffic violations may be overkill. But this discussion isn’t often heard from corporate-owned-government run MSM, due to governmental and corporate censorship. Protecting and serving doesn’t require military process. –
The topic of violence is loud today. Police states have been the characteristic of communist nations from capitalist nation perspectives. Recently people are dying in places that have typically been considered public in our nation.
As I watch Katy Tur interview Byron Donald on MSNBC on 1/26/2023, one appreciates her attempts to clarify his rhetoric. Especially strained is Mr. Donald’s statement that we must never cut taxes on the oligarchs, because they are the money makers (paraphrase).

C-Span hosted CSIS Keith Jones this morning on the topic of a diminishing military capability for the USA. An inability to find this on C-Span, the name may be wrong, but one believes it is correct.

And then he said that the time frame by which Ukraine would receive the Abrams tanks may
Control of information promotes Establishment stories.
Is this about policing or the environment? You choose. Some people believe desecration of the environment is promoted within a strong police state.

Have you heard the USSR Brezhnev joke ….From the book The Gates of Europe…..”But the Soviet economy was in no condition to accelerate anything other than rates of decline…….” ‘We were on the edge of an abyss………but since then we have made a huge step forward’……”
You won’t ask the questions if you don’t hear the stories.
History as taught in the US educational system is written from the perspective of the USA. The globalism that has been about economics has conveniently overlooked FACTS that would more realistically inform about the role of humanity in wars. While admitting that Russia is the enemy and shouldn’t have attacked Ukraine, one would be intellectually dishonest if one didn’t recognize the price paid by Russia in WWII, and that in the USA has been superimposed by a presumption of US supremacy in challenging Hitler.
A functioning journalist working within the framework of principles of a Free Press could easily debunk Russian propaganda with an interview with Ukrainian Alexsey Arestovich.
Acknowledgement of spirit may be the first step to challenge addiction. Addiction comes in many forms. Advertising thrives on addiction.
