Propaganda is the dissemination of information aimed at influencing the opinions or behaviors of people. As opposed to impartially providing information, propaganda in its most basic sense, often presents information primarily in order to influence its audience. Propaganda often presents facts selectively (thus lying by omission) to encourage a particular synthesis, or gives loaded messages in order to produce an emotional rather than rational response to the information presented. The desired result is a change of the attitude toward the subject in the target audience to further a political agenda.

Socialism will not stand on its own merits and requires propaganda to maintain its' power over voters.

We have had 150 years to dissect socialism in theory. We have had 100 years to see socialism in action. Socialism, extensive government control over the economy, is a disaster in theory and a disaster in practice

Capitalism works by protecting private property and freedom of contract, thereby encouraging people to use their abilities and resources to produce goods and services that are most likely to be urgently demanded by others.

    well you need to maintain focus on the issue and keep it off the ad hominum,

    if you wish to stay unblocked, that is.

    I am not sure what your point is. Fox News does have a conservative bias. I just think it is funny that the Fox News pundits keep attacking MSNBC for their liberal bias.

    Rupert Murdoch did purchase myspace. I cannot find any link between myspace and SodaHead. Here is what Fef had to say.

    MSNBC is no more biased than FOX. At least MSNBC has hours of programming hosted by conservatives. Fox has none.

    And who gets their news from TV anymore? It's fail.

    WHAT FASCISM IS:
    Meritocracy or Timocracy:

    The Degree of which men and women manifest honor and merit in the service of their country is determent of their place in civil society.

    Sacrifice:
    Fascism now and always, believes in holiness and in heroism; that is to say, in actions influenced by no economic motive, direct or indirect."

    Nationalism:

    "Everything in the state, nothing outside the state, nothing against the state." OR "Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country."

    Cooperation or State Corporatism:

    Though private property and free trade must be upheld and defended, business ultimately serves the greater good of the state, and must be guided towards Just and Noble purposes.

    Virtue:

    If there is such a thing as "good" and "evil", if there is such a thing a a right and a wrong way; is the right way always the popular way, the way a majority votes? No! Usually it is not. The majority votes the easy way: The path of least resistance, and is thus exploited by the current elite. Fascism alone has the moral courage to do the right thing. For the state, no matter what. Above all, a Fascist believes in virtue and will thus tell you the truth, and not just what you want to hear! Truth, courage, integrity!

    I do not feel Fascist movement...

    Thats an interesting response, but in the 80's it was defined like this;

    Fascism
    "A philosophy or system of government that is marked by stringent social and economic control, a strong, centralized government usually headed by a dictator, and often a policy of belligerent nationalism." (From The American Heritage Dictionary)

    So yea, thus, "God and Country".

    Yes, they promote fascism as much, if not more so, than MSNBC or NBC.

    Save your rhetoric and bull for those less intelligent.

    LMAO! Is this a trick question? Hmmm let's see now...

    What has Obama and his politburo 'accomplished' in the worst (sorry first) 100 days...

    Laid a heavy, progressive, and graduated income tax through his 'porkulus' bill, effectively transferring the tax destination from the federal to the state level (that is, when federal money for these programs the states adopt dry up).

    Abolition of all right of inheritance (the start of which will happen with expiration of the Bush tax cuts).

    Centralization of all banks in the hands of the State,
    by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly.

    Centralization of the means of communication (LSM.. that would be PMSNBC, CNN, NYT, MoveOn.org, etc...) and transport (the President’s Car Czar) in the hands of the State.

    Extension of factories and instruments of production in the hands of the State (And who was it that told GM and Chrysler to restructure or merge with another company or be terminated? Ah, that would be 44! Please show me again in the constitution under article II exactly where the president has the authority to fire a CEO or put a company out of business?)

    All of these ideas were first postulated by a German philosopher in the mid-1800s. Come on, you know his name...

    Let's see fascism demands government control over all aspects of an economy and the individual. The exact opposite of conservative principle. And you see Fox news advocating this where? Doesn't more government involvement/control sound a lot more like the Obama administration to you?

    I must have missed the aspect of the Patriot act that had the government taking over entire sections of the economy. I am no fan of the act, but this reply makes no sense. Besides, my central point is that we are moving closer to fascism/socialism under this administration then ever before.

    you only THINK they aren´t controlling you. that´s why their plans are working. they have actually got you believeing that you are free to think for yourself, all while they shove their racist, bigoted, sexist, xenophobic propoganda down your throat and tell you its fact. they control you juts as much as democrats do, but at least they don´t lead you to believe that the nation is better off as a much of murderous mindless morons.
