"Empire" is a euphemism for "fascist dictatorship"

Something to think about...
It's funny how so many liberals and progressives have started parroting about the "Empire" - it's on everyone's lips.

So you're probably wondering why this is so funny.

"Empire" is simply a nice sounding word for "fascist dictatorship". Just as a "strategic hamlet" could also be called a concentration camp.

Now how can so many people not realize that they are spreading a vicious piece of counter-revolutionary propaganda?

Well, because they all watch television, which trains one's mind to passively suck in information without critically questioning everything one hears. And many of them have gone to colleges and universities, where they are taught to fit in, and memorize controlled bits of information, and most importantly, they are taught to blindly trust authority.

Turn off your television permanently! Read and question everything you here. Cut off all corporate media channels from your consciousness. And yes, PBS and NPR are both corporate media channels. Think about life without television. Can you even imagine it? Does that scare you?

what I find most interesting - 25.Jan.2004 01:10

-

is the way that "fascist", dictatorship", "empire", "Hitler", "repression" and similar names, words and phrases are so much more openly mentioned in 21st century america . . .

what has happened in the past 2-3 years to cause this, I wonder . . . or could it all just be a figment of our imagination . . . ? ;-)

Yes, the US bombing of Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Grenada, Panama, Libya, Iraq and Afghanistan are just figments of paranoid leftist's imaginations. Third World peasants are just imagining that their families have been tortured and butchered by US-trained and financed death squads. The people of Chile and other countries just imagined their governments were overthrown by the CIA. Iraqis just imagine their children are torn apart by cluster bombs and poisoned with depleted uranium. You are the one living in a fantasy world- one created especially for gullible people like you by the corporate media. The United States is the greatest purveyor of violence and terrorism in the world today.

Could it be that the people who YOU have derisively labeled as "liberals and progressives" are perhaps more intelligent than you think??? What I find hilarious is the logic used by Anarcho-Holier-Than-Thou muffheads like you, eric.

The television is used as a mind control device to brainwash you. This is a fact not an idle musing. The longer you turn it off the saner your thinking will become.
