How America Created Its Shameful Wealth Gap


I'm passing this one along in the clear instead of in privately shared Aspects as I think its important that the message gets out that is contained within it. It will likely draw attacks from the various Alt-Right, White Supremist and Neo-Nazi crowd on some of the other pods (which often happens when I make posts in public on Diaspora) as they don't want facts known that don't fit their misinformation and lies they use to inflate their egos and recruit to their Hate Groups.

The #naked #truth

According to a 19th century legend, the Truth and the Lie meet one day. The Lie says to the Truth: "It's a marvellous day today"! The Truth looks up to the skies and sighs, for the day was really beautiful. They spend a lot of time together, ultimately arriving beside a well. The Lie tells the Truth: "The water is very nice, let's take a bath together!" The Truth, once again suspicious, tests the water and discovers that it indeed is very nice. They undress and start bathing. Suddenly, the Lie comes out of the water, puts on the clothes of the Truth and runs away. The furious Truth comes out of the well and runs everywhere to find the Lie and to get her clothes back. The World, seeing the Truth naked, turns its gaze away, with contempt and rage.
The poor Truth returns to the well and disappears forever, hiding therein, its shame. Since then, the Lie travels around the world, dressed as the Truth, satisfying the needs of society, because, the World, in any case, harbours no wish at all to meet the naked Truth.

Toxic Nostalgia Breeds Derangement

"In 2014, Peter Pomerantsev, a British journalist born in the Soviet Union, published 'Nothing Is True and Everything Is Possible', which drew on his years working in Russian television to describe a society in giddy, hysterical flight from enlightenment empiricism. He wrote of how state-controlled Russian broadcasting 'became ever more twisted, the need to incite panic and fear ever more urgent; rationality was tuned out, and Kremlin-friendly cults and hatemongers were put on prime time'."

"Since 2016, the book has enjoyed a new life among people struggling to make sense of the dual shocks of Brexit and Donald Trump’s victory. Both catastrophes demonstrated the triumph of xenophobic post-truth politics, and both were assisted by Russian information warfare. Pomerantsev’s book about Russia suddenly seemed prophetic about the rest of the world."

"Now, he’s written a penetrating follow-up, 'This Is Not Propaganda: Adventures in the War Against Reality', that is partly an effort to make sense of how the disorienting phenomena he observed in Russia went global. The child of exiled Soviet dissidents, Pomerantsev juxtaposes his family’s story — unfolding at a time when ideas, art and information seemed to challenge tyranny — with a present in which truth scarcely appears to matter."

"'During glasnost, it seemed that the truth would set everybody free', he writes. 'Facts seemed possessed of power; dictators seemed so afraid of facts that they suppressed them. But something has gone drastically wrong: We have access to more information and evidence than ever, but facts seem to have lost their power'."

The New York Times: Opinion | Toxic Nostalgia Breeds Derangement (By MICHELLE GOLDBERG)

 
Worth a read.

Opinion: The weaponisation of information is mutating at alarming speed

"Communication has been weaponised, used to provoke, mislead and influence the public in numerous insidious ways. Disinformation was just the first stage of an evolving trend of using information to subvert democracy, confuse rival states, define the narrative and control public opinion. Using the large, unregulated, open environments that tech companies once promised would “empower” ordinary people, disinformation has spread rapidly across the globe. The power that tech companies offered us has become a priceless tool in propagandists’ hands, who were right in thinking that a confused, rapidly globalising world is more vulnerable to the malleable beast of disinformation than straightforward propaganda. Whatever we do, however many fact-checking initiatives we undertake, disinformation shows no sign of abating. It just mutates."

"While initially countries that were seasoned propagandists, such as Russia and North Korea, were identified as the main culprits, the list of states employing disinformation is growing. China is apparently using disinformation to portray Hong Kong protesters as proxies of nefarious western powers and violent rioters, potentially to prepare the ground for more violent intervention to suppress the movement. India has been the host of constant disinformation campaigns, either ahead of the most recent elections or during the current standoff with Pakistan over Kashmir. Lobbying and PR firms have now professionalised online disinformation, as the cases of Sir Lynton Crosby’s CTF Partners in the UK and the troll farms in the Philippines indicate."

"The next stage in the weaponisation of information is the increasing effort to control information flows and therefore public opinion, quite often using – ironically enough – the spectre of disinformation as the excuse to do so. Internet shutdowns made headlines recently during India’s communications blackout in Kashmir but they have already become commonplace in Africa. Access Now has reported that internet shutdowns between 2016 and 2018 more than doubled. According to some reports, the app used by protesters in Hong Kong to coordinate, Telegram, also received a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack from mainland China."

The use of the word "Concentration Camps"

From Arnheim:

Americans tend to conflate the idea of “concentration camps” with “death camps” because that’s how the simplified version of the war’s history presents them. Most of the concentration facilities run by the Nazi regime eventually became “death camps,” especially once it was clear that the Reich was on the back foot—but on the most literal level, the purpose of a concentration camp is right there in the name: to concentrate a group of people (often considered “undesirable”) in a limited space for ease of both containment and control.

In that sense, Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez is absolutely correct about what we are doing to undocumented immigrants in this country: we are placing them in concentration camps. We needn’t be yanking their gold teeth, performing medical experiments on them, or shoving them all into a concrete room for a “shower” (please understand that I’m not making light of any of those things) in order for the fact that they’re in concentration camps to be true.

We did the same thing to Japanese-Americans during WW II—we just like to tell ourselves it was different from what the Reich was doing because we weren’t actively feeding anyone to furnaces.

Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez is absolutely correct to call the camps we’re detaining other human beings in “concentration camps.” She’s being called out because of the emotional resonance that term has in our history that exists entirely separately from its clinical meaning, but she is not wrong.

It’s just kinda galling to watch the people who’re freaking out over her (admittedly pathos-based-and-triggering) phrasing also praise Trump’s categorization of our undocumented immigration situation as “an invasion” (which is another pathos-steeped loaded label specifically designed to elicit an emotional response).
