Medea Benjamin has a piece about the war mongering of the mainstream press. See http://www.commondreams.org/views/2014/10/10/fourth-estate-flames-us-medias-award-winning-war-propaganda
There is a constant stream of “be very afraid of Muslims, we must bomb that country, no this country, no, the other country again.” Our economy, with most of the good paying manufacturing jobs sent after slave labor abroad, is increasingly dependent on what is euphemistically called “defense spending.”
This combination of a war economy and war propaganda hasn’t been this organized anywhere on the planet since the Third Reich.
Don’t Be Bamboozled! Stop the Wars!
