Centuries ago, when a king wanted to go to war, he simply did so. What his subjects thought was irrelevant. But today, in modern democracies, a country’s leaders cannot simply go to war. They must convince their citizens there is good reason to make war. This has been aptly characterized as “manufacturing consent”. That is accomplished by propaganda. And no nation on earth has misleading its citizens down to a science better than the U.S. government. The propaganda America has received regarding Islam is a perfect example. As long as you keep buying it, you will remain the vassal – the fool – of the manipulators.
