The New York Times: Goebbels-Styled Propaganda at its Best.

In order to become the master, the politician poses as the servant.
–Charles de Gaulle

Isn’t that what our political leaders are doing today: pretending to be our servants by offering to “take care of us” while the whole time they are building a cage around us? But perhaps you say that you are willing to live within this cage as long as the government meets your needs. If so, I would remind you of what C.S. Lewis had to say about that mistaken position:

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”

Now, if you follow my posts, you probably already know me well enough to wonder what got me going on this issue. Well, to be honest, this time, it was actually Rush Limbaugh. As many of you may know, I have been wary of Limbaugh for many years. I consider him to be at least as much a part of the problem as part of the solution, but he does stumble across some pearls of greater truth from time to time and today was one of those times. Specifically, he brought this piece to my attention, from the New York Times:

For Americans Under 50, Stark Findings on Health

There is so much wrong in this article, it’s hard to know where to start. Not only does it prove my assertion that Obamacare would be used to regulate and control all aspects of our lives, it also shows that they will claim to be doing whatever they want to do based on “science” and our own good. Nothing could be farther from the truth. This story, and all like it, is propaganda – pure and simple. Just look at what the story says:

The report also explored less conventional explanations. Could cultural factors like individualism and dislike of government interference play a role? Americans are less likely to wear seat belts and more likely to ride motorcycles without helmets.

America’s culture is at fault? American individuality is a reason why we die earlier? In other words, because we are a nation that values individual rights, liberty and the rule of law over government servitude, we are dying earlier than those nations where there people have submitted to being ruled? And it’s been “scientifically proven?” I call BS! This is nothing more than a clear demonstration of a co-ordinate, Goebbels-like propaganda campaign designed to support an open gun grab by this government, and to that, I say:

  1. It nerver ceases to amaze me the b/s a government will do. If the greed that so much of a draw that lying constantly is OK. I want the America where lying is still wrong, where people care, where laws are followed. Where good cops can’t be bought, where the military is still proud and protecting the USA. This government is all about lying and convincing the young of mistruths. Parents will have their hands full when these kids turn on them. It wouldn’t be a nice Ameirca it will be one that the young are lead by the nose by the lying elite. The olders and parents are just left to die.

  2. So much for science too. It’s propaganda because they have to get those all important NSF grants. Apparently since it’s warmer in the heat sink cities so they adjusted the countryside data as well. Apparently it’s just fine since “there was consensus for the adjustments.”

    Heaven forbid they should actually collect real data and base conclusions on that. Morons.

    • Sally,

      Or account for things like the fact that the U.S. takes better records than many other countries, so we can more fully quantify things. Or adjust for the fact that we have more hand gun violence, yet many of these “gun free” countries have much greater over-all violence. And then there’s the fact that they factor in deaths from the wars we are fighting and traffic accidents: neither of which are as statistically significant to the Europeans as they are here.

      Yeah, they don’t do science: they only slap the label on it and expect it to be accepted by us morons.
