19. Issues aren't "politics" .... "Politics is the shadow cast over government by corporations" ---
or you could say wealthy --

Granted, Frank Luntz is paid by the wealthy/corporations to form the propaganda which

serves to create an emotional reaction rather than true thought on issues --

And, though this RW proapganda has been going on for decades now it is only recently

that we began to pay any attention to it --

Rarely mentioend by liberals or in any non-fiction until probably ten years or so ago?


And, you can bet on it that RW proapganda works!!



When you see someone or a class of people being degraded or demonized, remember that's

the first step in denying their humanity and making their vulnerable to further attacks

on them -- intolerance and violence.


No matter which issue we look at -- from Native American, Women, Jews, Homosexuals,

Africans enslaved here -- it's the same story.
