PHOTOS REACH THRU THE LIE MATRIX-USE THEM! (graphic warning)
Edited on Sun Nov-14-04 06:31 PM by JohnOneillsMemory
Fight fascism with PHOTOS of the HORROR in the OIL WAR.

If we let people see that kind of thing, there would never again be any war.
-Pentagon official explaining why the U.S. military censored graphic footage from the Gulf War

That's how you make Americans "visualize" the oil war in it's REAL form, not the false word matrix. Humanize by SHOWING HUMANS. Simple.

The blood is already spilled and merely showing it in photos has the same cogent effect as the actual violence.

THIS IS WHY THEY HATE US, NOT FOR 'OUR FREEDOMS'

(I saw this as a huge poster on a Chicago street with the caption "this is not the enemy")

There are many sources for reality-based photos to use. Like this-
http://www.robert-fisk.com/iraqwarvictims_page1.htm

Our brains are hard-wired to feel stress when we see others in stress.
Use this tool to illustrate the bloody truth and get our Fallow Merkins to react. Remember the Kim Phuc in Vietnam photo? It is iconic and the reason the Pentagon doesn't let us see what they do to people anymore because we wouldn't stand for it.

Now that the Pentagon has issued a manual on fighting insurgencies for the first time since Vietnam, we very much need a manual on how to combat fascism before the steel doors shut tight even if Kerry is allowed to take his victory.

We must get smarter about countering the propaganda and reaching the hearts and minds of our Fallow Merkins. 'Persuasion technology' is how Nazi bastards steered the US population into the mess we're in. Learn what works and why or keep riding in the handbasket!

George Lakoff's work on 'framing' issues in language that reach the primal parts of the brain:
1)self-protection
2)protection of whatever is defined as family.
3)the value of hard work to achieve #1 and #2 called 'discipline'

http://www.berkeley.edu/news/media/releases/2003/10/27_...
Understand psychology, history, language themes, and media messengers who will help save us from the Mayberry Machiavellis and the Fuelocracy.

The military calls this 'force magnification.' That is, getting help from a few important individuals who can get the cooperation of the larger population.

Very cogent photos and pamphlets need to be everywhere all the time, malls, churches, highway overpasses, all the places where we can still move freely to reach our Fallow Merkins.

3. Awful!!!!
I have seen that pic before, and however disgusting I think it is, it needs to be shown. As a parent I am horrendously hurt by what I see. Does anybody know if the child is dead or did she survive? I know she is misisng a foot, but well, I just would like to know. Thanks.
