‘Getting the Facts’ is a short educational film from 1953.
‘Getting the Facts’ is typical of the educational films once shown in America’s public elementary schools.
From the film:
“The way we make decisions in our democratic system has a profound effect on our welfare and happiness. Whether we’re dealing with a personal problem or a business matter, whether we are deciding on our schools, our taxes or any other community problem, the first thing we have to do is get the facts, the next step is to consider other opinions based on the facts and the final step is to weigh opinions with understanding and objectivity.
These standards apply to everyone.”
We cannot make good decisions when we refuse to base our decisions on facts.
If you haven’t read the Mueller Report you can’t know what Mueller’s investigation found.
Do yourself and your country a favor and read the Mueller Report.
Every day is another month of corruption and narcissism and treason.
There is no Trump without Putin and the chaos and random violence that
plagues our lives the result of a long-term and ongoing Russian attack on American Democracy.
Putin’s declaration of war is a classic gaslight: we elected his puppet, he didn’t make us to vote for it; or did he?
Vladimir Putin’s Information Warfare is a psychological theater of cruelty where the people of the ‘target nation’ are convinced to turn on each other each other, while a small cadre of criminal oligarchs steal their wealth and freedoms.
To accomplish a ‘regime change’ Putin unleashes an arsenal of psychological weapons designed to distort our perceptions of reality.
An active measure can be anything, such as inciting or paying anonymous
thugs to attack a beloved performer while shouting right-wing slogans.
I am not saying that his is what happened to Jussie Smollett; I’m saying the trump administration and the GOP have done nothing to protect America from Russian Active Measures so we have no way to be sure.
Nothing is at it seems until we know all the facts and see them verified by multiple national and international news outlets.
If you see appeals to emotion and divisive propaganda ask yourself why you’re seeing it.
Be angry that we have a president who incites violence when you hear reports of hate crimes against gays and people of color; don’t be angry with anonymous straight white people.
