Season 1[ edit ] The series is set in a post-apocalyptic near-future, in the year Fifteen years earlier, in the yeara worldwide event known as "The Blackout" caused all electricity on Earth, ranging from computers and electronics to car and jet engines, to be disabled permanently. As a result, trains and cars stopped where they were, ships went dead in the water, and aircraft plummeted from the sky and crashed. In the years after the Blackout, people adapted to this new world without electricity.
Propaganda Machine "The business of the journalists is to destroy the truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to vilify, to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread" In America, John Swinton, then the pre-eminent New York journalist, was the guest of honour at a banquet given him by the leaders of his craft.
Someone who knew neither the press nor Swinton offered a toast to the independent press. Swinton outraged his colleagues by replying, "There is no such thing, at this date of the world's history, in America, as an independent press.
You know it and I know it. There is not one of you who dares to write your honest opinions, and if you did, you know beforehand that it would never appear in print.
I am paid weekly for keeping my honest opinion out of the paper I am connected with. Others The patriot movie compared to american revolution you are paid similar salaries for similar things, and any of you who would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the streets looking for another job.
If I allowed my honest opinions to appear in one issue of my paper, before twenty-four hours my occupation would be gone. The business of the journalists is to destroy the truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to vilify, to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread.
You know it and I know it, and what folly is this toasting an independent press? We are the tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes.
Propaganda Machine There are quite a few things that could be said about it and that is one of the reasons we did not comment on this before.
But Benya keeps insisting and projecting guilt on all those who decided to make his "earthquaking revelations" of quite questionable value and validity, made for the purpose yet to be determined, available in full as soon, as they are published, which does make quite some sense.
Why shouldn't some people have a chance to know what is going on as soon as it comes out, just because they either do not have a computer and have to read it in some public place, or do not have money to spend on it, or may not even have a bank account, or live in some country where the kind of money he charges is comparable to their monthly incomes, not even mentioning the issues of identification of "undesirables" or considering that all his big words and projections are not worth more than a used condom to be thrown into a garbage bin once is usefulness expires?
How corrupt one needs to be to even conceive of an idea to place a prices sticker on nothing less then Truth itself, if there is any to begin with? Is it available only to some "chosen few", and not to mere "mortals" that either can not afford to pay or do not even consider that all these wild stories of Benya are worth a penny?
Is there any evidence that all his concoctions, inventions and "prophecies" are anything more than a plain show for the "fools" and a "herd of sheep", "full of fury, signifying nothing"? Why does he need to charge money for his grand concoctions and "revelations" of all kinds if not to make something fake look like something really valuable?
There is another interesting question with quite some consequences: Let us go through it point by point. This is ALL about money, "profits" and gain on purely commercial level and it isn't even a real solution to a problem of supporting the creative people regardless of the "commercial value" of their work.
The copyright law, as it stands, is not even meant to support the creativity.
With sufficient marketing hype, nearly anything may be pushed to the levels of mass hysteria resulting in sales of utter garbage, and even utmost evil, in millions of copies. But genuinely creative works are not guaranteed to bring enough income to even support the most basic needs of the authors and there are plenty of examples of it.
But the point here is that Benya poses as some kind of a "warrior for Truth", nothing less. So, the question arises: Is he trying to SELL you the allegedly "inside information" about the evil most profound and all sorts of schemes to take over the world and parasite on everything, which every human Being has the Creator's given RIGHT to know?
Can you imagine Jesus Christ charging you money for the Truth and for entrance into the "Kingdom of God"? How can one even conceive of an idea of charging money for the Truth? Because if we take out the information from the "sources", then what will be left is mostly his wild guesses about some grand schemes, at best.
So, the "beef" in his reports is not his own ideas about it, but the information, allegedly told to him by his extensive network of "sources", and even there, it isn't even clear if those alleged facts are not mere disinformation. So, what is he selling you? What is he doing by charging you money to know the Truth, as soon as it comes out?
Is he merely trying to "survive", like any "mortal"? Then why not "go get a job" to earn enough money during the day and do all your great writings and investigation after hours, just to keep your Soul clean and trustworthiness on a proper level?
Just because the media is corrupt to the bone and marrow and sold their souls to the evil, does it mean you can start charging money for nothing less than Truth?
What kind of logic is this? The very fact he charges money for someone else's information, first of all, taints that information and makes it not trustworthy. Simply because if one has the monetary interests in the matters, there is no guarantee that the information will be pure enough, undistorted and not exaggerated, or made more colorful, just to make it look more "valuable" and "insightful", simply to attract the customers, which is what you can actually see in every single of his writings, allegedly based on information, provided to him by others or found on some web site.
Essentially, he is no different than a parrot, repeating someone else's words, and arrogant, blind, cunning and dishonest enough to even charge the money for it, as though it was his own original work and creative ideas, which it is not, at least for the most part, beyond some wild exaggerations and inventions of all kinds, very little of which happens to turn out at the end the way he painted it.Angel in the Whirlwind: The Triumph of the American Revolution (Simon & Schuster America Collection) [Benson Bobrick] on alphabetnyc.com *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers.
