Pravda printed propaganda because the Soviet Union made them, more or less at the point of a gun.
The American mainstream media prints propaganda because they want to.
Other than that, I can’t see a whole lot of difference. They both bolster the benefits of socialism and rail the horrors of capitalism. They both say how wonderful it is for one central government to run everything and the horrors of individual thought.
Remember these things:
1. Deceit does not always require a lie. Sometimes an element of truth is more deceiving than the lie.
2. For those who like their welfare: Not everyone who gives you things is your friend. Often, gifts are given with an element of control. Those who give you bread today, seek to tell your children how to live, and think. (Our forefathers gave us freedom. Do you want to give your children bondage and tyranny.)
3. We ought to do that which is right, regardless of the penalty. We ought not do that which is wrong, regardless of the reward.
To be sure, President Trump is trying to do that which saves lives and protects our freedom. The dummycrats are doing all they can to stand in his way. It is because of the open border that people seek to enter illegally, often costing their lives and freedom. They are in favor of laws that act like magnets, such as welfare for all and college for illegal aliens that encourage their long and dangerous trek. They make it almost impossible to send them back, which often endangers the lives of those who legally live here. And, by the way, it also endangers the lives of those who live here illegally.
It is the dummycrats that offer free things, all the while sizing control of the government. Once they control our government, the welfare will stop and the tyranny will begin. It is the pattern. It is the way it was in Russia. It is the way it was in China. It was what happened in Cuba and Venezuela. Now people who live in these countries risk their lives to live here. Once we become as they are, where do we go to seek freedom? To what land do we go to to think as we want without the thought police looking over our shoulder.
You say it won’t happen here as it did there. Have you taken a good look at our college campuses? The liberals already rule those institutions, there ones that are supposed to encourage free thought. The government is already telling us who we can do business with. The thought police are right around the corner. Soon they will tell us what we can or can’t preach in church. For that matter, they just might try to do away with the churches altogether.
One world government is what the socialists seek. It is what Karl Marx taught. It was his ultimate goal. It was to do away with war. But when the government that rules the world is bad, what recourse do freedom lovers have?
