The Doctrine of Change of Course
Program #CHON179. Recorded in New York, NY on November 20, 2003.
Great powers have always played cat and mouse games. The game is played to fool the target audience, the domestic population. Rulers cloak their motives behind some exalted principle. So the propaganda machinery churns out words and terms of mass deception. Perennial favorites are liberation, democracy, open markets, the national interest, self-defense and freedom. When they become too hackneyed then new ones are invented like weapons of mass destruction. The U.S. always invades countries in self-defense. As Orwell, says, War is Peace. The U.S. claims that it is different from previous empires, that it is morally superior. But few outside the country believe that. To carry out their agenda, states need an obedient citizenry. Don't ask too many questions. Watch TV, pay your taxes and march to war.
