    OH please! Everyone here does. We are here to voice our opinions of what we think is, was, and should be, and we want to be heard, ie propaganda, and since it's OUR perspective that we hope will influence readers, if not fellow members, there's an agenda.

    Of course we create propaganda. But it is another thing when you deliberately distort the truth.

    There are very few "truths" that are undeniably verifiable. Everything else is really perspective based on the facts, psuedo-facts, lies, and misdirections of others.

    For example, here's a thread that's clearly propaganda. "Class warfare" is no longer working for the O'Reilly and his minions, so they are trying to get a new catch phrase off the ground and his minions are doing his biding. Clearly it's not a lie, but it's also not the truth, evenso it's propaganda.

    That is an example of a deliberate distortion of the truth. I have noticed that one technique used is to put forward a hypothetical in the guise of conveying a message. In that case the idea that is put forward is that those protesting Trevyon, etc. are trying to overthrow the government. The poster does not explicitly say that, but the hypothetical is framed in such a way that it gives the appearance that such protestors are trying to do that.

    I'd bet dollars to doughnuts they already do.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    That could indeed be the case. It could also be that some who post here are government agents in disguise, or that work with government agents in some fashion.

    IF our government had a viable efficient way of doing this . .Then .. yes .. But, I think not that people and computer systems have advanced that much .
