“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” — Joseph Goebbels
The most dangerous weapon in the world, in my opinion, is an innocuous-looking instrument that resides inside the confines of most modern homes. The instrument (most dangerous weapon) I am referring to is a television. You read that correctly.
Television is the most dangerous weapon in the history of modern civilization.
This seemingly harmless device is usually positioned in the corner of a homeowner’s living room, bedroom or kitchen. It can be affordably purchased in several sizes. It is routinely turned on for our enjoyment on any given day. Whether it is providing entertainment, news information, babysitting services for a child, or background music to keep us company, it relentlessly broadcasts content that most assuredly influences our understanding of what is or is not taking place in the world.
What comes through television in the way of media programming is controlled and operated by a select number of powerful networks that are designing and selling a carefully crafted perception of reality that is far removed from reality.
A television is also dangerous because it is not viewed by most people as a weapon. This makes the device even more dangerous.
Television, or more appropriately written “tell – a – vision” projects a continuous vision that is promoted by media companies that are owned and operated by very powerful corporations that have a genuine desire to deceive a gullible public.
While it might be accurate to write that an alleged nuclear bomb or genetically modified virus can harm many people, it is also truthful to write that a television and its associated media programming are far more dangerous weapons because they can influence human beings to think it is possible or appropriate to detonate a bomb.
Television may not be able to kill people, but it can go a long way in influencing one country’s citizenry to believe it is morally correct to wage war on another sovereign territory while at the same time crafting the clever illusion that the process is being done to bring about world peace.
Movies, news programs, sitcoms, talk shows, sporting events, commercials, and other media products viewed on television can hypnotize the masses into believing a false reality; one paid for and distributed by a corporate structure that has a definite agenda to promote war and death.
It is more important than ever before to be mindful that the harmless-looking television in our home is a lot more dangerous than we might think. It is, in fact, the most dangerous weapon in existence!
