    Are people becoming MORE or LESS intelligent?   It seems that people are operating from pure vitriolic emotions instead of assessment logic.  Your thoughts?

      World wide people are rebelling against the economic inequality between rich and the rest of society.

        Too true.  Greed, envy, jealousy - it is often the less "noble" emotions that we give free rein to.

      Propaganda works because it taps their deeper emotions. It enflames people.

      That's why fake news sites are so dangerous.

        I agree. I refuse to watch ABC NBC CBS MSNBC or CNN. or PBS.  I dont watch Fallon or Colbert and probably some others, I dont know the names of.  Liberal love fests make me nauseous.

          Fallon & Colbert are not news shows. Where do you get your news from? Facebook feed?

            They arent comedy or entertaining either. Propaganda does not limit itself just to the news.
