Deconstructing propaganda

How to spot misdirection and hidden agendas; and the techniques used.

Mind control is real - it is simply controlling the narrative by controlling what you think you know, by controlling the information and how it is viewed. This is the info war.

Once written, this article will cover the following and more :

* framing

* 'loaded' or emotional words

* exaggeration

* omission / 'cherry picking' / partial truth

* statistics

* 'authorities' / 'trusted voices' / consensus (and consent)

* false 'balance'

* false assumptions

* false implications

All the ways one can be led to the wrong conclusions and then propagate false memes.
