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.

East Lake 东湖, ShaoXing 绍兴, ZheJiang province
ShàoXīng is a water-town not far from HangZhou. The East Lake is situated six kilometers (four miles) to the east of the historic ShaoXing city. The exquisite crescent-shaped lake is hemmed in by a hill formed of bluestone, a material widely used in building houses, bridges and roads. Stoneworkers have quarried from this hill since the Han Dynasty (206 BC-220 AD) and over time the hill became hollowed out, leaving only steep cliffs, a deep pool and a number of grottoes.
