best war ever


Go watch this web movie! www.TheBestWarEver.com

John Stauber & Sheldon Rampton have a new book out, The Best War Ever: Lies, Damned Lies and the Mess in Iraq. These are the guys from PR Watch, and I have long been a fan of their books, including Toxic Sludge is Good for You, one of the books that led me down this path to full-time environmental health advocacy (what I do when I'm not doing most of the stuff I blog about).

The concept from this book that freaks me out the most: infectious propaganda: When you actually believe your own spin, and it leads you down the path to defeat.

  1. i watched
    the little clip-
    thought the same
    thing...
    infectious propaganda...
    when you lie about
    something
    so much
    you start to belive
    your own lies...
    it's damn scary!
