    Fake News is with us. Tensions between countries and individuals, eg Brexit. How much of what we see or hear on the media is affecting our world view. How does advertising affect us etc. Thoughs and discussion welcomed

    Every media outlet serves us some amount of fake news daily.
    I do believe there's something going on.
    Trust no one.....

    It begs the question, where do we go for unbiased news?

    I'd gladly put forth a suggestion if I had one.

    Oh most certainly!

    If you look at the biggest debtor in all ofbhuman history it is the USA with them owing the world trillions upon trillions of dollars but people have this strange belief that "everything is going to be okay" and for some strange reason everyone likes to live in this dream world.

    How can anyone have real faith in what is (claimed as ) the world biggest economy (which just seems like a big fat lie) when it owes more money than anyone else and could be on the verge of bankruptcy?

    It is extremely scary times we live in hey but let's just hope that cryptocurrencies become the norm so I can jump off that death trap dungeon! :)

    xD

    "everyone rolls eyes at Stinky" :D:D:D

    But yes on a more serious note... there is a heck of a lot of mind controlling going on!

    I think we need another Matrix movie!

    But despite all the mind controlling and biased news going on, we still surely live in a freer society than say, China or N.Korea.
    Or do we?!!

    I didn't think we needed another Matrix movie after the first one.

    I think we are given the illusion of freedom. The backdrop to this is subliminal influences through education the workplace and media outlets which are tending to become less diverse. Big corporations and privatisation have subtly influenced legislation to be.dropped or manipulated, gradually eroding rights and freedoms of the individual to challenge and protest. Unions have been weakened or are non existent. If anyone speaks out they afe sidelined or lose their jobs. Big corporations and bankers are sucking the lifeblood outof the economy but putting very little else of value back into it. I suppose we do have opportunities to speak out and freedom of speech, some will listen but others are too brainwashed to even care or take interest in what happens to them till its too late.

    yes.. from every angle ... good or bad... fact or fake...

    it is up to an educated mind... weed through the crap.
    and come as close to the truth as possible.

    my advice for crap stomping.. anything that is smells funny... just ignore it.
    you will end up .. with mostly facts...
    much closer than if you "give it a chance".

    a president that tries to get you to ignore the Porn star crap-story.
    gets you to accept that it is OK...
    the main fact is.. NOT fake!
    a man of power .. someone we trust with our safety and health:
    CHEATED!!! on his 3rd wife that just gave him new born!


    just ignore the smelly craps... and look at the main facts!
    Russia meddled with USA
    USA Executive branch is NOT protecting it's CITIZENS!

    It's worse over here in the UK, Russia (allegedly) is poisoning people with deadly nerve toxins.

    Russia poisoning.... allegedly????

    they did it.. and they want everyone to know it!
    russia can kill anyone.. and hide it... in many ways.
    but they did not..

    why did they use a toxic chemical agent.. that is extremely hard to get or make.
    only superpowers can get their hands on it? why???

    it is a message! simple.. straight forward.
    dont f_ck with me... we never forget.. and you will never get away!

    Well they're denying it, as you would expect. I said allegedly because nothing has been proved yet has it?
    But yes, this nerve agent is rare, and is hard to make. All the evidence points to Russian involvement.

    Man guys I think we are all in the an evil dream world created by ugly gubbermints because gubbermint is too big!

    We NEED a smaller gubbermint that doesn't cost an arm, leg, kidney, pancreas, gallbladder, liver and heart!

    I think the solution to this problem is a tiny gubbermint that has very little power (and especially cost!) so that people can breathe once again! :)

    Then all the talk about other madness will be silenced forever! :-D

    Those were Green Berets in the US. They kicked asses and took names but, and this is friggin' amazing. They'd leave a government for the people behind. Loved those guys.
    Why the US deactivated them, i just don't know? Damñ
