Never Attribute to Malice What You Can Attribute to Incompetence

Below is a link to a survey done in Canada claiming that many Canadians are falling victim to conspiracy theories; specifically the idea that Canadians think the government is evil and is out to get them.

In reality, these Canadians think the government is stupid, incompetent, and greedy.

When reading the survey, replace the term “conspiracy theory” with “government incompetence and greed” and you will be closer to the truth.

Although… those conspiracy “theories” are quite true.




Misinformation and Disinformation

You know you are in propaganda land when you hear certain words and phrases repeated over and over again.

The hot words of the day are “misinformation” and “disinformation.” Canada’s prime Ken doll, Justin Trudeau, loves uttering these words.

“Mis” means wrong, and “dis” means the opposite or not. So when the propagandists label some bit of info with these words they are saying that the info is not only wrong, but also the opposite of the truth.

But I don’t think they put that much thought into the meanings of “mis” and “dis”. The real reason they say both those words is to be repetitive. Repetition is hypnotic. Propaganda is hypnotic.

Don’t fall for it.
