After many decades of lies and deception, the right have become increasingly adept at using propaganda to achieve their political objectives. The most obvious system of propaganda is religion, which uses mythology to try to instill ethics into an unsophisticated population – an absolutely terrible idea. We don’t need ethics – good and evil don’t exist, (unless we’re talking about evil republicans and wholesome democrats). All of these absolutisms imposed upon us by conservatives are designed to control what we do and think. But progressives know better – we don’t need any stinking rules! Society functions much better without them.
At the root of all this propaganda, I believe, is the masking of a subjective term as an objective one, or vice versa. Take for example the term “gender” which we all know now is a subjective concept, determined by how you feel. Conservatives pretend that this is a biological term and that it is fixed and cannot be changed – a total lie! Millions of people have been convinced that gender can be objectively determined at birth, even though science says that it’s a social construct! Clearly gender, race and species are all subjective terms, which describe how people feel and what they choose to identify as – they have no grounding in biology or the physical world.
Possibly the worst piece of propaganda of all though is the idea that some actions are “good” and others are “evil”. There is no such thing as good and evil! Good and evil are just concepts used to control what people should and shouldn’t do. Progressives NEVER tell people what they should and shouldn’t do! Sure, we condemn people morally, but we have no consistent system of ethics and will completely flip flop based on the accredited narratives we are fed. For example, we were against Bush’s wars in the Middle East, and we protested about these, but we weren’t against Obama and Hillary’s wars in the Middle East – these were humanitarian interventions! So we didn’t just create some magical concept called “evil” and cast all unjust wars under that banner. We changed our minds based on the prevailing narrative!
Now let’s consider some true objective terms. Consider the word “accredited” – now that’s an actual objective term. If an idea or narrative is accredited, it is approved of and promoted by the vast majority of experts and global leaders, and cannot be disputed. “Accredited” is a universal term, grounded in reality, just like “the greater good” and “the will of the people”. If it wasn’t, then wouldn’t it be silly to have a publication called “The Accredited Times”? If accredited was just a matter of opinion, then people could choose whether to recognize our accreditation or not. But the narratives we promote are approved by the majority of experts and power-brokers, and therefore people must accept them as universally accredited.
“Equality”, “fairness” and “tolerance” are also objective terms with no subjective element. If these were truly subjective terms, people might accuse us of trying to impose our own subjective preferences on others by masking them as moral standards! Do you really think progressives would do this?
The right seriously needs to reform its ways and stop seamlessly conflating subjective and objective terms in order to mask their true agenda. This is the 21st Century, and we know better than that. It’s time for conservatives to start living in the Current Year and realize that there is no such thing as absolute truth (including this statement)!
