Rule by Fear and Hate enabled by the Media. America/Iran needs Enemies to keep oppressing us and the Press in both countries makes sure they find Enemies and keep the Peace Activists off the air.
PRESS-TV reports that at a conference held in Tehran, Mahmoud Ahmedinejad continued on his charm offensive.
Discussing the future of Palestine, he decided to throw in his analysis of the problems of the planet.
Zionists are the root cause of all wars, terror acts, crimes and destruction in the world.
Macaquerman points out on his thread that Mahmoud Ahmedinejad is Crazy and spreads Fear, Hate and Lies to keep power. Why because the Truth is obviously not enough to justify the oppression in Iran.
Mahmoud Ahmedinejad is a lizard brain ussing an emotional appeal to Fear and Hate to infect his people so that he can keep power. When people are in Lizard Brain mode they react they don’t contemplate action they act. Lies work best if people are to wound up to think.
Evolutionary psychologist Satoshi Kanazawa at the the London School of Economics and Political Science correlated data on these behaviors with IQ from a large national U.S. sample and found that, on average, people who identified as liberal and atheist had higher IQs. This applied also to sexual exclusivity in men, but not in women. The findings will be published in the March 2010 issue of Social Psychology Quarterly.
The IQ differences, while statistically significant, are not stunning — on the order of 6 to 11 points -
The study takes the American view of liberal vs. conservative. It defines "liberal" in terms of concern for genetically nonrelated people and support for private resources that help those people. It does not look at other factors that play into American political beliefs, such as abortion, gun control and gay rights.
"Liberals are more likely to be concerned about total strangers; conservatives are likely to be concerned with people they associate with," he said.
Given that human ancestors had a keen interest in the survival of their offspring and nearest kin, the conservative approach — looking out for the people around you first —
My bold I wonder if the more time you spend reacting in Lizard Brain mode, the less time you actually spend thinking things through and whether this effects intelligence or was the intelligence already effected the Birth or Environment debate?
However given enough Fear and Hate anyone can slip into Lizard Brain mode. Any Leader can keep power and do anything they want as the Wolf Pack unites against a threat.
Next Question is Fox News any different than Mahmoud Ahmedinejad?
Yes Bush has his puppets to say the nasty stuff for him so that his hands look clean in public he is the clean cut figurehead. Thats the only difference between the two. Notice that anytime we punish Mahmoud we prove his fantasies are right and we boost his Fear and Hate Lizard Power Hypnosis over his people.
How can we defuse him? (I’ll think on that question)
How can we defuse ourselves first is the better question a sick Doctor only infects his patients. Our hands are not really clean on this.
Remember Ann Coulter said kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity?
That comment was a trial balloon to see just how far Bush and the Main Stream Media could take the Fear and Hate fire without losing Americans support for the war.
Notice that while Ann was tut tuted by the media the media still gave her plenty of time on their shows while peace activists never got any air time. Notice Judy Miller still has her Pulitzer Prize for phony WMD stories that pushed us into war.
Mahmoud is a pawn for some person, group? trying to keep their hands clean just like Ann is for Bush and the GOP.
The powers in Iran much like the powers here make sure Ann/Mahmoud gets plenty of air time.
Notice that just like in America the sane peace side never gets the same amount of press. Despite the fact that ending the war is favored by the majority of Americans.
When the Media saw that their prowar coverage could not boost the war anymore and I suspect was actually hurting the support for the war the Press stopped covering the war 24/7.
I used to work nights at 1 am CNN used to have war updates that almost made me late for work all the time. Now all the networks recycle the days’s war stories at night and have dropped the amount of time they cover the war. Fox News the most Prowar Pro GOP network cut actual war coverage the most. But in their Commentary Fact Free Programs Masquerading as News they never let up on the lies
Leading me to conclude that our media is as controlled as Iran’s.
Notice the story about Christians getting targeted for killings in Iraq like American Nuns in South American Countries in the 80’s that story is not getting any air play here
The Nun killings in the 80’s under Reagan never made more than a blip in the news.
If killers trained from the American Military School for the Americas killing American Women, American Nuns can’t make the news in a world obsessed by 24/7 coverage of Missing White Women Stories then yes the Fix is in.
Notice the GOP lies about everything Death Panels, WMD, Tax Cuts during war will pay for themselves, Terry Schiavo was really alive etc. When you have to lie to make your case your case is weak.
When lying its best that you lie to people in Lizard Brain Mode and evoke Fear and Hate when you lie to them because lizards don’t evaluate what you say they just accept it and react. Threats are not to be tolerated Nothing Else Matters back the Leader!!! from all Criticism!!! ERRRGH
So create threats to distract the People with one hand as you abuse them with the other.
After all we can’t afford National Healthcare with a war going on thats a Non Starter politically.
However we can all pay more money for Private Health Insurance thats more expensive.
See because of the war we are to distracted to combat the lies. We let the Public Option become our politically possible solution that could pass even though it costs more.
And now even that compromise is off the table and we are going to be hosed.
