If the power elites didn’t need the consent of the public to rule, they wouldn’t have to lie constantly about their reasons for war. What if its 1984 and you don't know it because you haven't recognized who big brother is yet.

saint lincoln is up there in the pantheon of those who must never be doubted and saint obama is vying for inclusion. i once bought the saint lincoln thesis but in recent years have also been seeing the point of those who have a different take on his reign;


If you’ve listened to me for any length of time, chances are you’ve heard me refer to the three-by-five card of allowable opinion.
As long as you stay confined to the range of opinions on that card, you’ll be in good standing with the media and the establishment.
It’s fun to observe someone who’s never once strayed from that card confront ideas that are nowhere near it. Their brains genuinely do not know what to do.
A spectrum of political options running from Mitt Romney to Hillary Clinton are all their brains are programmed to handle.
This happened recently with a 3 x 5 card fellow named Elie Mystal.
He was outraged that Josh Blackman, a professor at South Texas College of Law, asked students on a constitutional law exam to consider some of the actions of Abraham Lincoln during the so-called Civil War, and imagine a scenario in which articles of impeachment are brought against a President Lincoln who survived the attack by John Wilkes Booth.
Blackman asks students to assess the strengths and weaknesses of the arguments raised in these hypothetical articles.
Mystal is outraged at the exam questions, and proceeds to launch into a victimology routine: these questions are “racist” and disadvantage black students, etc........https://www.lewrockwell.com/2019/01/thomas-woods/law-prof-pilloried-for-exam-question-on-lincoln-and-the-constitution/
