“From Pro-war to Pro-Lockdown” – This week 21WIRE LIVE host Patrick Henningsen is joined by Dr. Piers Robinson, co-director of the Organisation for Propaganda Studies, and also co-founder of the Working Group on Syria, Propaganda and the Media.
In this episode we are discussing the power of propaganda, and role of the Government-Media complex in gaslighting the public in relation to major political and geopolitical events which dominate our news cycle, society and our lives. We also look at the the influence of Edward S. Herman and Noam Chomsky’s text, Manufacturing Consent, its affect on the antiwar discourse, and also ask why its principle thesis hasn’t yet been applied to political aspects of the global pandemic, specifically in the areas of civil liberties, lockdowns and bio surveillance.
