So, this is a possible new experimental message board for folks looking to explore the practical impact of the 5-filters and the propaganda model (PM) on our daily lives. My initial thought is to expand the philosophy of the PM into discussions of how it affects
- the regular media and its messaging
- science publications and medicine
- environmentalism and environmentalists
- cultural identity
- power relationships around race and gender
Those are just my thoughts though. The discussions will grow organically of course.
In the spirit of exploring the usability of this board, I am going to make a few other posts to mention other important things for discussion, but I encourage all of you to post, comment, private message each other, and generally play around with this space to see how you like it.
