  1. When push comes to shove, would anyone expect anything different? Yes, it’s mostly lies but if the U.S. were in a war, would the people be told the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth? I doubt it.

    1. Hello Nan. I do expect that Russia would continue to have state TV propaganda as I do expect other fascist government to do so. I agree you are right that the people in the US could be misinformed if they only consume one media. First let me define what I mean.

      Fascism!
      Fascism is a form of far-right, authoritarian ultranationalism characterized by dictatorial power, forcible suppression of opposition, and strong regimentation of society and the economy that rose to prominence in early 20th-century Europe. Here are words that are related words for fascism, like: dictatorship, oppression, authoritarianism, totalitarianism, Nazism, fascist, despotism, racism, nationalism, autocracy, and one-party rule.

      I wanted to all the above because I am going to talk about countries we all can agree that are fascist but we have to realize the US Republican party fits that definition and has its own propaganda media arm that doubled as state TV during the tRump administration and has at all other times served as the media department of the Republican party. We need to be very careful and understand that if the Republicans get control the US will become just like Russia and other authoritarian nations where the government controls the people instead of the people controlling the government.

      So Back to Russia. Putin has gotten rid of the very last independent news source available to the people. State run media is super dangerous as we can see in real time with the misinformation the Russian people are getting about the Ukraine war. But think about the people in North Korea, they have no outside source of news other than what the government tells them. Think if Fox news or NewsMax was the only information people in the US got? tRump would be still be president and Democrats would be illegal. But we forget the countries that used to be democracies that are now authoritarian fascist government. Hungary, Poland, Egypt, Turkey, just to name a few larger ones off hand. Here is a great map for those who want to see at a glance the change and threats to democracy world wide. https://www.economist.com/graphic-detail/2022/02/09/a-new-low-for-global-democracy

      Hey Nan. TMI? Sorry it was a subject on my mind and I ran with it. Not exactly what you asked but worth knowing.
