A TED Talk on Military Propaganda

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mGR34pfWV5k

Scott Taylor runs the Espirit de Corps magazine in Canada. His TEDx lecture in the video from last week isn’t just about the Canadian military, though — it pays mind to the United States’ use of language and terminology during war, the United Nations’ during the conflict in Libya and even how Taylor was defined by the Iraqis who once held him hostage.  (h/t the Ottawa Citizen)

    WE SEND OUR TROOPS TO IRAQ, BUT DON’T TREAT OUR VETERANS WELL WHEN THEY RETURN. WE SEND BILLIONS OF FOREIGN AID TO THE UKRAINE, AND OTHER COUNTRIES, BUT THE SENATE WON’T PASS THE UNEMPLOYMENT EXTENSION BILL FOR THE THREE MILLION OF UNEMPLOYED FAMILIES WITHOUT BENEFITS SINCE LATE LAST DECEMBER. THESE FAMILIES HAVE FALLEN INTO FINANCIAL RUIN, MANY ARE WITHOUT HOMES. THE REPUBLICANS HAVE INTENTIONALLY DELAYED AND POSTPONED THE VOTE UNTIL THE BILL WOULD BECOME DIFFICULT TO PASS. THESE ARE OUR SO CALLED “PUBLIC SERVANTS” IN ACTION THESE DAYS. THEY ALL NEED TO BE VOTED OUT OF OFFICE FOR FAILING TO SERVE THE PEOPLE. WE NEED A NEW CHANGE IN THE COMING ELECTIONS.

    Good V I should certainly pronounce, impressed with your web site. I had no trouble navigating through all the tabs as well as related information ended up being truly simple to do to access. I recently found what I hoped for before you know it in the least. Reasonably unusual. Is likely to appreciate it for those who add forums or something, website theme . a tones way for your client to communicate. Nice task..

    I’ve been surfing online more than 3 hours these days, yet I never discovered any interesting article like yours. It is beautiful worth sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made just right content as you probably did, the net can be much more useful than ever before.
