A TED Talk on Military Propaganda

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.
