Propaganda

5th January 2015

The linked article by Dr Peter Hammond is a download from the South African Reformation Society website (www.reformationsa.org).  It's a powerful exposé of the tactics used by propagandists, and by people who employ them, to spin their lies of deceit.   Many of the tactics described in the article can be applied to the issue of water fluoridation.

The Website entitled Activist Post has an interesting article which deals with the tactics used by mainstream media to keep us all quiet.  This is an eye-opener!  LINK

Propagandists spin the same old line, time after time after time.  Go to Propaganda, Public Relations and Poppycock to see how it's done.
