To subdue the enemy without fighting is the supreme excellence. - Sun Tzu

I spit on you.

Take a look at yourselves. You're pathetic. One stupid lie from known liars, and you've gotten completely thrown off-topic.

This crap keeps happening. We work hard to make a big statement, and then they steal all the thunder with one easy jab. We have to stop letting them get under our skin.

It's summarized in the saying, "The Best Defense is a Good Offense". The proto-fascists are totally wrong on everything, but they don't have to defend any of it; they can just strike us whenever we try to attack them. They have no defense (because their ideas are indefensible), but they don't need it because we get too tripped up on their counter-attack.

The solution is simple: Ignore them. We can do that now. We have our own media, and better ideas, and there are millions of us. We should note what they say, but don't respond, don't even acknowledge. Just keep moving forward.

I respectfully disagree. Draw attention to the hypocracy. Do not get distracted by the lie, but use it to your advantage. We must train our own to perform the necessary verbal jujitsu to counter the lies effectively.

Nice blog, by the way.

In my opinion, we need to do both. Your ideas are not contradicting. What we need to do is draw attention to the lies of the media, and widen opportunities for independent media (not that we don't have enough).

We must also encourage people to think for themselves every chance we get. Just remind them "Believe half of what you see, and none of what you hear". When the citizens start doing their own research, they are impenetrable to any attempts at brainwashing.

This principle needs to become part of our culture in order for any sort of true democracy to exist.
