i can't really disagree with the OP's first sentence because we live in a capitalistic world which is based upon marketing, which of course is propaganda...

beyond that the guy seems to have an agenda ..... and where exactly does he get his information and how does he know that it's the truth?


I obtain information from a multiplicity of sources and historical documents. That includes many sources from outside the US and from numerous writers. Through this one must be using critical thinking skills and observing historical patterns. As well fundamental questions should always be asked such as, "Who benefits?" If that's an "agenda" I would suggest more adopt it.

"If you knowingly tell lies and get paid for it you are not lying, just doing ones job."

A widely held belief in America


...and what source is that from????

btw, your "multiplicity of sources and historical documents" are no more guaranteed to be the truth than anything else.

not disagreeing that fundamental questions should always be asked but your delivery is a bit on the arrogant side


BTW do you know what a logical fallacy is? You've just thrown two into the fray. One is the relativist fallacy- arguing that "nothing can be known" is not an argument at all- it's a typically evasive way for somenoe who can't argue their point to avoid the points being made- we may as well say the "sky is green."

The other is basic ad hominem- arguing on perceived tone, on one's "delivery" is not an intelligent counterpoint- it's a logical fallacy. That too is classic avoidance.
