  •  Cass Sustein - justification of propaganda + BO (8+ / 0-)

    He is one of Obama's closest advisors

    A name floated as a nominee to the Supreme Court

    I see that he shows up at the head of this diary as saying that climate change is not that big a deal.

    I recommend you go to the diary linked by Liberty Equality Fraternity and Trees

    I wanted to add that Cass came up recently as the co-author of a report published by Harvard Univ Law School titled "Conspiracy Theories." And how to combat them.

    For example, the attacks on OWS were because the 1% feared what would happen is obviously a conspiracy theory. OWS was infiltrated even before the first big event in NYC, another conspiracy theory. Then to believe that there were coordinated efforts at the national level to disrupt and discredit OWS, you would be totally over the top as a conspiracy theorist.

    There needs to be systematic government and media efforts to discredit conspiracy theories like this.

    Here in dailykos, there has been a running series of diaries by Ray Pensador about propaganda.

    Well, Cass has written a piece on how to run an effective propaganda campaign using the meme of Conspiracy Theories.

    Here is the link
