    by definition is giving only one side of the issue, that is, propaganda. Not every ad is so slanted, but the vast majority in the MSM are. So we get thousands of servings everyday, over 3,000 if I remember the last survey. Even if it's half of that, it still is a set up in everyday life, from kids upward, to give only the sunny side, to obscure the facts that don't favor them, the suppress the down elements of their story.  

    We live in a sea of lies. Dkos is an island - I didn't say perfect or without some taint - that gives us some perspective other than our own to see just how big the ocean is.

    I don't wanna be cynical, but it's damn hard not to be to some degree.  

    Lily Tomlin's sees this:

    Reality is the leading cause of stress among those in touch with it.

    I agree with vmkat that it probably is a natural protection, a shield against the human horrors of this world. It's probably a lie, too; we do care but sometimes we just can't.  

    Illumination is cheap around here.
