  • My most recent thoughts on SLAYAR

    i've been thinking a lot lately about SLAYAR, and his possible connections to the arab world and news organizations... he got on tv on sportscenter first, and then cnn bought espn in a multi billion dollar merger... and that's right around when SLAYAR got insanely popular on the internet... well just the other day i talked to him online and he sent me a pic of him, and he was rockin an al-jazeera shirt... so yeah guys i think this racist might now be making use of his powers in the arab world also... i think the link of cnn slayar and al jazeera is something akin to a kind of brainwashing...

    I'm not trying to compare CNN and Al Jazeera... The reason I posted in this thread was because I thought it was pointless for people to have the attitude that 'we're brainwashed just as much as them.' My only point was that we can never know if WE are brainwashed or not, so to act like we are is just to say blind words. It's like if anyone thinks something different than us we say they're brainwashed.
    Maybe people over there see pictures of Saddam in his underwear in the same way we see people burning the American flag. I just think it's going too far to talk about 'being brainwashed.' I think it's hard to distinguish cultural 'brainwashing' from 'brainwashing' that's simply reporting things that aren't true. I don't like that word, that's the only reason I posted in here.
    I think there IS something to be said about how many people in some arab countries have a HUGE fear of speaking their mind and a HUGE fear of what the government might do to them if they speak up. I think THAT'S terrible because I hate to see people fear some leadership for no reason except because the leadership wants more power over the people. I think there ARE evils going on over there, there is a LOT of censorship and there is a massive suppression of the individual in the name of leaderships that basically tell the people they are right by law. I think there IS something wrong in not having such freedom, and I still DO support the ideas of democracy and freedom over there. But I don't like the idea of a whole world or a whole society being totally brainwashed. Maybe a lot of it IS the deliberate feeding of false information from the governments to the people, but things like not showing Saddam in his underwear are cultural things, not suppressed facts. In Japan they aren't allowed to film pubic hair (or something like that), but it's not because they're brainwashed. Or, more exactly, it's not because of some mass suppression of people's ideas.
    I'll say that it is terrible that there is a massive fear of arab governments by arabs. And that there is a suppression of individual ideas which probably should be stopped. But the fact that people say certain things on camera and other things off camera isn't evidence that that person is 'brainwashed,' it's evidence of FEAR. And fear that shouldn't be there. But I think it's really hard to talk of who is brainwashed especially since we can never know if WE are brainwashed. I think our own media has its own biases, and they don't even have to be intentional. All I'm saying is that we shouldn't simply trust a single source (like many people that read prisonplanet do) because then we face a similar ignorance ourselves.
    We can see that people here don't fear the government as much as people in other parts of the world do. And we know that freedom over there isn't where it should be... And it's probably reasonable to assume that it's because the information the people over there get... But I just don't think there's any reason to use the word brainwashed, because if anyone told you that the western world was brainwashed you simply wouldn't believe them. WE can't know we're brainwashed. I think to call a group of people (or a 'world') brainwashed is to treat them like drones and to refuse further talk. I think that's not a good attitude and I think if we want to get anywhere we should be looking for a common ground of communication and not simply waiting until they 'come around' to our way of thinking. There is a difference between culture and facts, but sometimes it's hard for us to tell that difference. So I think instead of calling a whole group of people brainwashed, it's more important to discredit actual reported facts that come out of their media outlets instead of simply refusing to listen.
    For the most part I agree with you, I just don't like the use of the word brainwashed... and it's a hard thing for me to communicate, that's why it appears as if I've said nothing in my earlier posts in this thread. But me and you are looking at the same thing (suppression of information in the arab world), so there really shouldn't be much to fight over. I just don't think it's the right approach to call them brainwashed because that's more of an attack and isn't the kind of talk that will get us anywhere... instead it just makes us more self-justifying. And my views in this thread at least have nothing to do with me being a mod. I've had similar views about the word brainwashed way before that ever happened, and I used them to argue against some very liberal views:

    EDIT: So I'm not saying we should compare CNN to arab media or that we shouldn't. I just think that it's going in the wrong direction even to try. If you say something bad about the arab media and someone responds with 'oh yeah, you stupid american you guys are just as brainwashed,' it's not going to do much. I think it's hard to even TRY to compare our world with their world because we already LIVE in our world. People act like it's supposed to spite your comment by saying that english media is just as bad, but the point you were making is that arab media did THIS specific thing in THIS specific instance. And what's important is to point that out and to point out innacuracies when we see them, but not to use them to make some huge generality about the other side when that's probably just going to move us further from the truth.
