RT has asked the US State Department for specific information concerning allegations that Russia is targeting hospitals in Syria. The response was a reiteration of those allegations and a refusal to treat RT in the same way as other media outlets.

During Wednesday’s State Department briefing, spokesman John Kirby accused Russia and the Syrian regime of the bombing of “five hospitals and at least one mobile clinic in Syria.” RT’s reporter Gayane Chichakyan asked Kirby to specify the details of the alleged incidents, including their location.

My Commentary: Well, then… It looks like the mainstream media monopoly is officially losing it’s death-grip over the mind of the public!

Meanwhile, Obama meets with German chancellor, Angela Merkel, in Berlin for a joint press conference, and stands by silently, while she states:

“Digitisation is a disruptive technological force that brings about deep-seated change and transformation in society. Look at the history of the printing press, when this was invented what kind of consequences it had. Or industrialisation, what consequences that had.”

Also…

“Very often, it led to enormous transformational processes within individual societies and it took a while until societies learned to find the right kinds of policies to contain this, to manage and steer this. We live in a period of profound transformation.”

Patriotism is Cultism

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “Voting is Violence,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

"Patriotism is an immoral feeling because, instead of confessing himself a son of God... or even a fee man guided by his own reason, each man, under the influence of patriotism confesses himself the son of his fatherland and the slave of his government, and commits actions contrary to his reason and conscience." - Leo Tolstoy

My Commentary: Statism is a cult!
