  •  Propaganda when listened to repeatedly (0+ / 0-)

    ends up having a ring of truth to it.  And people at any age are susceptible to peer pressure.

    So his friends watch Fox and listen to right wing propaganda. And they are all getting on in years.

    There is something about the indignities of aging that cause the particular tone of disgruntlement of Fox and the RW airwaves to be seductive, IMHO.

    I'd like to test my theory about the tone and the words that they choose to see if it meshes with the tone and terminology of a withering body and a not as agile mind.  But it would absolutely kill me to have to listen to that crap.  And I am nearing the age of that bodily and mental decline and want to keep a sharp mind and fear what effect the stultifying crap that they say may have on me.

    Just my own personal hunch.
