Propaganda Machine "The business of the journalists is to destroy the truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to vilify, to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread" In America, John Swinton, then the pre-eminent New York journalist, was the guest of honour at a banquet given him by the leaders of his craft.
Someone who knew neither the press nor Swinton offered a toast to the independent press. You know it and I know it. There is not one of you who dares to write your honest opinions, and if you did, you know beforehand that it would never appear in print.
I am paid weekly for keeping my honest opinion out of the paper I am connected with. Others of you are paid similar salaries for similar things, and any of you who would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the streets looking for another job. If I allowed my honest opinions to appear in one issue of my paper, before twenty-four hours my occupation would be gone.
The business of the journalists is to destroy the truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to vilify, to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread.
You know it and I know it, and what folly is this toasting an independent press? We are the tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance.
Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men.

We are intellectual prostitutes. Propaganda Machine There are quite a few things that could be said about it and that is one of the reasons we did not comment on this before. But Benya keeps insisting and projecting guilt on all those who decided to make his "earthquaking revelations" of quite questionable value and validity, made for the purpose yet to be determined, available in full as soon, as they are published, which does make quite some sense.
How corrupt one needs to be to even conceive of an idea to place a prices sticker on nothing less then Truth itself, if there is any to begin with? Is it available only to some "chosen few", and not to mere "mortals" that either can not afford to pay or do not even consider that all these wild stories of Benya are worth a penny?
Is there any evidence that all his concoctions, inventions and "prophecies" are anything more than a plain show for the "fools" and a "herd of sheep", "full of fury, signifying nothing"?
Why does he need to charge money for his grand concoctions and "revelations" of all kinds if not to make something fake look like something really valuable? There is another interesting question with quite some consequences: Let us go through it point by point.
The copyright law, as it stands, is not even meant to support the creativity. With sufficient marketing hype, nearly anything may be pushed to the levels of mass hysteria resulting in sales of utter garbage, and even utmost evil, in millions of copies.
But genuinely creative works are not guaranteed to bring enough income to even support the most basic needs of the authors and there are plenty of examples of it. But the point here is that Benya poses as some kind of a "warrior for Truth", nothing less. So, the question arises: Can you imagine Jesus Christ charging you money for the Truth and for entrance into the "Kingdom of God"?
How can one even conceive of an idea of charging money for the Truth? Because if we take out the information from the "sources", then what will be left is mostly his wild guesses about some grand schemes, at best.
So, what is he selling you? What is he doing by charging you money to know the Truth, as soon as it comes out? Is he merely trying to "survive", like any "mortal"?
Then why not "go get a job" to earn enough money during the day and do all your great writings and investigation after hours, just to keep your Soul clean and trustworthiness on a proper level?Nominate B-class articles for the portal.
