Coercion and Comic Sans: How “Positive Thinking” Became Capital’s Latest Weapon  February 27, 2016 – 08:56 am

As the attack on workers and the unemployed – and its horrendous human consequences - gathers pace, so the plunge into what Barbara Ehrenreich calls the post-rational[1] accelerates with it. The brutality of 21st-century capitalism, like the movie bankrobber in a clown mask, wears the rictus grin of malevolent good cheer.

“Think of it as a massive experiment in mind control. “Reality sucks, ” a computer scientist with a master’s degree who can find only short-term, benefit-free contract jobs told me. But you can’t change reality, at least not in any easy and obvious way. You could join a social movement working to create an adequate safety net or to bring about more humane corporate policies, but those efforts might take a lifetime. For now, you can only change your perception of reality, from negative and bitter to positive and accepting. This was the corporate world’s great gift to its laid-off employees and the overworked survivors—positive thinking.”[2]

These days it’s simply not enough to turn up, to sell your labour or to prostrate yourself before the beneficence of the implacable ‘taxpayer’. Like a reality TV contestant, you’ve got to Really Want It. You’ve got to get with the programme; if you’re employed, you’ve got to sign up to The Vision and align yourself with The Values; if you’re unemployed, you’ve got to subject yourself to the loopy indignities of Neurolinguistic Programming or any other flavour of touchy-feely, happy-clappy bullshit they throw at you.

CNN promotes ignorance in the US

Americans (the term used here to mean US citizens) are, by the masses, a dumb and ignorant lot, speaking in general, compared to other populations from around the world. Americans are also arrogant (ask any one who is not American). But this is partly the result of Americans not having any respectable news media. The closest contender for the title, CNN, falls short by miles. Here's an example w...titudes toward life and to urge the use of films for educational purposes.
