Toner: in order not to fall under the influence of state propaganda, Russians need to "develop critical thinking"

98
State Department spokesman Mark Toner, in his Twitter account, explained to users of the Russian segment of the social network how to “not give in to state propaganda,” reports RIA News.




Answering a question from one of the Russian users (at least the question was asked in Russian), “what needs to be done in order not to succumb to state propaganda (TV, etc.)”, Toner wrote:
"Develop critical thinking and independent media."


The agency recalls that on Wednesday, Victoria Nuland complained about the lack of money allocated by Washington to "fight against Russian propaganda."

Such an insignificant amount ($ 100 million) directed to this "holy" cause, according to her, goes to "trainings for journalists and support of Russian-speaking news organizations in the Baltics, Ukraine and other countries neighboring Russia. "

Earlier, Congressman Adam Kittsinger made a proposal to "create a new federal agency to combat propaganda issued by Russia and China."

He stated that “The creation of an appropriate agency will give the United States a unique opportunity to send a powerful stream of truth, ensuring world stability and preventing conflicts.”

    And what is the truth that once sounded from the mouth of the State Department to Russia, I think they should have corrected their thinking.

        Critical thinking is a GIFT of GOD, but constant criticism of power and denial of sovereignty is a product of the zombie population.

          Well, about power, in my opinion. It's in vain - it also periodically needs a muzzle on the stall. so that the service does not seem to be honey and does not come off the team

            By the way, we have independent media. On television, the channel RedLine-Krasnaya Line and the Liberal Democratic Party. I got a kick out of looking at them. There, a young economist and presenter Vladislav Zhukovsky in the evening of smart people gathers "Kremlin towers" to criticize.

              Keyword - CONSTANT criticism of power. Our liberals are engaged in this, even if for this they have to constantly contradict themselves.

          Toner: in order not to fall under the influence of state propaganda, Russians need to "develop critical thinking"

          Everything is clear, the next psacking macking demagogy faxing. We have developed critical thinking and we do not succumb to State Department propaganda. And the State Department itself needs to develop critical thinking and stop interfering in the affairs of other countries, arranging coups and wars, political killings.

                  "For some reason" - it's you who figure it out

                  The fact is that the invitees say on such programs, and not what the presenter says.

                  If those invited from the "other side" speak sanely and do not repeat themselves (like Vadim Karasev) - this is one thing, and if they, like parrots, repeat the same thing (like Koftun or Zlobin or Bom) and cannot answer the questions asked, it means not everything is fine behind them.


                  Critical thinking is to analyze events, from simple to complex.

                  There are events and the reaction of the parties to them is quite clear, there is information obtained from unofficial sources, based on these facts, you can evaluate other events and facts.

    I had fun there for the glory ....


    Your hobbies are strange ...

    And the State Department official, in my opinion, says the case! Citizens of the Russian Federation simply need critical thinking as air, unless of course they want to live with dignity.
    In our country, a situation has developed where most of the country's wealth is concentrated in the hands of a very narrow handful of people. And the media is expensive. So it turns out that all the media are in the hands of a small handful of rich people.
    The rich are closely related to power. Otherwise, they would quickly be dispossessed. A sort of union of dough and Parker (in the sense of signing decrees).
    Expect from such media - the truth is not necessary. those. they sometimes write the truth about their opponents, but they never write the truth to themselves.
    Therefore, the advice of the State Department is quite normal. (State Deputies also sometimes tell the truth about their opponents and never speak about themselves laughing )
    Who wants to develop their critical thinking - read, recommend

    Mr. Tolmach, I don’t think that you have revealed to someone something new about the media, about the rich, you should always have your own opinion, Toner’s words are not only premium to Russian readers, they are premium to the whole world’s audience. From here the conclusion is that you should not allow yourself to litter your brains and use one or two sources.

    Answering a question from one of the Russian users (at least the question was asked in Russian), “what needs to be done in order not to succumb to state propaganda (TV, etc.)”, Toner wrote:
    “Develop critical thinking and independent media”

    How is “critical thinking” related to “independent” Toner media? Are these media independent of what, or from whom? Maybe independent of social being, or of the total dominance of the ideas of the ruling class, i.e. capitalist ideas aimed at promoting freedom of acquisition, personal enrichment, private ownership of the means of production, etc ...? No, actually. Well, since, dear comrades who sell their labor, what bourgeois tune is more pleasant for you to listen to form “critical thinking”, domestic, or imported, overseas? I don’t have any.

And there’s another oddity - GDP said sanctions worsened the situation in the economy, me too do not believe? Or do you need to believe selectively? The same GDP says that we can withstand - do not believe here? NATO exercises near the borders of the Russian Federation are for my benefit and are not directed against Russia - should this be believed without discussion? But the GDP and Shoigu are worried - are they sick all over the head and should I reassure them?

    Well, yes, in Russia there is a problem with critical thinking, people very much believe in their own media, even if they point out a lie, they will still prove that it is not a lie and will begin to call him Khokhl or someone else. There is also a problem with critical thinking in the USA: all critically thinking people in the USA are generally against the US foreign policy and at the same time do not trust the government, therefore the level of propaganda there is no less than in Russia, somehow people need to be driven into the herd.
