NEWS ALERT: Obama says all information is bad! (We're talking 1984 here people!)

As far as I'm concerned, "1984" is here and now!

OBAMA's statement:

“Meanwhile, you’re coming of age in a 24/7 media environment that bombards us with all kinds of content and exposes us to all kinds of arguments, some of which don’t rank all that high on the truth meter. With iPods and iPads; Xboxes* and PlayStations*; information becomes a distraction, a diversion, a form of entertainment, rather than a tool of empowerment. All of this is not only putting new pressures on you; it is putting new pressures on our country and on our democracy."

He's right! he claims we're a democracy, not very high on the truth meter.

Obama's not saying all information is bad. What he's saying is too much of it can be a bad thing when it is treated with indifference as to it's accuracy. Which can be true (be the source the internet or a government).

Of course while this argument can be used to make be people be critical in reference to their sources of information it can also be used as a prologue to censorship, firstly by saying only certain sources are credible (i.e. the government and MSM) and secondlythen discrediting, marginalising and ultimately shutting down other sources for inaccuracy (whether the inaccuracy actually exists or not).

For the umpteenth time, would somebody explain to this man (who would be king) that WE DO NOT HAVE A DEMOCRACY?

HE has a Corporation.
WE have a Republic.

AND the two do not mix. period.

There are 1440 pages to the Constitution (or was it 1444?) anyway, not a single page has the word 'Democracy' on it.

Cognitive Dissonance people. Look it up.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 967579


Uh, I think maybe you should look it up. It has nothing to do with information overload.

"a conflict or anxiety resulting from inconsistencies
between one's beliefs and one's actions or other beliefs."

In other words, it's the dissonance between the model you have of the world in your head (especially if you have publicly defended that model) and facts that refute the model.

Examples...

that shitty feeling you have when you have publicly and loudly defended the idea "We need to go to war to get the WMDs", and you find yourself still defending (rationalizing) the war after that reason is found out to be a fraud.

Or...

still driving around with the Obama bumper sticker pasted to your car after spending Election Night crying with joy that he was going to finally bring home the troops

The human brain has not evolved to cope with so much information or the ever-changing nature of the information.

We are literally going insane because of it.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 90233

Here is your context.



The President of the United States is litterally saying that more information is a problem and cites non-informational sources (XBOX,Playstation) as either complete red hearings or embarrasing ignorance. Given that Obama is the first president to insist on having his Blackberry with him at all times and was the first to make such a big deal out of texting supporters with exclusive first to know info, he comes across as a liar who is only trying to get the sheep to stop watching the news.

He has a point, I wouldn't be as near as upset if I didn't know what he was doing and only had the MSM to tell me what was going on. If he silences everyone but the MSM everyone becomes uninformed sheep and we can all go back to grazing.

I can't stand Obama. But the essence of the words in red are true. We are bombarded/assulted with useless information. We are always being distracted from what is really up. He should know he is a media pig who has done, if nothing else, exactly that. The reality of Orwell's 1984 is the truth being hidden and the people suppressed. The end result is the same.

....Information is a distraction??

Well, yes..

Fiction is entertainment and distracting, often informative.

Non-Fiction is information. Knowledge that is real. (Can be distracting.)

Obama cleverly makes no distinction in order to slide his views over.

The two large sections are clearly marked in every library.

Sounds like the net chatter is starting to have an impact.
