The Politics of Information

The Politics of Information

The politics of information:

                What the mainstream didn’t print.

The politics of propaganda:

                What they did!

Censorship is a bland diet

                As we are spoonfed what to think.

The politics of information.

The politics of information

                On which the establishment depends.

Stifling any revolution

                Twisting it to a money-making stunt.

The politics of information

                Feeding the proletariat runt.

The politics of information

                An overnight success.

Sex and scandal, trivia and lies.

                Nanny always knows best.

The politics of information,

                A smokescreen of conspiracy and lies.

Intended to confuse and fool

                Right across the nation.

But we are carnivival

                In the colours of bright spring.

Immune to their wiles

                We gaily dance and sing.

The politics of information

                We’d rather believe our eyes!

Opher 1.5.2023

The media churns out a relentless stream of propaganda intended to play on our prejudices, doubts and fears, insinuating fingers into our minds.

It’s the politics of misinformation as they play for control of our minds.

Without the brainwashing the establishment could not possibly survive.

Spreading faster than the virus

Spreading faster than the virus

It’s surging through the cities

At a billion miles an hour

Growing exponentially

Turning ideas sour.

It’s spreading across the airwaves

At the speed of light

Turning brains to mush

Causing many a fight.

It’s tearing through families

Ripping them apart

Tearing at the jugular

Ripping out the heart.

Where it originates

Is greatly disputed

But nobody has yet invented

The cure for stupid!


You would think that people would see through the rabid tabloid propaganda. You think that the bubble of lies and conspiracy would burst. You would think that people would see the blatant profiteering. You would think people could see when our leaders are incompetent, lying fools.

But no.

What a good job Trump, Bolsonaro and Johnson have done.

Nobody could have done better.

Death-rates, cronyism, exploitation, hypocrisy and lies – self-serving arrogance.

It counts for nothing.

People suck it in.

There is just no accounting for stupid!
