Caitlin Jonestone – The Just World Fallacy: Why People Bash Assange And Defend Power

Summary:
Caitlin Jonestone explains how propaganda works, that people blame the unfortunate and those who are are the victims of what is wrong in our society on them, and so the poor are 'undeserving' and Jullian Assange is suffering because he did some 'bad things'. And so Iraq is in the mess it is today because it is a bad country with bad people (poor Muslims), and not because it has always had its economy wrecked by the West, its dictators installed by the West, and then, finally, attacked and destroyed by the West. It is a 'Shithole country' .This gives people a feeling that the world is just, and if everyone behaves themselves and are good, then everything will be just fine for them. The skilled propagandists in the West know all about this and have studied the psychology of this phenomenon

The skilled propagandists in the West know all about this and have studied the psychology of this phenomenon for a long time. And so, the Japanese people, women and children too, 'deserved' to have atomic bombs dropped on them.

The rich imperialists of the West have done so well because they are 'extremely good', and not because they are the biggest crooks on the planet.
