Agnotology: Ignorance is Power

Staff Writer, DL Mullan
Ignorance / Confusion 

Are you confused about world events? politics? public policy? You are not alone. Governments and corporations employ tactics  to keep the public discourse and political landscape on uneven ground for power and profit:
Agnotology is the study of wilful acts to spread confusion and deceit, usually to sell a product or win favour
In the article: The Man who Studies the Spread of Ignorance*, we learn how and why this wilful spread of ignorance is so important to the criminal mind.
“I was exploring how powerful industries could promote ignorance to sell their wares. Ignorance is power… and agnotology is about the deliberate creation of ignorance.

“In looking into agnotology, I discovered the secret world of classified science, and thought historians should be giving this more attention.” 
But this spread of ignorance and confusion happens in more than the commercial sphere, it happens in the political one as well:
Proctor explains that ignorance can often be propagated under the guise of balanced debate. For example, the common idea that there will always be two opposing views does not always result in a rational conclusion. This was behind how tobacco firms used science to make their products look harmless, and is used today by climate change deniers to argue against the scientific evidence.

“This ‘balance routine’ has allowed the cigarette men, or climate deniers* today, to claim that there are two sides to every story, that ‘experts disagree’ – creating a false picture of the truth, hence ignorance.”
Have you been in the middle of this type of agnotology? It is more common than you realize. 

If you want to keep ahead of the spread of ignorance, then be sure to fact check everything you see, hear, and read. 

The truth is out there.

*Oh and by the way, BBC, there is no climate change based on facts and science. So in your article cited above you allowed two different types of agnotological references to create fallacies in your argument, but good try anyway.

Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2015-2020

Staff Writer, Nicole Meyer-Greene
Health / Food 

The SAD, Standard American Diet, has been updated:
The Dietary Guidelines is required under the 1990 National Nutrition Monitoring and Related Research Act, which states that every 5 years, the U.S. Departments of Agriculture (USDA) and Health and Human Services (HHS) must jointly publish a report containing nutritional and dietary information and guidelines for the general public. The statute (Public Law 101-445, 7 U.S.C. 5341 et seq.) requires that the Dietary Guidelines be based on the preponderance of current scientific and medical knowledge. The 2015-2020 edition of the Dietary Guidelines builds from the 2010 edition with revisions based on the Scientific Report of the 2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee and consideration of Federal agency and public comments.

Previous editions of the Dietary Guidelines focused primarily on individual dietary components such as food groups and nutrients. However, people do not eat food groups and nutrients in isolation but rather in combination, and the totality of the diet forms an overall eating pattern. The components of the eating pattern can have interactive and potentially cumulative effects on health. These patterns can be tailored to an individual’s personal preferences, enabling Americans to choose the diet that is right for them. As a result, healthy eating patterns and their food and nutrient characteristics are a focus of the recommendations in the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines.

The Dietary Guidelines is designed for nutrition and health professionals to help all individuals ages 2 years and older and their families consume a healthy, nutritionally adequate diet. The information in the Dietary Guidelines is used by policymakers in developing Federal food, nutrition, and health policies and programs. It also is the basis for Federal nutrition education materials designed for the public and for the nutrition education components of HHS and USDA food programs.

The 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans is the 8th edition released since 1980 and remains the current edition until the 2020-2025 Dietary Guidelines for Americans is released.

Oregon Stand Off, Agenda 21, and Government Corruption

Staff Writer, R. Patrick Chapman
Agenda 21 / Federal Overreach

What Representative Greg Walden describes in this video about the bullying of Americans off their land is what Agenda 21 is proscribed to do. Here for the source documents of and about Agenda 21. 

Isn't it about time our representatives in local, state, and federal governments realize they do not work for the United Nations? The treaty to implement Agenda 21 was never approved by the Senate of the United States and therefore should not be forced onto an unsuspecting public?
