Here is an apparent paradox:
(1) Americans are encouraged to believe lies (e.g., the official stories of the JFK, RFK, and MLK assassinations; and the official stories of 9/11 and the Boston Marathon bombing). We're also encouraged to hate people for geopolitical purposes (e.g., Muslims).
(2) However, when Donald Trump appears to run his political campaign in part on what the MSM calls lies and hatred (e.g., his statements about Mexicans), we are told he's a B-A-D MAN.
This is no paradox at all. The entire US economic and political system is based on lies and hatred and the obvious ease with which the powers that be can use both to manipulate the masses.
