Money Game (Part 1) by Renmakesmusic (music video-disturbing); Thomas Harrington on Manufacured forgetfulness; Join me on Notes
*still working on my draft pile, the infomercial is a freebie: Notes, a new place for us to share ideas.
I just published my first note on Substack Notes, and would love for you to join me there! *Automated post format. I removed a little and left the rest. Marketing is interesting to observe from an intellectual place where you don’t buy in automatically as per the marketer’s plans, or maybe you do. I can. It is easy to believe hype. *Although, I have been enjoying the preliminary phase of Notes.
Here is disturbing but on point video about the division being promoted over immigrants and it is the big money people who are stoking it - graphically disturbing, adds to the power of the message - violence is happening even if we choose to not look at it:
"Money Game (Part 1)" by @Renmakesmusic
This was my first “Note”, and was part of the automated post:
“Notes is a new space on Substack for us to share links, short posts, quotes, photos, and more.” I have been browsing Notes occasionally and it seems a nice way to find new authors to follow. My addition to the pointers below, in the automated post - is that you will only see initial posts by the authors that you have subscribed to, so subscribe to more writers to see more variety in the Notes stream. It is fun or interesting to read conversations that include favorite authors.
Back to my post - in a follow up to the academic journal publishing history redirected by Robert Maxwell into peer review chaos - Thomas Harrington writes about Manufactured forgetfulness at the public cognition level - how did all the news media immediately start touting the same or similar line that 9/11 had brought about a new era? and other social and political topics published at Brownstone Institute, in books, or on his site.
Current publication that caught my attention: How and Why the Intellectuals Betrayed Us ⋆ Brownstone Institute
Which led to a book chapter of his that got pulled at the last moment - my guess would be - due to the paragraph in the opening asking about the definition of terror and if terror caused by the US or Israel counted? - paraphrased by me.

Why Substack Notes
Fellow writers and readers are spending time in Notes for a variety of reasons.
Ted Gioia sees Notes as a forum for dialogue.
The idea behind Notes is simple. Millions of people now participate in Substack as writers and readers—but much of this is built on long articles and essays. We now have a forum for dialoguing and sharing shorter posts.
Chris Ryan is drawn to Substack as an alternative for legacy social media.
One of my main reasons for joining Substack was to wean myself off exploitative social media platforms. I’m hoping this is going to help move us along on that journey!
Sherman Alexie wants to create a kind and creative new space in Notes.
I’m going to focus on being positive, with my own thoughts and photos and by linking to songs, stories, poems from around the web and from other Substacks.
If you encounter any issues, you can always refer to the Notes FAQ for assistance. Looking forward to seeing you there!
Manufactured forgetting, manufactured narrative - those who control the media do have a lot of power. We have the power to turn it off. Changing the channel is likely to get more of the same messaging.
More direct communication is a good thing. The controllers want to prevent organization and the communication that it requires.
Occasionally I get a direct email from a reader, that is okay. Peace be with you.
