Effective propaganda (for instance, nationalism) ultimately reduces humans into a sub-human status.
Take for instance the discourse of ‘National Security” – which is primarily about the security of the ruling economic-political class.
Say the words ‘patriotism’ or ‘national security’, and we instantly think like sub-human animals – that is, compassionless, belligerent, blood-thirsty.
That’s why, I will never be a patriot or a nationalist ever again for the rest of my life.
We have a choice of loving fellow humans – irrespective of normal differences – or loving man-made diseases called ‘states’ and ‘countries’.
