Evaluating Ebola as a Biological Weapon

An important read, especially if you’re concerned that some terrorist organization is trying to weaponize Ebola. Spoiler alert. You can stop worrying.

 

And, you should stop listening to mainstream media. Their business model relies on turning absolutely everything into fear, uncertainty, doubt. It’s called FUD. Those of us who’ve spent a career in sales and marketing are intimately familiar with the concept of FUD. It’s a damn shame that newsrooms are now beholden to my profession and the people on the business side; i.e., to the people in media companies selling advertising.

 

The breakdown of the wall between "church and state" in media is one of the most damaging things ever to occur in our democracy because it turns us into scared and misinformed sheep.

About Peaceful Patriot

Proud middle class husband, father, and progressive liberal. Registered Non-Partisan but have much more in common with Democrats than Republicans. Consider Libertarians to be immature and underdeveloped in their understanding of reality. An atheist who doesn't care what you believe so long as you stop pretending the Founding Fathers intended for you to legislatively force your beliefs on everyone else. Laughs out loud in mocking disdain at the abject lunacy of birthers, climate science deniers, and hard core tea partiers. If that offends you, too bad. You're not rational and have no place at the adult table.
