I've said it before, and here it is again. I think all elected officials should be required to wear those dog "shock collars" and they would shock them every time they lie, we could creative a small polygraph into the collar that would alert the collar to shock them. This would help so much with campaign promises they have no intention of keeping, and outright lies. From Constables, County Court Clerks, City Council Members, Mayors, state and federal Representatives, state and federal Senators, Governor's, President, etc., it should be implemented throughout.
I cannot help but laugh imaging this in action, can you imagine a politician giving a speech and them suddenly grabbing their neck and hitting the floor from pain because they just lied?
** For the record, I personally do not approve of the use of "shock collars" on dogs. **
Your dog will never lie to you, will always love you, and is always happy to see you. I am so sick of lies and propaganda, but we live with it every day, and it has been used through out history, especially by the Nazi's who left us the Principals of Propaganda. You should really read off if it, we live with it every day.
It doesn't take a very thorough study to recognize that one of the most successful and vicious methods of indoctrinating the masses is to enforce prejudice.
Is the truth still the truth once it has been edited? Every day we are presented with an abundance of information. We read it, we observe it, we watch it on TV. This is where we receive our cues on how to function effectively in the world.
The brain does not simply gather and stockpile information as a computer’s hard drive does. Facts are stored first in the hippocampus, a structure deep in the brain about the size and shape of a fat man’s curled pinkie finger. But the information does not rest there. Every time we recall it, our brain writes it down again, and during this re-storage, it is also reprocessed. In time, the fact is gradually transferred to the cerebral cortex and is separated from the context in which it was originally learned. For example, you know that the capital of California is Sacramento, but you probably don’t remember how you learned it.
This phenomenon, known as source amnesia, can also lead people to forget whether a statement is true. Even when a lie is presented with a disclaimer, people often later remember it as true.
