The major events of 2014 listed below and in the coming articles are probably the same as the ones recorded in the mainstream media year review. The difference is, as always, in the interpretation of events, in the lies repeated often enough to become “truths” and in the omission of important facts and media censorship.
In 2014, once again, the western mainstream media has shown its servility to the establishment and its mandate: control the public by managing perceptions, convey US-NATO war propaganda and protect the one percent. Once again, its failure to inform instead of propagandizing showed how essential independent media are in our societies to help us understand what is truly going on in the world and to remain free from mental slavery.
The German author Goethe once said: “None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.”
We could easily say that none are more hopelessly misinformed than those who falsely believe the are informed by the mainstream media.
Help us fight mental enslavement and please share this 2014 independent media retrospective of major events and unreported news.
Since there is a lot to cover, there will be separate articles dealing with different issues.
This selection focuses on the Islamic State and related events in Iraq and Syria, the U.S. “withdrawal” from Afghanistan and Libya and the Benghazigate.
