General Assembly in East Park: 11/5/11

Anyone think it is strange to see Oswego given the virtual treatment?

Photographic proof that we mean what we say! We really do gather for General Assemblies in East Park each Saturday, this in particular was November 5th. You could join us on our weekly march as well as seen on our lovely and newly created calender… Thanks for the pictures and video, Joe!

Does this point to the inevitability of corporate products in our culture or is this horribly ironic? Thoughts are welcome.

I’ve also noticed that “irony” is growing to be more prominent in our virtual linguistic cloud at stage right. There appears to be a lot of irony in this movement.

I realize I’ve lagged behind, but it’s hard to keep up with finding an interesting picture each day. Probably will be every couple of days.

Anyone know where someone could do this sort of thing in Oswego and not have them taken down/destroyed by the weather?

So what the media do, in effect, is to take the set of assumptions which express the basic ideas of the propaganda system, whether about the Cold War or the economic system or the “national interest” and so on, and then present a range of debate within that framework-so the debate only enhances the strength of the assumptions, ingraining them in people’s minds as the entire possible spectrum of opinion that there is.
