Media Programming... what is it?
The typical definition speaks of recent technology's reach into your home... and that's a decent place to start.
Going further back to times past, and asking the question “what is programming” comprised of?
Read ^the link^ and a definition from that source:
Propaganda is information that is not impartial (fair/just) and used primarily to influence an audience and further an agenda, often by presenting facts selectively (perhaps lying by omission) to encourage a particular synthesis, or using loaded messages to produce an emotional rather than a rational response to the information presented.One has the responsibility to decipher how certain media publications "frame" their stories.
Doing so may keep one from being instigated according to media manipulations... and see past that which all humans struggle with within our hearts (fear, lust, greed, prejudice, ego, complacency, arrogance, pride, etc.)
I think every human being can acknowledge, or at least logically conclude, the simple idea of loving one another and not wishing harm onto others is what we'd personally would like to receive, and one we can accommodate in forwarding to others.
We can learn from each and every human being, no matter how we perceive them or how they may perceive us (how “we've” been programmed to perceive them and vice versa).
I personally don't think I have any enemies in the flesh, but perhaps some people make themselves out to be my enemy by their choice or whatever motivates them.
I understand there are unseen forces who instigate those in the flesh to become enemies of this man.
However, I cannot have an enemy who is a human... for that would be me falling for the lies in propaganda and the trappings laid out to trap my heart (our collective fallibility).
To me, God's purpose is evident in every single person, animal, plant, etc..
Every single 'thing', no matter how high or low, has a purpose.
The virus has its role, as does the mosquito, as does the smallest to the biggest fish in the sea.
How much more do the things we do not perceive or do not understand still continue the reality that all things somehow, and some way, work together in seemingly orchestrated crescendos, lulls and bottoms.
The person of peace, who claims for themselves to follow the way of peace, however that 'way' is understood or prescribed, should see the human being across the street from them, across the globe from them, as their mirrored reflection.
As the mirror reflects your external cues and actions, it is up to the individual to make that initial, and continual, loving effort to best reflect the manner they'd wish to be treated... regardless how the person reflects or responds to your love.
This is the way of peace that so many religions claim to know and religious people claim to follow, but action is proved by one's words.
