Propaganda

harp_seal_000Propaganda . . .it’s in every commercial . . .on every product . . . every billboard . . . in every subway . . . on every bus . . . in every newspaper.  It’s everywhere we look.

It is the propaganda machine that has so many Americans believing that there is no global warming, while scientists monitoring the Arctic ice melt know better.

It was the Nazi propaganda machine that fomented hatred of the Jewish people, and now the world has forgotten.  Anti-semitic hate crime is on the rise not only in Europe, but in America as well, where Jews remain the most frequently targeted faith.  Jews make up less than 0.2% of the world’s population, yet the scapegoating continues.

As a chaplain intern, I work with people of all faiths.  When I walk into a room to visit, the people I see don’t care what my belief system is, because they just want a loving, caring human being to visit with them and pray with and for them, which is what I love so much about this profession.

My prayer is that we all work towards making this world one that spins on the axis of peaceful co-existence, with every man, woman and child walking with peace, love, and understanding filling their hearts and souls.  When that day comes, propaganda will have no audience, hate will be a thing of previous generations, and (wo)mankind will be able to look back with a clear lens at how foolish (s)he was.
