    “Most people prefer to believe their leaders are just and fair even in the face of evidence to the contrary, because once a citizen acknowledges that the government under which they live is lying and corrupt, the citizen has to choose what he or she will do about it. To take action in the face of a corrupt government entails risks of harm to life and loved ones. To choose to do nothing is to surrender one’s self-image of standing for principles. Most people do not have the courage to face that choice. Hence, most propaganda is not designed to fool the critical thinker but only to give moral cowards an excuse not to think at all.”
    — Michael Rivero

Russians Fear U.S. ‘DNA Weapon’ But Experts Say It’s Unlikely | Science and Technology

Is the United States hell bent on creating a super “DNA” weapon to attack Russians?

That relatively far-fetched hypothesis has been talked about after Vladimir Putin’s acknowledgement at the end of last month that American researchers were eager to collect biological information on folks in Russia.

Addressing a senior official’s complaint that the Pentagon might be collecting photographs of Russians by hacking into numerous CCTV and surveillance systems in the country, Putin laid bare an even more jaw-dropping claim – that folks in different parts of Russia and from different ethnic groups were wanted for a “systematic and professional” harvest of DNA, fluids, organs and tissues, Russian News Agency TASS has documented.

The accusation centers on a recent U.S. Air Force call for tender biospecimen procurement: 12 ordinary human ribonucleic acid (RNA) samples, plus 27 fresh human synovial samples, of Russian or Europid descent, that have to be collected in Russia.

Senior Russian officials and members of the State Duma have clearly become jittery after Putin verified a long-running rumour about Washington’s clandestine, eerie interest in Russian genes and bio-info.

    "I think the subject which will be of most importance politically is mass psychology....Although this science will be diligently studied, it will be rigidly confined to the governing class. The populace will not be allowed to know how its convictions were generated."
    -- Bertrand Russell in The Impact of Science on Society  
     
    “Beware the leader who bangs the drums of war in order to whip the citizenry into a patriotic fervor, for patriotism is indeed a double-edged sword. It both emboldens the blood, just as it narrows the mind. And when the drums of war have reached a fever pitch and the blood boils with hate and the mind has closed, the leader will have no need in seizing the rights of the citizenry. Rather, the citizenry, infused with fear and blinded by patriotism, will offer up all of their rights unto the leader and gladly so. How do I know? For this is what I have done. And I am Caesar.”
    – Julius Caesar
