Is Blue MauMau a social media propaganda system?


Does Blue MauMau provide just a cynical illusion of debate?

One of the ways you control what people think is by creating the illusion that there’s a debate going on, but making sure that that debate stays within very narrow margins. Namely, you have to make sure that both sides in the debate accept certain assumptions, and those assumptions turn out to be the propaganda system. As long as everyone accepts the propaganda system, then you can have a debate.

Three or four people talking at each other does not constitute much of a community.

    Blue MauMau is a franchise community composed of those who earn their living in and around the franchise world and the majority who post and comment want no real change to the status quo. They have “token” representation from a few failed franchisees who are are allowed to post, and who are beat up routinely by others who post for failing to do their due diligence and for not being very bright.

    Overall, the site contains fair reporting of the franchise news and the comments by the editor and experts in various fields and by the attorneys, etc.. is informative and helpful to people like me. The comments and forum sections are probably only read by those who make comments and have little influence to change the status quo of the sale and regulation of franchise products to the public. It is not surprising that so much of the news is pro-franchising propaganda.

    I am not allowed to post and my access is blocked because my goal, which is to expose the dishonest regulation of franchising, is not the goal of Blue Mau Mau. Your goal, Les, i.e. to expose the ugliness of the franchise model that is possible because of human nature is also not a goal of Blue Mau Mau, but you have not been blocked from this website and are only shouted down by the majority pro-franchise people who post on Blue Mau Mau and who want to discredit your comments.

    Don did invite me to post the other day on the targeting of VETS and the Patriot Express Loan through the submission of an Email directly to him — perhaps because I sent him a copy of a letter I sent to The Army Times asking the Army Times why their Edge Publication was pushing franchising to the VETS without disclosing the risk involved in buying a franchise because of the ineffective and dishonest regulation of the sale of franchises to veterans and the general public??? I was gratified to see that my comments on The Patriot Expess Loan Initiative are still available on Blue Mau Mau when I used a proxy engine to get in and read the Article to which my EMail comments were posted.

    Now that all news has become “product” for the media, it is not surorising that it is really tough to tell the difference between news and propaganda — huh!
