The war on terror is a myth to create conformity, manipulate public opinion and adjust the individual to government ideals. The war on terror is not the expression of experts, individuals or a small group of advocates. War on terror propaganda comes from actors, journalists and commentators that are directed by capital interests. The war on terror is a weapon of propaganda. A totalitarian weapon directed at the public through mass media communications by promises of peace, freedom and justice. With the public snared in pop culture, the state can continue its war on terror propaganda. Perpetual deception is necessary to control citizens. It is a cynical formula.
