Hitler – Person of the Year (or Do you trust media?)

Hitler was declared “Person of the Year” from the “prestigious” international TIME magazine in 1938 (see figure above). And guess what happened in 1939: The new “Person of the Year” was… Joseph Stalin!  Of course there is no need to tell you that the pictures of these front covers cannot be easily found today… Mass media always promote specific interests and unfortunately independent journalists can be counted with the fingers of one hand (well, after you cut off the fingers). How much do you trust media today?

PS. When I tried to share this post in the Harmonia Philosophica page on Facebook, my account was immediatelly and automatically blocked because I tried to post an image with “racist content”! Weird Times… Full of hypocrisy…

Spiros Kakos is a thinker located in Greece. He has been Chief Editor of Harmonia Philosophica since its inception. In the past he has worked as a senior technical advisor for many years. In his free time he develops software solutions and contributes to the open source community. He has also worked as a phD researcher in the Advanced Materials sector related to the PCB industry. He likes reading and writting, not only philosophy but also in general. He believes that science and religion are two sides of the same coin and is profoundly interested in Religion and Science philosophy. His philosophical work is mainly concentrated on an effort to free thinking of "logic" and reconcile all philosophical opinions under the umbrella of the "One" that Parmenides - one of the first thinkers - visualized. The "Harmonia Philosophica" articles program is the tool that will accomplish that. Life's purpose is to be defeated by greater things. And the most important things in life are illogical. We must fight the dogmatic belief in "logic" if we are to stay humans... Credo quia absurdum!
