An image of six soldiers who died searching for Bergdahl has been spreading across the Internet like wildfire...


The internet is a large and growing problem for our masters.  Because it is so free and open, unflattering information spreads very quickly and more people are using the internet as a primary news source.

As I understand it, Bergdahl's English has deteriorated and his Arabic improved during his time with the Taliban which is interesting given this information:

Languages of Afghanistan


 


 
Dari, Afghan version of Persian language, is the most spoken language in Afghanistan. Official languages of Afghanistan are Dari 50%, Pashtu 35%, Turkic languages (primarily Uzbek and Turkmen) 11%, and 30 minor languages, more popular among whom are Turkish languages like Turkmen and Uzbek. Most people in Afghanistan are bilingual.

 Here is brief information about two brief languages of Afghanistan, Dari and Pashto:

Dari
Languages of Afghanistan Dari Persian is spoken in the provinces of Herat, Hazarajat, Balkh, Ghor, Ghazni, Budaksham, Panjsher, Galcha-Pamir Mountains and several regions of Kabul. Various dialects of Dari are Afghan Farsi, Herati, Tajiki and Kabuli. Word 'Dari' relates to word 'Dara' or 'Valley'. Language Dari was born in Khorasan, a mountainous land where valleys were abundant. Name Dari referes to the language spoken by the people of valleys. Dari belongs to the group of western Iranian languages. Dari in Afghanistan is written in Arabic script, and has enriched itself with vast Arabic vocabulary.

Pashto
 More than 9 million people in Afganistan speak Pashto. Major Pashto speaking towns in Afghanistan include Capital Kabul and Kandahar. Pashto belongs to East Iranian group of languages. Pashto has two major dialects: Western Pashto spoken in Afghanistan, and Eastern Pashto spoken in North-Eastern Afghanistan. In Kandahar, southern Pashto dialect is spoken. Pashto has extensive writing tradition. Pashto has long tradition of classic poets, most notable among whom is Khoshal Khan Khattak, considered as national poet of Afghanistan. Thousands of two and four line folk poems are also part and parcel of Pashto.

Minor Languages
 Turkmen and Uzbek are more popular among minor languages of Afghanistan. Other languages are Aimaq, Arabic (Tajiki Spoken), Ashkun, Azerbaijani, Balochi, Brahui, Darwazi, Gawar-Bati, Gujari, Hazaragi, Jakati, Kamviri, Karakalpak, Kazakh, Kirghiz, Malakhel, Mogholi, Pashayi, Sanglechi-Ishkashimi, Tangshewi, Tatar, Tirahi, Uyghur, Waigali, Wakhi, Warduji and Wotapuri-Katarqali.

Turkmen
 Approximate 500,000 people in Afghanistan speak Turkmen. It is spoken along the border of Turkmenistan, in Faryab and Badghis provinces.

Uzbek
 About 1,400,000 or 9% people in the country speak Uzbek. It is spoken in several places of North Afghanistan, especially Fariab province. Arabic script is used.

I would be interested how his Arabic improved so much when his captors probably don't speak it.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

I expect the call for fair use to increase, however, I don't think information flow is the problem you think it is. Americans have been dumbed down and indoctrinated. The internet allows us a bigger echo chamber, but it is an echo chamber. That image of the fallen would be unwelcome by most on the internet. Those of us who haven't yet lost our mind see it, and get infuriated, but we were already ticked off, disgusted, and depressed.
