Disinformation, defamation and slander -— and, in the case of the Obama administration, lies, spin and obfuscation-— are tactics that work for a time. But not with moral validity, and not for long.

I was thinking about FUD tactics in business and war, as well shaping opinion socially.

It doesn’t have to be denigrating, belittling or marginalizing it can be constructive.

I feel if you gossiping and passing judgement you ain’t right.

If you are gossiping and discussing how to improve a condition, then it’s valid.

IE

Gee, you know, Ol Bob has taken to drinking now in the middle of the day and it’s affecting him and his family. We should have a little talk with him.

That’s constructive.
