Free Basics will be used for American Propaganda

Free Basics by Facebook is a potentially non-neutral Internet currently being deployed in India and around the world. It will be used to publicize access to media material that aids American interests. Facebook has already completed its mood manipulation studies funded by the Pentagon. By controlling what is published or censored on the wall, they are already able to change emotional state of the public. Such and other techniques will be used to affect the mood of the Indian public, influence elections, and wartime perception.

Like all forms of propaganda, the initial phase will be that of winning the trust of the public. So I predict my relatives and friends will initially find everything written in the above paragraph to be false. This is similar to how loudspeaker propaganda by South Korea against North Korea works.
