11. Kudos All Around

.... to you for presenting this thread and to those thoughtful responses ahead of mine. Mustn't forget to thank Confucius and Mr. Chomsky for their words of wisdom.

I once visited Glen Beck's website just to razz him about something, and he not only removed my post as expected, he kept writing me threatening emails until I had to suggest legal action against him. He's truly nuts, people. At one time there was a video about his screaming insanity where you could insert your own name into the performance. I had a lot of fun with that. But yes, I know it's wrong to ridicule mental patients. If he weren't so public with it, I certainly would not do so.

13. Manufactured Consent reveals how news is manufactured and explains how elite

decided against outright attacking the working class news papers via draining it's financial resources and instead would allow the markets to enforce responsibility... Rupert Murdoch shows that the markets are owned by the rich.... Elite continue to manufacture fear of drugs, crime, deficit, guns, war......

Noam Chomsky's dialogue is important. And while the elements of the propaganda machine might be tweaked to adjust for the exposure of one of it's tentacles... It does continue to adapt and it does continue to serve a purpose for the corporations that call themselves people..

"the potential power of working people to effect social change through the force of 'combination' and organized action." This was deemed a major threat by the ruling elites. One MP asserted that the workingclass newspapers "inflame passions and awaken their selfishness, contrasting their current condition with what they contend to be their future condition-a condition incompatible with human nature, and those immutable laws which Providence has established for the regulation of civil society." The result was an attempt to squelch the working-class media by libel laws and prosecutions, by requiring an expensive security bond as a condition for publication, and by imposing various taxes designed to drive out radical media by raising their costs. These coercive efforts were not effective, and by mid-century they had been abandoned in favor of the liberal view that the market would enforce responsibility."

14. NICE JOB OF INTERVIEWING, CENK...I WAS AMAZED AT

How Professor Chomsky can retain "an objective optimism". This is an ass kicker to me, and creates a challenge to continue to view the current situation as a struggle and that struggle can be won, at least move the ARC towards the light. Thanks for posting, this is great stuff.
