25. You ain't gettin' banned for stating observations about the media.

 

Spot-on observations, I might add.

There are many on DU who will say "Pshaw! You're just being paranoid and irrational.", but the fact of the matter is that what is happening now is remarkably similar to the historic precursors of fascist takeovers everywhere.

It is insidious and frightening. It is the monster under the bed that's really there, but because so many don't look, it grows more real and dreadful.

We are being divided against each-other by the media, our politicians and institutions, and trolls. It is being done at so many levels and with so much innate intricacy that it is impossible to route without the bold journalism that is desperately lacking, and becoming ever more decrepit every year.

There are only two types of people that will tell you 'no such thing could happen/is happening': The trepid ignorant, and trolls.

Welcome to DU. Never be afraid to speak your honest observations.
