43. The last sentence of Lippman's truly hits home.
"The logic is clear. Propaganda is to democracy what the bludgeon is to a totalitarian state...."

I believe as the Internet has grown in power and influence with the resultant loss in propaganda power by the corporate media, the current powers that be, whether governmental or corporate have increasingly turned to authoritarian answers as the solution.

The American People's own shrinking sphere of privacy is under continuous assault in one form or another while simultaneously those specialized classes only assert privilege and non-accountability to the people, they pretend to serve or represent.

Cheers to you as well. :toast:
