uza2-zombienationA third irony is that Hodgkinson’s act seems almost calculated to generate sympathy for a party, the arch-plutocratic Republicans, that Noam Chomsky has called “the most dangerous organization in human history.” No love for the dismal, neoliberal, dollar-drenched, imperial, and planet-wrecking Dems here, but Chomsky’s comment has some merit.

^0The most important act any world citizen can do is to stop using all mainstream media.^3000

No exceptions whatsoever. It’s brainwash propaganda. Toxic sludge for the mind.^3000

Voices like this are NEVER heard on the mainstream media, owned by the sociopathic 1%.^3000

The "1%" is the global plutocracy, the billionaires, a puny segment of humanity.^3000

These people pretend to honor and defend democracy but are its most serious enemies. ^3000

Injustice, war, grotesque inequality and the murder of the planet is their handiwork. ^3000

Just 8 billionaires own as much wealth as HALF of all humanity—4 billion people.^3000

And the corporate media—which they own—is their main line of defense.^3000

That's why the best way to break their hold over us is to break their media. ^3000

Breaking the corporatocracy's stranglehold on political information is essential.^3000

Save humanity, the planet and its innocent creatures from the looming disasters. ^3000

Increase public distrust in the mainstream media and defeat their power to mislead.^3000

They lie 24/7. They sell you war. Injustice. Death. Confusion. And they never stop.^3000

Some more obviously than others, but they all lie. So trust no one on the Big Media.^3000

And beware of "entertainment shows" that also carry highly toxic imperialist propaganda.^3000

Like the fungal NCIS series. Or "24", glorifying Homeland Security. The police state.^3000

Or CBS Madam Secretary. A ridiculous show, like The West Wing. ^3000

Telling us the US government is good, that the president is good, that its cabinet is good.^3000

That the US establishment—which they represent—has noble aims. Rubbish!^3000

Hollywood and the "news media" are an integrated system of mass disinformation. ^3000

Propaganda to keep the people from waking up to the great crimes committed by their rulers.^3000

Get the healing truth from citizens' media, like The Greanville Post and its free voices. ^3000

Do your part to break the power of the mainstream media and its numerous whores.^3000

Become a soldier in the crucial battle of mass communications. Which we must win.^3000

As the ruling cliques prepare the world for nuclear war, now it's a matter of survival!^3000

  1. ‘The doomed assailant put up a cartoon explaining “How does a bill work?” “That’s an easy one, Billy,” the cartoon reads. “Corporations write the bill and then bribe Congress until it becomes law.” ‘

    That is how it works, except to be more clear, I would say that the bourgeoisie / capitalists / the very rich (however you want to phrase it) write the bills. Corporations are just paper entities; in capitalist countries they are owned and managed by billionaires and multi-millionaires. Put the blame EXACTLY where it belongs. There is nothing necessarily wrong with corporations if they are publicly owned and benefit the public.
