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.

Think!

^0Americans are the most over-entertained, uninformed people on the planet.^3000

Ignorant about domestic and geopolitical issues mattering most.^3000

The most important act anyone can do is stop using all mainstream media.^3000

No exceptions whatsoever. It’s brainwash propaganda. ^3000

Toxic sludge for the mind.^3000

Voices like this are NEVER heard on the mainstream media.^3000

The "1%" is the global plutocracy, the billionaires.^3000

A sociopathic, puny segment of humanity.^3000

These people pretend to honor and defend democracy.^3000

But are its murderers and undertakers. ^3000

Gross injustice, war, grotesque inequality is their handiwork. ^3000

And the murder of the planet^3000

Just 8 billionaires own as much wealth as HALF of all humanity.^3000

That's 8 guys are richer than 4 billion people.^3000

The corporate media is their main line of defense.^3000

That's why the best way to break their hold on us...^3000

Is to break their media.^3000

The corporate chokehold on political information is killing us.^3000

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

Increase public distrust in the mainstream media.^3000

Defeat their power to mislead.^3000

They lie 24/7. They sell you war. Injustice. Death. Confusion.^3000

And they never stop.^3000

Some more obviously than others, but they all lie. ^3000

So trust no one on the Big Media.^3000

And beware of "entertainment shows". ^3000

Most also carry highly toxic imperialist propaganda.^3000

Like the fungal NCIS series. Or "24", glorifying DHS. ^3000

The police state.^3000

Or CBS Madam Secretary. ^3000

A ridiculous show, like The West Wing. ^3000

Telling us the US government is good.^3000

That the president is good...that its cabinet is good.^3000

That the US establishment—which they represent...^3000

has noble aims. Rubbish!^3000

Get the healing truth from citizens' media.^3000

Like The Greanville Post and similar free voices. ^3000

Do your part to break the power of the mainstream media.^3000

Defeat the presstitutes. The media felons.^3000

Become a soldier in the battle of communications. ^3000

Which we must win.^3000

As the ruling cliques prepare the world for nuclear war...^3000

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.
