ANDRE DAMON—Billions of people all over the world have embraced the internet precisely because it promised a free and unimpeded way to access and share information. Oppositional and socialist organizations, excluded for decades from the public discourse by the effective monopoly exercised by major newspapers, TV, and radio stations, found an audience hungry for information suppressed by the increasingly discredited establishment media.
John Oliver, like other liberal comics, has been worthless in the fight to alert the public about the dangers posed by the duopoly’s imperialist agenda, and since Trump’s election, has joined the lynch mob trying to get rid of Trump by one means or another. Granted, Trump is simply awful, but he is not the cause of our enormous troubles but a virulent symptom of the cause, which is a decomposing capitalist system deepening all manner of social and political dysfunction, from endless wars to accelerating inequality and immiseration for the vast majority. In that sense he is not much worse than the Clintonites in the Democratic party, because, at the end of the day, both wings of the establishment are doing Wall Street’s bidding. The problem facing the American people and the world is systemic. We are attaching here also a report on the subject by Democracy Now! (which has semi-sold out to the empire, too), but this segment is nonetheless useful.
Keep the caveats in mind.
That said, take this episode of Oliver’s program on Net Neutrality as a plus in an otherwise squalid media horizon.
And also be sure to inspect this program.
Join the pushback against these bastards. And do not trust the Democrats either. Hold everyone to account. Extend no credit. (We are including here a segment showing that while Trump, as noted earlier, is an undiluted disaster and a coarse buffoon, his predecessor the smooth demagog Obama was no better. See why by clicking on the button, and do not forget the lesson. When we speak of a “duopoly” problem and Democratic party betrayals, we know whereof we speak. Yes, many organizations are fighting the FCC on this issue, but they remind us of Lilliputians confronting a giant. Everyone is needed!
