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

Ignorant about domestic and geopolitical issues mattering most.

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

No exceptions whatsoever. It’s brainwash propaganda.

Toxic sludge for the mind.

Voices like this are NEVER heard on the mainstream media.

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

A sociopathic, puny segment of humanity.

These people pretend to honor and defend democracy.

But are its murderers and undertakers.

Gross injustice, war, grotesque inequality is their handiwork.

And the murder of the planet

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

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

The corporate media is their main line of defense.

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

Is to break their media.

The corporate chokehold on political information is killing us.

Save humanity, the planet and its innocent creatures.

Increase public distrust in the mainstream media.

Defeat their power to mislead.

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

And they never stop.

Some more obviously than others, but they all lie.

So trust no one on the Big Media.

And beware of "entertainment shows".

Most also carry highly toxic imperialist propaganda.

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

The police state.

Or CBS Madam Secretary.

A ridiculous show, like The West Wing.

Telling us the US government is good.

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

That the US establishment—which they represent...

has noble aims. Rubbish!

Get the healing truth from citizens' media.

Like The Greanville Post and similar free voices.

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

Defeat the presstitutes. The media felons.

Become a soldier in the battle of communications.

Which we must win.

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

now it's a matter of survival!

  1. Progressive party by 2020. Don’t we wish. However as things stand now it is practically impossible. The media would deny it recognition and it would be denied access to the electoral process. The Republicans, Democrats and the mass media would unite to destroy it. It would be attacked as a threat to U.S. national security and be subject to the same treatment dished out to MLK et al. What is the point of having a bourgeois dictatorship if you can’t impose it on the masses? The system still retains a great deal of capacity to manipulate a nation of people who hate and fear poor people. Above and beyond that any progressive party would need to come up with an ideology and platform that would move a nation of very confused people. That would take a major paradigm evolution on the left. Then there is the issue of how to protect such an organization from the FBI. I would love to be wrong but it seems to me an economic meltdown must come first. Despite that I am actually optimistic – with what I consider good reason. It is just that Eric’s time line is (in my opinion) too brief.

  2. I disagree with a number of things here, but will confine myself to commenting on “the worst president.” There are two aspects to consider — the worst when it comes to international policies, and the worst when it comes to domestic policies. Bill Clinton took the lead by far, when it comes to the domestic policies upon which our economy, itself, is built.

    Complex issues, but in a nutshell: from FDR to Reagan, the US implemented a range of policies and programs that took the country to its height of wealth and productivity — far from perfect, and yet the best that could be achieved under a capitalist system. Clinton targeted those very policies and programs, effectively cutting the rungs off of the “ladder out of poverty,” playing a big roll in the upward redistribution of US wealth. The US itself has remained on an economic downhill slide, and we go to great lengths to avoid noting these factors, simply writing our poverty crisis out of the discussion. In this way, Clinton not only served the wealthiest few economically, but successfully “divided and conquered” the masses who are not on the right wing. The oligarchs won, the masses lost. This has cleared the way for the implementation of a fascist state.

    1. D.H. Fabian: Agree with your comments. The Clintons hijacked the Democratic Party and removed it as a progressive force.
