This is in response to the current top post on T_D
I've decided it's best to post later at night to avoid the Trumpbot downvote brigade. They're all sleeping because they have to get up early for school tomorrow
Like Albert Einstein wrote in Why Socialism?
Private capital tends to become concentrated in few hands, partly because of competition among the capitalists, and partly because technological development and the increasing division of labor encourage the formation of larger units of production at the expense of smaller ones. The result of these developments is an oligarchy of private capital the enormous power of which cannot be effectively checked even by a democratically organized political society. This is true since the members of legislative bodies are selected by political parties, largely financed or otherwise influenced by private capitalists who, for all practical purposes, separate the electorate from the legislature. The consequence is that the representatives of the people do not in fact sufficiently protect the interests of the underprivileged sections of the population. Moreover, under existing conditions, private capitalists inevitably control, directly or indirectly, the main sources of information (press, radio, education). It is thus extremely difficult, and indeed in most cases quite impossible, for the individual citizen to come to objective conclusions and to make intelligent use of his political rights.
The ideology of the ruling-class becomes the ruling ideology.
Hey Trump supporters, the "alternative facts" aren't for us - we all know Trump's a liar already. They're for you, because he knows you're stupid enough to believe any old shit.
Trump supporters have been saying all along they know he lies and they don't care.
I care, a lot, that the president of my America lies constantly.
Literally Newspeak and political correctness lol - the thing conservatives accuse others of.
Pay attention, everyone. The media is being manipulated to only talk about what the administration wants to talk about.
The media should be talking about the Executive Order that will be dumping health insurance and mortgage deductions for working class families. They should be asking tough questions of a campaign that got elected pretending they were going to work on behalf of the poor and middle class. But this was another handout to the rich.
The Trump administration knows they can deflect talk of real important events by overblowing drama and the media is addicted to reporting drama especially the 24/7 news channel cycle.
It is only going to get worse, any time the administration needs to deflect talk about a horrible action they just did, Trump will come out and start yelling about something. This is media manipulation tactics made famous by the Soviets. Stop falling for it! Start contacting your representatives and the media and demand they talk about the real important issues instead.
This way you have proof the image wasn't photoshopped.
hopefully CNN can stay this course and not wuss out when it's convenient.
CNN is getting straight savage now. I like it.
