  • What we have is an entire political system and government with one of its main purposes being to deceive people

    And much more intelligent people than me have noticed that and commented on it, but it's just blatantly and flagrantly obvious now.

    Manufacturing Consent:


    XIV INTRODUCTION Who V^nts to Be a Millionaire and CBS-TV's Survivor^ or with movies like Disney's Lion King that also make possible the cross-selling "syner- gies" that are a focal point oftheir attention and resources. Important branches of the media such as movies and books have had substantial global msrKets for many years> but only in the past two decades has a global media system come into being that is having major effects on national media systems, culture, and politics.^ It has been fueled by the globaiization of business more generally, the associated rapid growth of global advertising, and improved communications tech- nology that has facilitated cross-border operations and control. It has also been helped along by government policy 3Dd the consolidation of neoliberal ideology. The United States and other Western governments have pressed the interests of their home-country firms eager to expand abroad, and the Internstional Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank have done the same, striving with considerable success to enlarge trans- national corporate access to media markets across the globe. Neoliberal ideology has provided the intellectual rationale for policies that have opened up the ownership of broadcasting stations and cable and satellite systems to private transnational invest 01$.

    Obviously not everyone is deceived. You seem to have it all figured out.

      YOU DON'T KNOW ME!

      But yes, I have figured out a lot of things, and a lot of it is just blatantly obvious now.

      Don't worry about it very much. Things will work out eventually.

      I believe o idiot was allowed to win for a reason.
      I would say that reason was to temporarily suppress the voice of reason for a reason.
      if you can suppress the voice of reason by calling people racist or worse, sue them because they don't tickle your was with a feather, well, your going to shut the fork up and hope for the best.
      that's why Trump is kicking are.
      and that's why the left has to listen to npr.

      And some of you listen to the voices in your head.
      You could try NPR once in a while, bucky.
      You just might learn something.

        P s,
        if your a righty....You should listen to npr radio.
        it's virtue signalling on steroids with sappy music behind the stories.
        it's gross, so, have a barf bag handy.
        think nurse ratchet types or that so called educated mental midget that you had to listen to to get A in their class.

          A rightie just won't listen to NPR. They really believe, again based on folks I know, that the media, except for Fox News, is biased and they just are not going to listen to it. Fox News, though, tells both side of the right wing viewpoint and is fair and balanced.

          Hilarious. "Systems" have "deceived" people since the beginning of recorded history (and probably before that)

          It's not the system, it's people are evil twits. They will/can do anything to twist crap in their favor. The police, stumpy, whatever will twist crap in their favor. It's the same in EVERY SINGLE COUNTRY world-wide. The rich get richer, and only in some remote occasions do people become important.

            I agree. Trump, his administration, and his propaganda arm FOX news are doing their best to deceive and mislead the American people. It's treasonous!

            The sad part is, it works for a certain segment of the population.

                Deceivers and deception are everywhere, not just in government. It's part of the human condition. It's just more noticeable in government.
                George Washington was the man who never told a lie. Richard Nixon was the man who never told the truth. Donald Trump is the man who doesn't know the difference.
                Venezuela is what happens when you have Trump without the Madison.

                  Well said Chris. Any "system" will become corrupted and eventually fail if the people running it are dishonest and corrupt and not really doing their jobs.

                  That's obvious

                  And yet...it is particular systems that attract particular kind of players....

                  In our situation in the U.S. the system itself does attract the wrong kind of people that we need... narcissists, sociopaths, and social climbers, and just criminals because it's a system based on Big Money and corporate power, and those kind of people flock to that.
