Without an absolutely free and independent Fourth Estate - press and journalism - we are no better than any other de facto dictatorship - facism is not only thigs killing people, it is corporate dominance over the nation! Without a totally free and dedicated press that informs with the truth and nothing but, we are not a democracy at all, but a vast crooked casino for the greedy-rich to con the rubes!
Democracy, such as it is, is very (obviously) easily manipulated and the public lied-to by corrupt self-interested politicians, subversive corporate influence and big-money, any such manipulation of that critical fourth leg of our republic - truth - must not be tolerated! The airwaves were supposed to be the peoples, used to be, but they were sold-off by politicians for campaign-contribution bribes and should be taken back! Now we are witnessing the wide criminal attempt to sell-off more of the public’s resources, wealth held in common, and critical infrastructure by trump & co to for-profit parasites!
Bugger the BS “free enterprise” vulture capitalist theft of The Commons and “privatization” (euphemism for theft!) of public services and those things that make a nation truly “great” rather than being a playground for greed and usury by the rich and powerful!
Privatize the airwaves, media and press, health-care, education, transportation and war…gifts by political crooks and co-conspirators to corrupt greedy scum that will, and do, stop at nothing to increase their wealth by abusing notions of the Common Good by robbing the 99%!
