DJ....I enjoy a lot of freedom to discuss all kinds of things here in NL. I am-for that matter-very, very lucky !  I have a basic right to disagree on lots of things-even go on the internet and mention it...Most of the world does not enjoy such democratic freedoms...

[url][/url] or ;

Mencken-Award-winning investigative journalist Eric Zuesse produces the definitive critical work on the invasion of Iraq. Exposes smoking gun that proves Bush knowingly lied about WMD. Explains why U.S. major media went along with Bushs fraud. Details crucial role Americas Christian Right played even more important than neo-cons. Reveals Bushs plan for rejuvenating Holy Roman Empire as Holy American Empire.

Eric Zuesse also a historian - so "not just somebody"....

The consumer will choose which type of fool to be (such as a fool of Democratic Party billionaires, or a fool of Republican Party billionaires), and will buy (believe) whatever lies he or she wants. But is that — belief in the political falsehoods that the individual prefers — really democracy? Won’t the result be instead to cement-in whatever myths that are setting different groups in the society against each otherinstead of going against whatever is actually wrong with the Government? How will whatever is wrong with the Government get fixed, that way? Is it even possible?

Scientific empirical studies that compare what the American public want to become laws in America and of what they don’t want to become laws, versus what actually does become law and what does not, have shown that only the preferences of the very wealthiest Americans affect and shape the nation’s laws. This is a one-dollar-one-vote country, not a one-person-one-vote country. (This is an empirical fact, not a theory.) America’s Government is an aristocracy, not a democracy. It’s controlled by counting the wealth, not really by counting the persons. Furthermore, 57.16% of the money that is donated to political campaigns in the U.S. comes from the richest one-ten-thousandth (top 0.01% wealthiest) of the American people (the “original donors” — the actual individuals who donated it); so, the individuals who own the controlling interests in the corporations, think tanks, foundations, and media that shape public opinion in America and who thus determine who becomes elected and who does not, are only the very richest few, America’s actual aristocrats, the people who control the public. The public thus vote the way that the super-rich of both Parties want them to vote. There is a technology of “manufactured ‘public’ consent,” and it’s controlled by the billionaires — NOT by the public. And whereas Democratic Party billionaires determine who get nominated by their Party, and Republican billionaires determine who get nominated by their Party, virtually no one gets elected who wasn’t first selected and backed by that Party’s billionaires.

Since those few individuals control the media, they ALSO are the ULTIMATE employers of the various censors — both on the Republican side and on the Democratic side.

DJ..."outsourcing" freedom of speech to private media-then claim it is their policies that go for censorship- is taking place all over the "privatize everything" western world...

"Never waste a good crisis" as "a profit oppertunity" results in exploiting pandemics, wars, climate collapse...NOT solving it...

We may end up in a "west" with the same problems "Americans" had before 1776, the French did see before elite only getting richer at the cost of all others....

Main difference between the 18th century and the 21st century is in the risks....we may NOT survive social collapse now...

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.
