politics, television & the grand illusion

public opinion. what is it? democracy. educated electorate, enlightened population.  freedom of speech. freedom of expression. freedom from oppression. the group mind is made of individuals. individuals are subject to groupthink. minds of the masses manipulated by the invisible government. corporate media. propaganda. profits take precedence over truth. ideologies shaped, viewpoints formed for you in the interests of the most powerful. viewers sold fabricated nonsense. puppet politicians preach as they manufacture consent. flags wave, people clap. sound bites taken out of context. a small group of “capitalists” consciously and intelligently controlling the habits, opinions and viewpoints of consumers around the globe. changing the culture. selling a lifestyle. selling the american dream. selling human lives as products. the consumer is sold by the television networks to the advertising agencies. presidential candidates are sold to the public by the media. debates, rallies, speeches, sitcoms, reality shows, talk shows, are all filmed, staged events where audiences clap and cheer when instructed. where do you get your news? what do you take as truth? are you a free-thinking individual or has your worldview been shaped for you?
