  •  It was not my ambition to reassure you. That, you (0+ / 0-)

    have to do for yourself. I was just discussing some of the factors involved, and explaining how I don't find the scenarios historically equivalent.

    Yes, I did say that the mainstream media abdicates much of its responsibility. But, the evolution of the Internet and the blogosphere limits the degree to which that facilitates the developments you fear. Even the major networks now MUST monitor Twitter and the major blogs, for fear they'll miss essential stories and perspectives. They can't afford to miss those and see a competitor beat them to it. I am talking about the major networks other than Fox. (Obviously they have an overt political agenda.) Further, they have more to lose than you may imagine in the event of a government takeover of the airwaves, which would HAVE to happen for a Nazi-like scenario to occur in this country. Otherwise the opposition has too many opportunities and avenues to coordinate that opposition.

    I am fairly bullish on our future.
