  •  Redstone forgot the "enlightened" part (4.00)
    of "enlightened self-interest."

    Media moguls really believe they can indefinitely profit from churning out propaganda for fascists, with no cost to themselves. That's because they have no thought for the long run.

    Too bad, because, as Keynes said, "In the long run, we are all dead." I think if this country does not change its course soon, the rich will reach that long run a lot sooner than the rest of us.


    •  To add to that (none)
      And in the short run (i.e. a single careerspan) the media moguls will be dead. They're not worried about the future, it's all greed for the here and now. Who cares about the people left after they're dead. I think they believe there is NO cost to themselves, and whatever there could be will happen after they're dead.

      It's not likely the fascists are going to turn on the media moguls because they're either the same people or doing their bidding because it's "in their (business) interest."

      Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition.
