That the media is owned by the same class of people who aspire to rule is self evident. In order to achieve high estate you must believe and play by the rules. People who do not reflect that when the find themselves debating what color I phone to get or where to burn collosal amounts of fossil fuel to go on holiday they are compromising their children’s future. The employees of these people (just about everyone) have surrendered their ethical/moral autonomy in exchange for the opportunity to stack away their surplus wealth to fund the destruction of the planet and the killing and maiming of the third world so they can enjoy profligate retirement.
The media can only dominate our lives if we continue to support it.
