Reader comments about this quote:
Television has been a huge tool in creating and advancing the socialist's common culture (the banker's/elitest'ss statist theocracy) BUT, the goal would have been accomplished with or without TV. By way of example, look at the pre-TV trifecta of 1913: The Federal Reserve, Income Tax and the 17th Amendment (no more State - or individuals thereof representation but rather, the Fed's representatives to the common culture). State seminaries (government schools), the rest of the government's industrial medial complex, compelled compliance, license, victimless crimes, larceny with impunity, non-recognition of individual sovereign rights and the rest of the statist theocracy's applied legal positivism (as is averse to the laws of nature and of nature's God) were/are all part of accomplishing (ANTI - freedom, liberty, laws, justice, rights) common culture goals.

    ... and what, Dr. J., was "our goal:" was it mine, as well .. or don't individuals count in the group "our" ?

    It is not so much that TV is used to accomplish collectivist goals, but that such power is being used to 'program' the populace more easily than during any other time in history. But with the advent of the Internet, the Information Wave covering the planet, the common man now has access to information gleaned from the ages at his fingertips. A global awakening -- and reckoning -- is inevitable.

    Television caused Nixon, who actually won the debate against JFK in 1960, to lose the election. Pictures in motion can be more powerful than words.

    sooo.. what is "our" goal.. and how did "we" accomplish it? how was it coordinated through TV?
