TODAY. The social media is the massage

Social media is making sweeping and dangerous changes to public information and politics. It’s not as if the effect of new media is a new phenomenon in Western culture.

For centuries, the Catholic church held grip on information – everything was in Latin, in hand-writing, and accessible only to a few – almost all monks and religious officials.

In the16th Century, the arrival of the printing press brought about drastic changes – the Bible in national languages, more widely accessible, and the spread of literacy – the rise of Protestant religions and of nationalism,

In the 1930s, the Nazis had a great time with new technology – radio.

Under Goebbels’s direction the Volksempfänger, or “people’s receiver,” was born.

Under Goebbels’s direction the cheap Volksempfänger, or “people’s receiver,” was developed . The Nazis took control of all radio organizations and programming. While many Germans did not read newspapers, radio was quickly taken up by the majority of households, and was also transmitted by loudspeakers in town squares. The nation was effectively blanketed by Nazi radio propaganda 11 hours a day, was to a certain extent brainwashed into acquiescence.

So – now we have the joys of Facebook. Twitter, Youtube and others, effectively controlled to a large degree by algorithms devised for such information authorities as the CIA, National Security Agency (NSA), and The Atlantic Council.

As we head towards World War 3, with the West against Russia-China, and the nuclear industry and weapons corporations salivating over the current and future profits, we are allowed (as Caitlin Johnstone has pointed out) – to freely express our dissent. It’s just that other people won’t actually get to read it or hear it.

  1. They murdered mollions and the industialists that foinanced the Nazis used slave labor to enrich themselves many are still rich. Never taken to task. Germany is not as great as people think. So many poor and homeless, stark contrast of rich and poor.
