Skip to comments.New Book: 'Let's Nationalize Fox News,' Let Unions Decide What's News
Posted on 01/19/2014 2:46:33 AM PST by grimalkin
Just imagine! Imagine a world without Fox News and Rush Limbaugh. Salon.com released an excerpt from the upcoming book "Imagine: Living in a Socialist USA" that asks its readers to do just that.
The writers of the book want a socialist America, one that would have "a democratic, accessible-to-all media" controlled by "working people [who will] collectively and individually influence mass culture." The book abhors capitalist societies' news, which it says is "selected, organized, and presented by an army of self-important publishers, editors, and writers who follow their corporate employers' political line."
In this new socialist society that has "erased corporate control," there will no longer be advertisements filling newspapers or commercial breaks on TV. The media would be owned by "labor unions, neighborhood associations, and cultural centers." That way, the "media can represent the interests of working people" -- not the interests of corporate sponsors. (snip)
This guide to utopia will be available January 21, 2014 for the low, low capitalist price of $15.99.

I was in Russia for the first time in 1992. It was amazing to see what Communism (socialism on steroids).
Many people were walking around like zombies. There were incapable of thinking for themselves. Alcoholism was rampant. Nothing produced was of any value.
Things have gotten much better after 20 years, but it will take another 20 years before the country is caught up with the West.
Anyone who has experienced this would be insane to support Obama and his minions.
>> “erased corporate control,”
And sketch in iron-fisted fairness.
If one looks at the Mission of Truth Revolt and its principals, he/she would see many younger Bill Ayers and confused, demented white boys.
Will they get it right this time?
You gotta figure that after, what, a thousand tales, odds gotta be this time it comes up heads.
I was in Russia in 1991 and 1993 and I saw the same thing.
As we would agree, socialists never learn anything. They just keep on repeating the same mistakes.
An ideology that bases its entire existence on lies needs to be destroyed, It’s believers institutionalized and it’s champions publicly flogged.
Have at it.
For the life of me I can’t understand how the other channels stay alive.
Kill news off comoletely
96% of all union jobs are gubmint.,
We’ll learn how mentally ill they are if they are allowed to be architects, when they are mere brick layers...
“its champions publicly flogged.”
Public flogging just isn’t going to get the job done. Well maybe. The surer way of course cannot be talked about, and even that doesn’t last because each new generation has its fence sitting socialists. It’s just part of some humans inner self. Recognizing and learning truth as well as acknowleging who the author of all truth is and learning to trust in God rather than Marx would help in the war that has been fought since the creation of this world and man to populate it. The war of good vs evil.
We know who ultimately wins but the war must be fought continually because there are two sides.
That would be a child that only a mother could love. While we have whackos on our end of the political scale (by probability), they do not get any publicity until they actually act out. The left celebrates its extremists as prophets of a golden age and promised land.
I need tell none of my fellow FReepers that this ‘Utopia’ is actually a distopia, a society that would crush the spirit and mind to achieve a momentary goal and then fail the society completely. Somehow I see Mao’s “Great Leap Forward” as a predecessor and the millions of deaths along with the follow-on power struggles and recriminations that led to the “Cultural Revolution” as being a sign post on the road that should not be taken.
Ah Well, these idiots always see a field of greener grass on the other side of the road and say to the naive and gullible, “This time we will get it right!” WRONG!
Some animals are more equal than other animals.
Well, so much for any of that First Amendment nonsense!
“Anyone who has experienced this would be insane to support Obama and his minions.”
Liberals are like the abused woman who always takes back her abusive husband. This time it will be different.
I heard a college professor at a party saying something to the effect that, “It (communism) failed because ‘they’ put the wrong people in charge. We could do it the right way in this country.” (Where, presumably, “we” would put “him” in charge.)
The one that comes up through the struggle and becomes wealthy has every right to feel important about him or herself
The one that dreams of being powerful and only he or she is capable for that power is another.
The article is projecting.
What socialism does it makes children out of adults. Israel found out that immigrants from socialist countries like the Soviet Union had the hardest time adapting to freedom. Everything was done for them in the SU. They were treated like children and told what to do and when to do it. The free enterprise system demands that you act as an adult.

Thats what you get when when all your authors are gay liberal progressive butt humpers.
