Hollywood and academia might still be firmly in the grip of the orthodox left, but part of the media has managed to wriggle free. Liberals still cant get over this fact, and their rearguard actions to regain control come in different forms: some, like our Presidents objections, are innocuously transparent and amusing; others, like a recent research report on the future of media by the Brookings Institution, are more circuitous and perhaps more worrying.

This terrifies the left, but frankly it terrifies some conservatives, who have come to believe that the model for society should be centralized and authoritarian and state centered, just with the good guys in power.
Information flows are smashing this model all over the world, and the results cannot be anything but good. This is a really good article if you want to gloat a bit over the panicked hysteria of the left.
The real question is NOT whether we will have authoritarianism or more liberty, but how much pain we will have to go through to get to a more decentralized society.
Statism is dead as an intellectual force, and the internet killed it.
Ahhh. Shades of van jones. Commie at large. Hmmm. How much of his wealth is he givin’ up?
Sorry. The ever affable van jones (on cnn now?) used to always use the “top down, bottom up” “catch phrase” when talking about fundamental change. In one of his diatribes to young skulls full of mush he kept shouting (about who, I don’t know) “Give them the wealth. Give them the wealth”. Don’t know if he was talking about poor people, native Americans,???. He was a fauxbama advisor out of oakland/sanfran area. Avowed commies POS.
Leftists talking about “bottom up” and decentralization is like Gene Wilder in blackface on Silver Streak.
They might know the words, but that is all they know.
LOL! They know what’s good for them and screw the makers. “You guys just keep makin’ and we’ll keep takin’.” (But don’t let it interfere with your new found “free” time.)
The first two words are at odds with the rest of the sentence.
Read the whole article. Good find, Thank-you.
I wish everyone thought that way.
