We’ve lived so long under the spell of hierarchy—from god-kings to feudal lords to party bosses—that only recently have we awakened to see not only that “regular” citizens have the capacity for self-governance, but that without their engagement our huge global crises cannot be addressed. The changes needed for human society simply to survive, let alone thrive, are so profound that the only way we will move toward them is if we ourselves, regular citizens, feel meaningful ownership of solutions through direct engagement. Our problems are too big, interrelated, and pervasive to yield to directives from on high.

Hillary’s Top Donor Just Bought The Onion — Started Publishing Propaganda Immediately

Click here to access article by Claire Bernish from The Free Though Project.
When it was revealed in January that satirical news outlet, The Onion, had been purchased by Univision Communications (which is co-owned by one of Hillary Clinton’s biggest fans, top campaign donor, and pro-Israel fanatic, Haim Saban), it was if the world suddenly held its breath to see if the move would be the outlet’s downfall.

Now, it appears we have our answer. On Tuesday, an apparent attempt at satirical understatement in actuality proved to be nothing less than a blatant propagandistic fluff piece touting Clinton’s ostensibly stellar career.

It didn’t work.
Where's the evidence that "it didn't work"? Even though astute people like the author didn't fall for the pro-Hillary propaganda, many others probably have. People like Saban don't tend to invest a lot of their money in futile endeavors. That is precisely why the media seem always to parrot the NY Times and the Washington Post which reflect ruling class positions on issues. Just wait to see who wins the election.
