Just think about it. It’s 2012. And most of us are living fast food, junk food lives. Oblivious to what’s out there beyond the fast food information sent to us by the big media corporations.Today's capture of the minds of ordinary people by the boob-tube (TV) and all the other corporate media is very much like a wet-dream that Joseph Goebbels probably had during the late 1930s. It is so powerful in its influence that few ordinary people are conscious of its control of their ideas, values, and behaviors.
One thing that really bothers me is that many activists are too concerned about how their actions will be portrayed in mainstream, McLife media, and thus, allow their actions to be shaped accordingly. I think that little headway can be made against the juggernaut of capitalist culture until activists realize that they must place a high priority on establishing their own media and weaning people away from McLife media.
