It may be the status quo that the right-wing of the political spectrum in this country has bragging rights on who has the farthest out, most violent, stupidest supporters. In the entire history of this country it has always been the right that provides the most madness, the least progress, and the greatest potential for sudden violent action.
But the News Pauper maintains that we have reached an era where the old template doesnt quite fit anymore. I have been witnessing a dynamic I am unfamiliar with. Never before has the apparatus for disseminating hatred and misinformation had such a heavily greased track to ride on. I wonder if the stirring I feel is the awakening of a real Godzilla.
Could it be that all the overkill engaged in by the likes of Fox and friends has gone too far and desensitized its target market? They have an apparatus that Goebbels would have recognized and slobbered over, but is the incompetence with which they operate their undoing? It is no longer necessary to invoke the cry for authoritarian tyranny through the false flag. One can traumatize just as severely without giving the masses as much as a hangnail, through the mass media, which the right controls.
My little column and my articles reach perhaps as many as several people. However, if I get one comment affirming my premise, I can assure myself that I havent wasted anyones time. If it were otherwise, I would hope the large readership I was addressing was equally discerning. What will happen to this machine that seems to undermine its own existence? A tool designed to educate cannot be long applied to a purpose opposed to that result. You wouldnt use pliers to hammer a nail, right?
