Why This Blog?
Six major Corporations own about 90% of our media. If you go back about 30 years, about 50 Corporations had control. Still small, but allowed for more diversity at least.
Even if they did, they would probably only do so to promote the illusion of choice rather than a real choice. Controlled opposition is how the Communists describe it. You promote opposition only different enough to appear different but the compromise leads towards the desired result anyway. Think Presidential elections for some examples of this strategy.
With only 6 today, I think it is fair to make a few assumptions:
- Corporations act in their own interests
- There is a Central Controlling Interest for Each Corporation
- Money feeds and controls Corporations (think advertisers and lenders- international banks)
- The Controlling Interest Determines What Best Feeds the Corporate Profits
- The Information Produced is Carefully Culled to Produce Results that Benefit the Controlling Interests
The purpose of this blog is to provide the alternative point of view. Alternative to what you may ask? I answer the alternative to the view promoted by the controlling media interests.
You may not like this view and may not agree with it. That’s understandable. There are very powerful forces promoting their own truths that would simply label these points of views as “conspiracy theory”. The operative word there is “theory”. In reality, it is not really a “theory”. It is fact.
Fact is, the wealthy and those with power have been attempting to direct us to fit into their needs for centuries. To paraphrase the discussion that took place in the restaurant in the Matrix Reloaded between Merovingian and Neo’s group:
Choice is an illusion created between those with power and those without.
That illusion is created through the control of information. The control of information is produced by a monopoly control over our information sources in the media and public education as well for that matter.
I hope to provide an alternative to that monopolistic control for those open enough to question.
I will always attempt to back my conclusions up with facts.
My desire is that you question authority and the facts presented as reality by the media monopoly.
I know I am a drop in the bucket compared to the powerful interests represented in the graphic above. However, I would rather do something constructive to alter the course of information flow than stand by and watch our supposed freedoms disappear into thin air. If you feel the same please read on and feel free to offer your own comments as well.
