As we approach the end of the leap month, the second of the election year, we can say that the trend of the media continues. Free advertising for each unhinged loon, and a detailed critique of each legitimate candidate.
To those who foment it, chaos is a feature, not a bug.
We send this year, worse – as always – than the preceding one, into the trash heap of history as the high mark of misinformation and disinformation in recent history. Control of media by heavily biased (mostly pro-authoritarian and increasingly proto-fascist) interests has been accelerating as obscene wealth concentration increasingly purchases influence.
Next year will be worse.
As a Jewish youth, Heinz Alfred Kissinger fled the Nazi regime. He was among the most profoundly brilliant people I have ever listened to in interviews. I have not looked deeply into it, but I have heard that he received the only perfect record at Harvard. The most salient part of his life, however, was his pro-genocide policy. The fruits of his labors paved the way for the modern variants of fascists.
