    the whole operation. They control the narratives; they control the frames; they incline toward approval or disapproval on the few things they'll even allow to be discussed.

    It's driven me mad over the years that people don't seem to realize that whatever it is they care about: climate change; rights; economy; .... you name your favorite topic.

    It will never be allowed into the common space, the space shared by all 300 million regardless of their biases and predilections. Should it appear, it will be hedged by professional liars who are treated equally with people trying to reason from facts. We will be having "global climate change" debates 15 years after the fact is established, weakening political will by weakening public understand.

    Oh, wait. We have been having, not "we will be." QED

    Meaning: your favorite issue? Kiss it goodbye; or wait ten or twenty years longer than you should because the most effective propaganda/psy-ops operation in human history is being run on everyone, every day. And to keep your issue down or out.

    (Don't get tv or radio? You still think about what they put out, just because everyone else does. Going to the NY Times online is going to the NY Times in the end.)

    Anybody serious about winning: Focus on how we change which narratives get into mass-reach Media. Otherwise, suffer needlessly.

    Unify on this one goal first, all other tasks become vastly easier.
