    The more power private capital gets, the more right-wing yuor society will be.  The media is one example.  They didn't need Reagan to be rightist.   He just allowed them not to bother with the mask so much anymore.  As it happened, they didn't need it.  The vast, overwhelming majority of Americans saw no change, and they were correct not to.  Meanwhile the Dems have sought to "compromise" by pursuing pro-corporate, pro-capital policies of their own, which has only served to drive the entire national ethos rightward.  Oh yay.

      from several hundred individual media outlets to 7 to now 4 or 5 major media corporations. Just as he allowed agglomeration across the business sector, the rise of mega corporations, if not started under Reagan, they got their rocketfuel from his deregulation and non-enforcement.

      If I ran this circus, things would be DIFFERENT!
