The biggest delusion that I see displayed on ATS is the notion that taking a red pill instantly removes all delusion, from then on the woke people are immune from delusion.

In my experience, it takes years, decades even, of hard work and evaluation, and still, some delusion remains. But that's just me. Maybe I'm slower than the average woke person.


This is why I recently started going back and watching old videos to compare the times from then to now. I want to see the contrast, but what I'm coming to see is that there isn't much contrast, and many have predicted where we'll be.

So I am in the middle of that video I posted, I'll finish it sometime this weekend.... I'll rewatch some of the presidential debates from past eras, and also some more documentaries from the dissident type like Chomsky but of different political beliefs.

Also, send me a message after you watch that, I'm curious to hear your take on it. While we are somewhat relevant to the topic, I don't want to derail too much.

Yes it is. The rich make the rules. Ergo why a politician can violate securuty rules, but a Private goes to jail. Why a rich persons unqualified kid goes to A-list school on scholly, while same qualified poor kid gets nothing. Why POS Jordan Belfort does less time than a POS doing crack.

It IS about rich vs poor. Prove me wrong.


Not always.

There are very, very wealthy people whose money get them very little.

Rush Limbaugh was rich enough to become part owner of an NFL team, but because of his politics, he was blocked by the angry voices of those with far, far less money than he has. If your assumption that money always equals power to do what you want is correct, then he would have become a part owner because his money would have been far more important than all those angry voices of the little people.

How many times have large corporate sponsors pulled their spots from shows because of the angry voices of little people with no money? But, but, but the *rich* have the power to do what they want. If it's only money that matters, the rich corporations would advertise exactly where and how they want without regard to what the consumers say ... after all, we have to buy what they produce, right? Isn't that the skewed view y'all have? We have no power at all over the rich corps to influence them? They have all the money and power.

But our angry voices change how they advertise apparently.

How about that guy who was caught making racist remarks on tape and was forced into giving up his NBA ownership? How rich was he? What good did that money do him? Where was his power to change those rules to suit himself in that instance?

I note that you whine about the parents rich enough to buy their kids into college, but you don't seem to care about the ones who get bonus points added onto their applications for being this or that minority group. What makes that any fairer than bribing your way in if you are a middle class kid trying to make it in the hard way? You can't change how you're born any more than you can give your parents extra money.

Chomsky's Propaganda Model is still relevant today.

I think that if you put his politics aside, and listen to how he presents facts about the media, it hard to argue against his conclusion. I think many like to deny it, but I'd certainly be open to listening to anyone who can argue it.

He has good things to say

One thing I would question is how does he feel now that an ideology close to his is manufacturing consent in campuses

He still speaks against it.

Chomsky is and was always very critical of post modernism, more so than many I've read. In france he defended the free speech rights of Holocaust Deniers from far-left socialists. He is pretty much a free speech absolutist, and is always in favor of protecting the dissenter, no matter what his allegiance.

Whine? So if your kid got denied a full ride scholly over some bs rich kid... You'd be good with that? Disengenuous. And fat tard Limbaugh!!!! Lol. The same dude that imported an ass load of drugs? Enough that most peeps would have done hard time?

And if you think your examples lost money... Then your are naive or just dim.

It is and has been the way of the collegiate world for many, many years. In the world of collegiate athletics, for example, boosters have always run the show and it's been perfectly legal. If the high roller booster wants a specific HS athlete to be offered a free ride, then that athlete has been offered the free ride and it's 100% legal and openly talked about... I don't see any difference between that and what the media built a furor over recently where non-athlete wealthy students are concerned. Seems like bitching just to bitch.

What are you smoking?

You wanted examples of places where money didn't equal power and make the rules. I gave them to you. I didn't say that money never equaled power only that it wasn't an absolute the way many have been brainwashed to believe it is. You included.

I like how you skipped right over the examples of boycotts having an affect on large corps that are often perceived as having endless power because they have all the money too in favor of smearing Limbaugh and perceiving me whining in defense of wealthy kids.

I did no such thing only pointed out that if it's wrong to bribe your way past admissions standards, it's equally wrong to circumvent them by checking off a skin color box which is simply another form of bribe. Since my child will have to fight both forms of admissions "pass", I'm not sure why you think I favor either form of cheat.

i starred your post because instead of having a mental gymnastics debate with you as to whether or not the msm is pushing a narrative that says its ok to be racist to white people, i will agree to the supreme logic of your first and second sentences.

it is not ok to hate on anyone because of their color, religion, sex... is the mantra we should all be repeating over and over again. STAY CALM AND DON'T BE RACIST
OHMMMMMMM OHMMMMMMM
