An old post, bu worth replying to.


The simple answer is "never."


To explain, back in the 50s and 60s when the Republican Party made the transition from liberal to conservative, they passed up the Democrats on the political spectrum, making the the Democrats "liberal in comparison." Which was fine for the now-conservative Republicans, as it gave them a chance to rail against "the liberals." As a result, many people are of the mind that the Democrats made a similar transition in the opposite direction, when in reality they did not. What it boils down to is that many people equate Democrats with liberals when Democrats are not liberal at all.

ProRegressive media that "Leans Foward" is still more concerned about the pigmentation in someone's skin instead of the content of their character.

What's so "funny" is that they think they're exempt from the socialist policies....  hence, they cry so loud when the Obama administration started spying on them, etc.  If they read history, they'd know that socialist states control the media.

Not scary and not true. The media in both places is controlled by a handful of corporations. That is the scary truth you all willfully ignore.

Wow!  I think I remember you saying you had lived under Soviet rule, but I didn't know that your country was also taken over by the Nazis too.  And on top of that, you lost your family?  If you don't mind me asking, who raised you?


Yes, anyone that reads just a little bit of history knows that the media was taken over by the socialist governments so that the truth wasn't told.  And those who dared to speak out against tyranny were usually murdered, sending a message to everyone else to keep in line.  Sadly, most of our current "media" is working with the government instead of exposing the corruption.  The government doesn't need to actually take it over because the media is already the mouthpiece of the government.  This is why pretty much all of the dozens of Obama scandals are either ignored by the media or the media is making excuses for Obama while attacking anyone trying to get to the truth of the scandals.  (Or blatant anti-Constitutional acts by politicians.)  Instead of being like Woodward and Bernstein, most of the current media are just the propoganda arm of the administration and the rest of the proregressives.  (This is why when conservative/libertarian policies work, the media buries it!  Like what's happening in WI with Gov, Scott Walker

Since when do conservative/right-libertarian policies work? Privatization and deregulation don't work. They gave us slavery, robber barons, the truck system, scrip, child labor, unsafe working conditions, long hours, no overtime, no weekends, etc.

But yeah, explain again how people like me are the "ProRegressives." Explain how your policies will move the country forward. You know you can't so you just turn on the doublethink and pretend that everyone who disagrees with your absurd positions is trolling you.

This is a Star Trek forum, you and your fellow conservatives are the trolls. Unless of course this is the Mirror Universe in which case I suspect there are atheists and liberals running around the Left Behind forums calling all the real fans trolls, too.

Look at China's media, and in Britain the stations to watch are BBC1, BBC2, BBC3, etc. (you get the idea).


That's what it will be like here soon. Except BRCKOBM-1, BRCKOBM-2, BRCKOBM-3, etc.

Yea....  spouting the government propoganda... pretty much like the USA's media currently does.  It's also fun watching (translated) videos of media from other authoritarian countries like Iran, North Korea, etc.  It was interesting to see them barely mention anything about government spying on citizens.... until they were spied on.  Then they were outraged that the press was spied on.  They think they're exempt from the tyranny the rest of the citizens are forced to endure.


That's one of the major problems with socialism.... it forces two classes - the government and the slaves.  Our current media is just aligning itself with the government.  Thankfully, the internet has made it possible for anyone and everyone to report the news. (It also allows people to just "report" falsehoods too.)  This allows a lot of competition instead of only a single government controlled mouthpiece.  Over time, as different sources are proven correct over and over again, the average citizen will move to them.  That's why some older media outlets are failing fast and newer ones (telling the whole truth) are growing extremely fast.
