This is a great comment. It is important that we distinguish ourselves from the conspiracy theorists by providing a more sophisticated analysis of power. Because you’re right: it’s not so much a top-down sinister conspiracy, but more like some great headless blundering juggernaut operating under the illusion of a masterplan.

This is tricky for a lot of people to understand, but it is essential.

That said... there is, on the other hand, no denying that between the mainstream media conglomerates AND the social media giants — what we’ve got is essentially a very small handful of billionaires controlling almost all the information we get to see. Basically I think you and the anon above you, are both correct.

Something to think about.
