The internet has just made it much easier to brainwash the weak minded.
Look at all the idiots getting “news” from Facebook.
Look at all the idiots getting radicalized on the internet.
If you wanted alternative views in the 80’s, you discussed them, usually civilly, with others. Or read the Christian Science Monitor for global events. Or personally filtered ABC’s Frank Reynolds and Sandistina Sam Donaldson or CBS’s Dan Rather.
Information was there, if you cared you would find an American Opinion Bookstore ( J@#$ B@#$& Society ran them).
Now , the Morons read it on the net and take it as gospel.
This world is going to Hell on the fast train and I don’t have enough bullets.
