Trolls like "d" HATE democracy because they distrust people in general and only trust LEADERS who are supposedly wiser than us. Bullschitt.

Democracy requires a free press. That's why there is no democracy in the USA, because the press are entertainers, showing teeth and tapdancing to get better ratings and hence SELL MORE ADS, which is their true vocation. They are money-making entertainers, not truthseekers.

And TV-believing dupes like "d" are obedient tools for the ruling elite. d, they will use you, abuse you and discard you. They don't care about you. You are not one of them. Democracy is your only hope. And hence, a free press is your only hope for justice. Because you're buying what corporate news is selling you, you will remain their devoted servant.

Do you want democracy or do you want a police state? It's one or the other. They are mutually exclusive.

The US could have killed alll of the reporters in the Nam, and you still would have been beaten. Nice try but you get a D for this one.
