ccess a populist i…n unfathomably powerful class with a vested interest in keeping those manipulations up and running. But since the oligarchy rules by creating the illusion of freedom and democracy using propaganda it is by far the weakest point in its armor, and with the democratization of information available to our society via unprecedented internet access a populist information rebellion could definitely kill all public trust in the lie factory. This would ruin an essential foundation of the oligarchy.
This is already happening, and they are already freaking about the weakening hold of the usual propaganda. Hence more manufactured controversy , which does become real controversy. But…it’s all changing and quickly.
