Right now there is far too much allowed of the opinion figures on the Right Wing. Mostly because the people that pay attention to it, lack the education to ignore hyperbole, misdirection, propaganda, and marketing. The issue occurs on the left side as much, but because as can be seen most of the productivity skews towards Liberal markets, the message of mass calamity does not spread there.
Can you really say the left wing of the US is "economically" liberal?
Yes it is . Especially within the US. The main issues though are that companies do need to be held back from exploiting labor. That is not in conflict with liberal economics.
This puts Republican politicians in a bind. Do they compromise as Democrats attempt to do, or hold out and keep making bad decisions, while blaming the left, on their constituents behalf. It keeps their constituents angry enough to keep most of them in power, but slowly they lose their markets and their messaging. The current situation with Trump shows the issue. Trump lost the election, but here he is daring Republicans to cross the lines so he can punish them as well with his power to control the message and the base.
Some sort of fairness doctrine needs to be put back in place as right now far too many Trumplicans are watching the Fox News version of the Jerry Springer show, and they think it is real.
Fairness doesn't just work one way.
No it doesn't, but at the end of the day, it is not the folks that live in dense urban competitive markets that need it. It is the folks in the rural areas where big companies such Sinclair have gutted news rooms and controlled the messages to all those :"Red Counties"
Not just education and infrastructure, but also connectivity with rest of the world, ability to attract talents, and such. Many of these factors are difficult to impossible to attain outside big cities even if it is America.
Very true, as evidenced above with companies such as Sinclair and Fox News Radio networks.
Mostly because the people that pay attention to it, lack the education to ignore hyperbole, misdirection, propaganda, and marketing.
This is the most misrepresented fallacy I see repeated. Do you not think there is somewhat of a trade off between uneducated urban voters and uneducated rural voters? I would say they might even cancel each other out. As long as Democrats continue to think it’s the uneducated masses supporting republicans there will never be civil debate on the issues when that’s your starting position. This kind of thinking needs to be banished forever.
There is a big tradeoff as stated above. Urban voters get the whole story surrounding them by reality and competing Media Markets . Rural voters get fed their view of life by controlling entities such as Sinclair Networks or Fox News Radio. Those with less education aren't able to discern that they are already being controlled in their thoughts by being fed one sided information. As evidenced by the GDP graphic, people in demographic areas prone to democratic voting are far from lazy, and far from productive, yet that is the prevailing lie of Right wing sources.
As for banishing thinking positions, why don't you try to understand media monopolies and misinformation rather than banning opposite thought points?
Banning Opposition is something that China does regularly.
There is no need to go that far. The GOP if the party of business, the party of money, the party of less taxes leading to more business and more jobs. Yet where the GOP has power, there is less business and less money.
This is in a nutshell the biggest issue with the GOP. They pretend Businesses are people, and they ignore the needs to the people .
