3. One of the most important things I ever heard was a talk by Robert McChesney,...

a professor at UIUC and media critic. (From 2002-2012, he hosted the Media Matters radio show, not to be confused with the Media Matters for America group). McChesney discussed post-WWII history; how one of the first things the Allies did was break up the media monopolies of the Axis powers, arguing that media concentration aids and abets fascism. He further argued that we need a taste of our own medicine. And in fact, we used to have some pretty good laws and regulations about media concentration, most of which have been repealed.
