5. Good point. We masses had a better chance when religion was our opiate.

 

TV is much more insidious than religion. Maybe the difference is the same as the difference between reading the book versus watching the movie.

We must claim the air waves back as a public resource, and dedicate some portion of over-the-air TV to public education.

There's always the chance that such TV will fail to entertain. Then it will be like Marie Antoinette famously said: "Let them watch cable".
