What is the role of the media here in this current economic system?
Obviously, it is here because of profit and is here to support the lies of the elite. The advertisements which are being paid to the television stations, magazines and newspapers by the elite – are the lifeblood of the media. If they are told to lie by them, they will do just that to keep their job. The power being vested to the elite because they have more money, while poor people become their maids or drivers, supports inequality in this current monetary system.
Advertising, marketing and sales are just tools being used to support consumerism in capitalism. The media is behind all these, brainwashing people in a subtle way, through subliminal messages in print or multi – media. This creates a world run by the media and people are being impulse to buy things because people believe the lies being said in radio and in television. Actors and actresses are also being used to support consumerism, creating ideas about the perfect body image, so people will desire to buy products they endorse in the media.
In an equal money system, there is no one to profit from what is being said. There will be no elite, so there will be no one bribing the media to distort the truth. Therefore there will be no lies in the media. It will be used to expose people abusing the system. Media men will not be enslaved by their need to keep their jobs because there will be equal money for everyone, No one will work in exchange for money but will work to assist all to live life in dignity. They will not be able to impulse people through print and multi-media; rather they will use the media to work for what is best for all.
In an Equal Money System, people in the media who will lie and distort the truth will be sent for correction and will be supported so he/she can correct himself/herself, because it tacitly implies that the person has a mental illness – possibly fears that make him tell lies. Most of the time it is not him that suffers the consequences, it is others. As parents, we also do not want our children to lie, so let us live that same truth and not lie. If we lie our children and our children’s children will suffer the consequences. Why suffer, live in fear and lie when we can create a world where we see each other as equals – and enjoy life?
It is really awesome to live in a world where life is truly honored and where the media is here to let everyone know about how people assist each other and in different ways. I can also see that if there is any correction going on somewhere, the media will also let everyone know about this
