Historically speaking the United States, United Kingdom, and Australia have a lot in common. Yet, their shared history pales in comparison with their contemporary commonalities. And none of their more recent shared characteristics are more revealing than these:
1. Their leadership is the most committed to the continued war and occupation in Iraq.
2. All three country's leaders are highly unpopular with their respective electorate.
3. Despite the devastating political consequences, all three leaders in all three nations continue to ignore the will of the people they supposedly represent and fiercely defend and, at least in one instance, insist upon escalating the war in Iraq.
Still, perhaps, there is one thing the three nations have in common that is the single most important and defining contemporary characteristic: In each country the Australian-born mega-media mogul, Rupert Murdoch (FOX and FOX News), controls a large portion of the so-called mainstream press. But it is more than that, the Australian Murdoch CONTROLS a great deal of the information being disseminated to the electorate of each country.
In democratic societies, media information is power. The press is the means by which people obtain the information that they use to decide who they will, or will not elect to lead their nation. In Mister Murdoch's media world the U.S., U.K., and Australia are all being led by the candidates that he and his media empire have endorsed. Interesting, too, that all of Mister Murdoch's "boys" are roundly rejected by the people they are supposed to represent and yet, feel no need to submit to the wishes and desires of their respective electorate.
Thanks to Rupert Murdoch's propaganda media, these so-called leaders no longer have to concern themselves with the people...Murdoch's media empowers them with just enough legitimacy and political cover to make them almost relevant. Indeed, the Australian Murdoch's support makes Mister Bush, Blair, and Howard just relevant enough to make them extremely dangerous to the democracies they represent, and, too, the entire world.
The politicians tucked safely beneath the protective arm of Rupert Murdoch's propaganda media, never have to worry about paying the full political price for their failed policies and corruption. They can rule in Roman Emperor-like fashion, without impunity.
Some say Mister Murdoch's politics and global propaganda network simply supports the Conservative political view, but his brand of politics is Conservative in name only. In essence and practice it is much more devious, dangerous, and stygian. Rupert Murdoch's brand of political media is much more akin to a lethal virus that, once unleashed upon a nation, devours the very soul of its democracy.
With little more than a passing glance, as if the invisible hand of Lucifer were at work, one can see that the democracies in the U.S., U.K., and Australia are being torn asunder. In each nation, citizen has been pitted against citizen and the onetime elected officials have begun to treat their people less as co-equals and more like their personal serfs.
And the common thread weaving through the death throes of these three great Western democracies is the Australian-born Rupert Murdoch and his mad propaganda media empire.
Without question, Rupert Murdoch is the single greatest threat to western democracy. The man must be stopped and his global propaganda network dismantled and sold off to national, regional, and local media concerns. Once Mister Murdoch is taken out, national and international laws must be passed to prevent worldwide media monopolies from ever again forming.
