The other evening I happened to be awakened by a late night npr rerun to the effect that our information sources are less able to afford reporters who do in depth studies of the moneyed crooks who are controlling our national information sources in their own interest and who are being replaced by money-making opinion types who attack each other to generate listeners (readers) which generates big bucks for their employers.

As a retired social/political/legal/philosopher I am all too aware that democracies cannot function on the basis of big money oriented misinformation. That was the story of Hitler, Mussolini, and Stalin who used the same tactics to deceive and what is going on in too many nations around the world where greedies are emulating these horrors. Help!

“A war is just if there is no alternative, and the resort to arms is legitimate if they represent your last hope.” (Livy cited by Machiavelli)
