The corruption of media and politicians
Lifes much harder when you live outside of a corrupt system, saying no I will not confine and thus stand for what I believe is right. Watching a society that is brainwashed by the media, it’s hard when very few people around you can even grasp what is going on and you just have to watch the dictatorship take its control over people. What can you do? Wait for time to pass by, in the hope that people will one day (sooner rather than later) wake up. It is a damn site scary when politicians are even scared of the media and will fall head over heels to be perceived well in the public eye.
Take the current case in the UK with Rebekah Brooks and the current PM David Cameron for example. Rebekah and the biggest news corporation in the world where found guilty of being part of a phone hacking scandal where they had illegally hacked phone calls to maintain information to put in their newspapers. David Cameron chose to overlook this crime as the newspaper is currently in favour of his party, giving it good publicity, so therefore he chose to overlook by texting her on a weekly basis telling her not too worry, obviously insinuating he would do all he could to ensure her crimes where overlooked in order to maintain his relationship with what is probably the most powerful woman in media. She also had strong relationships with the previous three primeministers of the UK.
So where does this end? If the people at the top of society are showing no signs of morale behaviour and acting purely in self interest and greed, how can they dictate how the rest of us act? There has been so much corruption in politics and the media in recent years, but why is Rebekah Brookes so important? Well she is regarded so highly because of her power, but its how she uses it to develop relationships that is dangerous. She is at the very top of our media, she controls what she wants and doesn’t want us to see and read in our newspapers, and 80% of us believe it. Even when newspapers have a reputation for lying to us, we still go out and purchase them. The lower classes are slated left right and centre in these newspapers, from the london riots in 2011 to other circumstances, rather than looking at the reasons for their behaviour, which is an underlying problem in society which is down to how we are treated by the people in power, they instead choose to exploit us, all based on one thing, money.
They don’t want benefits or a welfare state at all, these people will never need access to these things and do not rely on help of others, they would rather ignore us completely with their dog eat dog nature and let us fend for ourselves even if we are not in a position to do so, all because they do not want to be taxed. So my point is that people at every level from the elites, the politicians to the people in the media, they are all abusing their power, not just with a lack of understanding of the lower classes, but a selfish and greed driven strategy.
Many people in our society do not know that the corruption of the media is at the cause of so many problems in our society, racism, sexism, religious segregation, they are caused by a number of components in which the media use to turn the lower classes against eachother, afterall have you ever noticed you never see a religious politician, a black politician and only on a rare occasion do you see a female one. It is all used to prevent the lower classes from having the same mindset and becoming all too powerful and revealing the truth behind their corruption.
