  4. CREATING MORE DEAD HEADS is where the Media is headed!

    Nowhere in history can be found a time like this. Every trick of the marketing trade is being used daily to take sharp and bright minds of the young by most if not all of the main-steam media into a deep sea of mindless BS as the abyss.

    Some cry out for those involved to use their conscience to run from such media jobs. However let me suggest those many in the media have bought into the fact that their jobs and money will keep them separated from the larger class that they have conspired to keep down.

    Some may find that the use of the conscience should not be a part of the discussion. However the rightful use of conscience is the base of all social organizations institutions in city state and national building and extensions there of.

    So please think that the rightful use of conscience is the moral rule that must stand without being attacked.
