Albert Einstein described our present world situation way back during the First World War: "How is it at all possible that this culture-loving era could be so monstrously amoral? " All our lauded technological progress -- our very civilization - is like the axe in the hand of the pathological criminal." - Albert Einstein, Letter to Heinrich Zangger (1917)
In 1950, Einstein explained why our civilization continues to be "like an axe in the had of the pathological criminal,": "Under
existing conditions, private capitalists inevitably control, directly
or indirectly, the main sources of information (press, radio,
education). It is thus extremely difficult, and indeed in most cases
quite impossible, for the individual citizen to come to objective
conclusions and to make intelligent use of his political rights." - Albert Einstein, Essays in Humanism
Einstein was obviously referring to the criminal media cartel controlling more than 98% of all sources of information and entertainment, and continually inculcating acceptance, cooperation, even praise for a continuing the genocidal and illegal use of the US Armed Forces, CIA and sanctions.
Mysteriously, even our best independent journalists, top intellectuals and historians, are of no help, as they to a man, stick to reporting and chronicling events of massive human horror as if they were simply Realpolitik, as unchallengeable as the weather, never including the whole truth that they are obvious prosecutable genocidal crimes against humanity. Inversely, in the case of domestic homicide on a city street anywhere, the first issue to clarify whether what happened was a crime or not. Amazingly, in the little independent and alternate world coverage journalism we have, the word 'crime' is never employed. Anti-imperialist journalists report mass murderous world events as terrible or mistaken foreign policy, rarely, if ever, never citing, to this archival research peoples historian's knowledge, a need for reparations, indemnity, or compensation for surviving victims.
Even RTTV (Russian Television, broadcasting in Russian, English, Spanish and Arabic) the most popular source of anti-Western imperialism news and information, claiming "more than 3 billion views across its channels and 3.5 million subscribers," daily presents horrific upon horrific news as entertaining news and information. Among the "Shows" RT presents on RT in English by RT's own descriptions are: ' The News Thing' "a satirical show;" 'Redacted Tonight' "perhaps only comedy can truly bring truth to the people;" 'Watching the Hawks' "media, politics and pop culture;" 'The Big Picture' "hottest political show;" ' CrossTalk' "hot-topic discussions on politics and trends;" (wherein obvious lies are represented by US officials are debated); 'Politiking' "with Larry King;" Kirby's War of Words' "RT's most opinionated personality."
