Media's Role During Demoralization
Either Yuri knew of what he spoke or the likes of CNN, MSNBC, and (to a lesser extent, at least, so far) Fox News came across his lectures and decided to prove him right as there is no doubt the American “mainstream” media has embraced its role in subverting America.
It’s as if Yuri knows so many of the idiots in today’s media.
Yuri’s description of the media’s role in demoralization is so prescient that it’s been transcribed below:
The natural bodies of administration which are traditionally either elected by people at large or appointed by elected leaders of society are being actively substituted by artificial bodies. The bodies of people, groups of people who nobody elected—NEVER!—as a matter of fact, most of the people don’t like them at all. And yet, they exist.
One such group is media. Who elected them?
How come they have so much power? Almost monopolistic power on your mind. They can rape your mind! But who elected them?
How come they are—they have the nerve to decide what is good and what is bad for the elected by you [points to audience] president and his administration. Who the hell are they?
Spiro Agnew, who was hated by the liberal left, called them a bunch of enfeebled snobs. And that’s exactly what they are. They think they know—they don’t.
The level of mediocri[t]y in the big establishment like New York Times, Los Angeles Times, major television network. You don’t have to be excellent journalist. You have to be exactly a mediocre journalist. That’s easier to survive. There’s no competition any more. You have your good, nice income $100,000 a year. That’s it. Whether you’re better or worse doesn’t really matter any more. As long as you’re smiling to the camera and do your job. That’s it. No more—no more competition.
Power structure slowly is eroded by the bodies and groups of people who do not have neither qualification nor the will of people to keep them in power. And, yet, they do have power.
