"Many people, especially ignorant people, want to punish you for speaking the truth, for being correct.
Never apologize for being correct, or for being years ahead of your time.
If you're right and you know it, speak your mind.
Even if you are a minority of one, the truth is still the truth."

"We are facing in the U.S. today a Total State, where opposing views are de-platformed and disappeared, where truth-tellers are jailed and tortured to serve as a warning to others."

"The revolving door between tech companies and intelligence agencies, think tanks, defense contractors and security companies is constantly revolving, especially at the higher echelons of important departments, like cybersecurity. Notably, many of these companies cater along partisan lines depending on the political proclivities of their owners, in a bid to tip the scales toward their point of view.
They have embraced this role as an information portal, offering special "news" sections on their platforms. They are rolling out new apps to judge the trustworthiness of news sources. Facebook and Google, in particular, have also become two of the largest funders of journalism around the world, helping to further entrench State Department-approved models of truth in key hotspots of geopolitical interest."

"Some media have outsourced their entire foreign editorial office to a global news agency. Moreover, it is well known that many news portals on the internet mostly publish agency reports.
In the end, this dependency on the global agencies creates a striking similarity in international reporting: from Vienna to Washington, our media often report the same topics, using many of the same phrases - a phenomenon that would otherwise rather be associated with controlled media in authoritarian states."

"The U.S. government, in an ugly alliance with those that profit the most from war, has its tentacles in every part of the media - imposters, with ties to the U.S. State Department, sit in newsrooms all over the world. Editors, with no apparent connections to the member's club, have done nothing to resist. Together, they filter out what can or cannot be reported. Inconvenient stories are completely blocked."

"Just six massive and global corporations-Comcast, Viacom, Time Warner, CBS, the News Corporation and Disney-together control more than 90 percent of the nation's television stations, radio stations, movies, newspapers and magazines. Corporate ownership combines with other deeply entrenched factors to guarantee the not-so-mainstream media's dutiful service to the nation's unelected and interrelated dictatorships of money, class and empire: the controlling power of corporate advertisers (the mass media's main market, not the public); the disproportionate purchasing power of the affluent (the main target of advertisers); the elitist socialization, indoctrination and selection of journalists, and the dependence of media on government for information, access and monopoly power."

"The New York Times, Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal are quasi-governmental organs, predictably predictable and predictably dishonest. The truth is not in them."
