In Russia, China and the USA — Permutations of Orwell's Nightmare Vision

NOTE: This post is a follow-up to World
Press Freedom Day 5-3-07: In Russia and Philippines, Journalists Risk Their
Lives; In USA, They Won't Even Risk Their Jobs

 

The truth will set you free.

In the UK, it
can certainly free you of your paycheque.

In China or Russia,
it could free you of your life or your liberty.

How far behind China
and Russia is
the UK?

Not far.

How long will it be until press freedom in the UK
is wholly compromised?

Unless the trend is reversed, not long.

As I rattle off the burgeoning litany of Blair-Brown outrages, my friends and
colleagues throughout the world shake their heads in disbelief: the theft of votes
in the northeast in the 2005 election, the cover-up of 7/7 indifference, and
lack of enquiry, the foolish military adventure in Iraq, the contempt for the
Geneva Accords, the corporatist disinformation campaign on global warming, the
theft of guaranteed voting in the 2007 Scottish election, and the wilful
neglect of our national institutions, human rights, freedoms and privacy.

How could it happen in the UK?

Why aren’t angry mobs milling around Downing St
and the Houses of Parliament?

How can these people, as discredited and unpopular as they are, continue to
avoid accountability and hold on to power?

The answer is agonizingly simple.

The UK
mainstream news media is owned by men (yes, men) who are wholly complicit and
wholly invested in the corporatist agenda.

 

Sound familiar?, now
read the original
US post….it rings so very true here.

And if anyone believes that it will just end because Brown gets into No.10, think again.. There's worse to come.
