I disagree that the "Stalinist" approach is doomed to failure in the long run. It seemed to work very well for the Roman Empire in maintaining order for a long, long time. The British, too, despite their relative kindness in Malaysia, successfully used it in the Second Boer War. If you're willing to "make a wasteland and call it peace", to utterly destroy any population that resists being assimilated and then replace them with your own people, to commit genocide, then you certainly can hold territory by sheer force for a long, long time.

Excellent thinking Sonny - the companies that incorporate that kind of synergy into their old and new media will definitely be the ones who get the most for their money! Thanks for weighing in!

Hello friend, I am very much happy to see your blog. But the problem is I can't understand the language. Thanks for posting. All the best.

I agree, we don't want to let the poor and uninfluential do censorship. We want to let people say bad things about NAMBLA, or the Bloods or Crips, or al Qaeda, or the Myanmar government etc, and if they don't like it then too bad, there's nothing they can do about it. But shouldn't the bulk of our free speech effort go to suppression by the powerful? Suppression by B'nai Brith, by the GOP, by large corporations and industry groups....Nike Dunk Low

No, wait. they are powerful. They have the right to urge people not to buy particular newspapers, they have the right to suggest legislation, they have the right to organise boycots etc. Air Retro Jordan Just as muslims do, except that muslims have very little power that way just yet since there are only a few million muslim immigrants and they're relatively poor.

I think this is a great post. One thing that I find the most helpful is number five. Sometimes when I write, I just let the flow of the words and information come out so much that I loose the purpose. It’s only after editing when I realize what I’ve done.
