“The dumbing down of America is an overt strategy for subverting democracy. You create a society where people look to the corporate media to tell them what things mean because they’re incapable, or believe they’re incapable, of thinking things through for themselves. If you oppress an educated and informed citizenry you get revolution. But if you oppress an uneducated, insecure and uninformed citizenry you get Eminem. And if you’re smart, you can even make a profit from him.”
