Sultan Knish: The Post-American Liberal Culture

Sultan Knish looks at thoughtful, caring, intelligent citizens of the world.

Understand, however, that despite the recent blows to NPR and their subscribers' worldviews, a simple fact remains:

Public radio (in both its domestic American and international editions) delivers the collectivists' points of view and messages to a massive global audience.

Do the forces of individual freedom do the same, with anywhere near the same effectiveness and audience?

If not, why not?

And can that situation be changed?

NPR stands for "No People Required", the actual audience is too small to show up on Nielsen Ratings.

That said, their audience is the leftist professional, the perpetual progressive/fascist for whom it's always 1932. That's the core audience in America.

Worse, is the Rightist progressive talk radio which includes Rush Limbaugh, Neal Boortz, Mike Gallagher, Michael Weiner (Savage), and others that are hard core Neocons supporting endless warfare abroad. They're the idiots that continue to attemmpt to bait the progressive/fascist in the White House to "do something to Libya, Bahrain, Egypt, or one of the other countries experiencing revolts within their borders.

Those two do actually have a large audience, the latter dwarf's "No People Required" by a huge percentage, and that makes no difference in the final outcome, slavery for most of us.

I listen to, and subscribe to my local npr station. the reasons are simple: I want some news when i get tired of the tracks on my mp3 player, i like the Tappet Brothers, and i dont want to listen to another goddam commercial advertisement for mortgage brokers, rain gutters or garage doors.

Keeping in mind that every media outlet has agenda (namely: to pick my pocket), i am confident that i can recognize the bullshit and formulate my own opinions about the things i hear. Ultimately, isn't that the core of personal freedom and individual responsibility for oneself?

Am fine with NPR's existence as a broadcast entity.

Oppose financial subsidy from govt to anyone, including them.

Saddened by failure of freedom forces to posit an equally-effective channel of distribution.

clear enough.

on a second read, i realize my comment was colored by an emotional reaction to the constant anti-intellectualist shouting usually aimed at public broadcast- which you are not taking part in here, so please forgive my redirection.

Keeping on topic, and in response to your assertion that those who are not counted among the liberal elite as described by Knish are not represented by a similar outlet to NPR:

I agree that NPR and its dominant culture seems to have a certain smugness of superiority about it which nauseates a free-thinking man, and repulses him. I also cannot deny the absurdity of handing tax dollars to a media corporation. When i give 13 dollars a month to my local, it is because i choose to freely- and that is the way it should be. What needs to happen (Somewhat counter-intuitively) is for Mr. FreeThinker to support public broadcast in levels sufficient to end the circlejerk of "thoughtful, caring, intelligent citizens", and inject an honest picture of reality into the message.

somebody needs to tell Joe Sixpack that he has been sold out. NPR is too busy navelgazing to do so, and Rush is too busy cashing advertisers checks.

I'd go one better.

Keep current NPR programming (if members will support it). Call it "NPR Red".

Start "NPR White" as subscriber-based freedom radio, using existing blogradio feeds as programming on new digital HD channels.

They can't fight or even take care of themselves but they got a death grip on the lower levers of power in America. Which means they're the bankers and CFR's strawbosses that make the media we consume, write the laws we've been culturally hardwired to obey, and train the next generation to be like them. They're united and seek to keep us dumbed down and divided on race/cultural lines.

But how many radio and tv stations are there? Do each and every last one of them have a guard detail? How hard would it be to shut them down.

"National public" is too close to "national socialist" for me. I wouldn't want the name to glorify either nationalism or collectivism. How about "WRSA radio" instead? Hmm...

wikipedia: WRSA-FM (96.9 FM, "Lite 96.9") is an adult contemporary music-formatted radio station serving the Huntsville, Alabama, area.

Alabama? Anyone you know live in Alabama?
