Have liberals fallen under a corporate spell since the 1980's; and don't even know it? Yes. Yes they have. UberLIBERAL author, Ben Bagdikian?

...made unshakably clear how American thinking became ever-more controlled by fewer and fewer corporations from 1983 to his death in 2016.

     His extreme liberalism horrified him of "the increasing concentration of the media in the US in the hands of corporate owners, which, he argued, threatened freedom of expression and independent journalism". At the (1983) time, some 50 corporations controlled what most people in the United States read and watched.

     Bagdikian argued that "media power is political power and "that the number of corporations controlling most of the media decreased to five."

>> And burn this fact into your memory.... He pointed out,...

     "THIS GIVES EACH OF THE 5 MORE COMMUNICATIONS POWER THAN WAS EXERCISED BY ANY DESPOT OR DICTATORSHIP IN [GLOBAL] HISTORY."

     Liberals have defended free speech more vigilant combative than any other ideology. Now they FIGHT it by defending huge corporations. 

     IF that isn't a sign of cult-like brainwashing, what is?

Update:

Mark IX: Yes, you don't know it until you grow a spine and READ what this liberal author wrote. If you don't, why not? You sound like a paid troll. Are you with enemies "foreign or domestic"?

    Better than believing in shape shifting Reptilians ordering the illuminati to put mind control chips in the vaccine.
