A funny thing happened on the way to dystopia.
As Western mainstream media fall into the hands of lying billionaires, Zionists, and intelligence agencies (three categories with significant overlap) – and as neoconservatives script big media's ignoble lies – a surging internet-based alternative media has arisen to challenge the elite's false narratives. Thanks to alt-media, fewer and fewer people are buying the simplistic feel-good myths peddled by the mainstream.
While most old people still cling to the corporate media worldview, the young are skewing ever-harder toward alternative perspectives. In Thursday's Scottish independence referendum, for example, the London Daily Mirror reported that 71% of 16-17 year olds voted "yes" while those over 65 voted "no" by a 73%-27% margin.
Why does the vast majority of Scottish young people favor independence, while an equally crushing majority of old people opposes it?
Short answer: Old people still believe BBC propaganda, while the young do not.
During the run-up to the referendum, huge crowds of young people gathered to protest the BBC's biased coverage of the campaign. John Robertson, Professor of Media Studies at the University of the West of Scotland, said: "My research indicates that our public broadcaster, funded as much by Yes as by No voters, has betrayed its charter on impartiality."
Older Scots grew up inside the bubble of the mainstream media monopoly. Most do not understand how the BBC and other mainstream outlets used subliminal cues as well as blatant bias to push for a "no" vote; nor do they realize how utterly corrupt their government and media have become.
