You are correct the media is another estate. The people's media is what matters, the peoples media is the only way for 4th Generation political movements to reach a critical tipping point, to where the institutionalized press carries the banner in the sake of self preservation.

The movement needs a clear principle to get coverage. People think it is a bunch of degenerate kids. It is not, and this needs to be made clear. We need to come up with a principle and send it to the news organizations.

Thanks, Marc! Great article. I'm sure that you're familiar with Noam Chomsky's famous line that "propaganda is to a democracy what the bludgeon is to a totalitarian state."
