The powerful of this modern world are very much aware that
control of the media is mandantory in order to negate the process
of a democracy. The conservatives control the news media and
therefore, every thought and action of the majority of the population.
How could anyone making less than $40K a year vote for a party
that is ripping their lives apart if they weren't being brain-
washed into believing that they were being properly served?
I contend that control of the media is the "absolute" power.
