White Man’s Media: The Washington consensus and legacy media frames and conditions our thinking and actions. An updated repost – Pearls and Irritations

White mans media

Does America want to end this War?

Just as the British East India Company effectively ran Britain and its empire, so the US military and business complex, along with its elite supporters particularly in the media supports Western hegemony. No US president, and certainly no Australian prime minister or Leader of the Opposition is prepared to challenge the US Imperium.

A person from Mars who reads and listens to Australian media would conclude that we are an island parked off New York or London. The ABC is no exception. It has a Planet America program as if we are a state of the US!

Western media including our own shows no interest in peace in Ukraine. Most political colonies have come to an end. But a colonial mind set continues in the media. That media mind set in turn promotes a ‘colonisation of the mind’. It accepts the Washington consensus.
