Decided NO to autostarting media on blog. 4-0 even with the one that isn't anythin' to do with the subject of the query, and falsifying data, but not to a point that it was still uninimity...(aka unanimously)...

We have allowed science to be used for “bad,” Asimov traced this first “bad” use back to 1915, with the introduction of chemical poisoning warfare. However, it could be an even worse misuse of science to continue to allow it to be “not used” to debunk sour and segregating conspiracies derived from collective social knowledge, or at least the collective social knowledge that sours and segregates, and subjugates, unjustly, based on such factors as race, gender, religion and political process.
Purposeful introduction to inspiration. The knowledge of writers as a sub-group, facing categorization-al tendency. A group often attributed with attributes of similarity. Writer’s block; alcoholism; depression. Etc.
Many parallels into the world of media and the “dumbing down” of the American general public can be drawn that might relate Asimov to the main character of Good night, and Good Luck. Edward R. Murrow surely felt and voiced similar concerns in his own work. It was a time period both men shared. They shared the view that humanity closed its collective eye to the destructive force of McCarthy-ist patriotism. They were aware of the general state of propagandized education and entertainment which was a literal part of the era. The saw truth between the lines of misinformation, and misinformation for what it was.
