The Monopolistic Control Over Ideas Must Stop

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Suppressing constitutionally protected free speech, conservative or liberal, is akin to unfairly killing off competition. We’ve seen this before, not with speech but with growing corporate measures to suppress post-Civil War industrial competition. JP Morgan, Andrew Carnegie, and the Rockefeller’s come to mind, but there were others too, who under the laws of those times, set about stifling competition and setting market values. The major monopolies then were railroads, coal mining, and steel production. If a company could mine it, transport it and then turn it into a sellable product thus excluding competition, well, that’s a monopoly. 

Today, that tawdry business lies solely in the realm of political ideas, including China’s, about whose ideas can be heard and whose ideas can’t be heard. This completely ignores the 1st Amendment of our Constitution on the grounds the electronic media monopolies are private businesses and the Constitution only prohibits the government from interfering with free speech rights. If that’s the case, then why is the Democrat Party so keenly involved by refusing to take remedial action except to encourage the soundbite monopolies to stifle all political ideas except their own, claiming anything, not theirs are lies that the public should be protected from?

Creating that monopolistic control over ideas started decades ago with schools of journalism that indoctrinated rather than educate the scores of already brainwashed young liberals wanting to join the media business.

It is a business plan for disaster and here we are again, saddled with unfair competition between ideas, not steel production, coal mining, or railroad haulage but with data bits, things we can’t even see but are denied to us by the grand wizards of the electronic means for the distribution of ideas.

Who gave Bill Gates the right to censor how we transmit our thoughts and ideas. Who gave Mark Zuckerberg the authority to set limits on our thought processes on Facebook? And Twitter, the most egregious of all, has the gall to cancel the account of the President of the United States, Donald Trump. Because electronic data bits are intangibles, are they still not subject to the controls of fairness when used for nefarious purposes? Of course, they are!

Students of American history once knew that the post-Civil War era was followed by rapid commercial growth without controls. The scenario was inevitably accompanied by corruption, the creation of “Oligarchs” or as they were called in America’s early history, “Robber Barons” like JP Morgan, Carnegie, and Rockefeller being among the most egregious. They created monopolies by railroads acquiring the products that only their RRs could haul, ie: from mines to production to market. These corrupt schemes were disguised as “Trusts” which the Federal Govt. lackadaisical attempted to address with the Sherman Anti-Trust Act of 1890.

Teddy Roosevelt, immediately when he became President, took on the problem by revitalizing the Sherman Anti-Trust Act and making it work. He effectively destroyed the monopolies of (private) big business run by the self-made tycoons of industry because as monopolies they defied fair trade concepts to the competition of ideas. Because we trade in ideas⏤the failed concepts of Marxism must be protected from the ridicule they so richly deserve.

But, to Democrats, those ideas of competition do not apply by disguising Twitter, Facebook, etc, as the free press, protected by the 4th amendment. Nonsense! When Trump returns he’ll drive a stake in the heart of that beast.

The rotten media collaborates with evil and does it by stifling the means of distribution to protect its evil from the information that would save the American dream for the uninformed or misinformed students of government schools that will be our future leaders someday. We can’t have that anymore.

We must face our challenges and it’s time to act!

Remember, freedom is the goal; the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ’em!

George McClellan

George G. McClellan, a California native, was a Regular Army veteran and served a post-war Korea tour. His post-army professional career covered 43 years in law enforcement, including the California Highway Patrol and the US Naval Investigative Service (NCIS). With the latter, he became a world traveler visiting and working in many countries from the Philippine Islands to the United Kingdom, Asia, the Middle-East, Bosnia, Europe, Russia, and India. He retired from the NIS at Naval Air Station, Atlanta, Ga., and has remained in the north Georgia area since 1990 as a co-owner of a Security Consulting company. He earned a Certified Protectional Professional (CPP) certification from the American Society for Industrial Security and a Fraud Examiner Certification (CFE).

He has published a historical biography on a namesake, a John Jacob Astor Fur Company member who explored a route west and back, after Lewis and Clark. Early American history, Celtic influence on America, and conservative politics remain his greatest interests. He is also a bagpiper since 1975. He and his wife, since 1965, now resides in Gilmer County, Ga.

The Reason the Patriot Act No Longer Works

The Reason the Patriot Act No Longer Works

We must realize the power of arrest now basically lies in Marxist hands, and they will use it. Already they have perverted the definition of who is and who is not a “terrorist.” It’s no longer the foreign Islamic Jihadists who killed over 3000 Americans in a single day, who are the terrorist!” To suggest is to be labeled Islamaphobic, but Oath Keepers, former American soldiers, and policemen still willing to keep the oaths they took to Protect and Defend the…

To Secede, or Not To Secede, That is the Question for Oregon and Idaho

To Secede, or Not To Secede, That is the Question for Oregon and Idaho

The Oregon vote shows both the desire of the people to change and their willingness to fight for their land. Is that enough? As of the writing, I don’t know how the legislature of Oregon will respond to this vote. Are the legislators willing to trap people in an unhappy situation to further their political goals? We’ve seen that before in world history, and it doesn’t end well.

John Kerry is a Consequential Internal Security Threat to America

John Kerry is a Consequential Internal Security Threat to America

John Kerry co-chaired the 2020 presidential campaign Biden-Sanders unity climate change task force with the socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., which provided the framework for a “Green New Deal,” since repackaged as the Democrat “infrastructure” plan. Kerry has a habit of being in the center of many of the worst policies that pose major security risks for America…

Biden, G7 & the China Conundrum

Biden, G7 & the China Conundrum

The only way to confront the Chinese colossus is by combining the populations, economic and military powers of the USA, Europe, Russia, and India. Excluding Biden’s mental lapses and gaffes, the G7 leaders had a good time amongst themselves at enormous taxpayers’ expenses and returned home, not only empty-handed but empty-minded for completely ignoring all the following items…

5 Tools That Will Help You Tame Anxiety

Emotions are actually intelligent indicators meant to get your attention and provide energy and information. Anxiety as an emotional symptom is a sign you are not present. Ultimately, you can retrain your mind with consistent self-care tools and by prioritizing yourself to take the time to reset when your emotions are getting overly amped up…

COVID-19 Vaccines Not Safe for Human Use on Either Side of the Atlantic

COVID-19 Vaccines Not Safe for Human Use on Either Side of the Atlantic

Since the majority of the deaths occur within a few days of the vaccine administration, if the vaccine did not directly “cause” the death, it was undoubtedly in the causal pathway of these temporally related fatalities. Common narratives include vaccine-induced fatal heart attacks, strokes, blood clots, and blood disorders. 5,888 Americans have died and confirmed by the CDC, and possibly tens of thousands not reported or still backlogged at the CDC…

Sadly, Biden Was the Laugh of the G7 Party

Sadly, Biden Was the Laugh of the G7 Party

The President’s behavior throughout the G7 meeting and the meeting with Putin that followed did nothing to alleviate the suspicions that many Americans have that the President’s cognitive ability is fading rapidly. This, of course, leads to another question: Is Joe Biden really able to carry out his duties as President of the United States and leader of the free world?

#BidenBlunders Are Top Greatest US Threats – Not White Supremacists or Global Warming

How does terminating American petroleum and pipelines — while at the same time placating Putin’s — benefit all those drowning Arctic polar bears Al Gore warned us about? I’m betting that lots of recently unemployed coal miners and oil patch roughnecks are among a great many who are questioning these same contradictions regarding America’s truly urgent problems…

Coincidence or Conspiracy to Take Down a Nation

Coincidence or Conspiracy to Take Down a Nation

Now with a clearer vision of the past year and a half, could this nightmare we’ve been living have all been simply happenstance? Or is there something more sinister behind it? When we consider some parallels between the CCP-virus, the now-obvious hanky-panky that surrounded our Nov. 3rd elections, and the false flags unfolding around the January 6th Capitol event, we could almost have a conspiracy!
