The Deep State and The Deep Media, by Monty Pelerin. The bureaucratic state is so extensive and pervasive, that if it decides it doesn’t like your company it can make life very difficult and expensive — awarding or denying government contacts, withholding discretionary licenses or permissions (especially environmental), tax auditing, selective enforcement of rules normally ignored (we all break several laws per day), and so on.
America’s press, while not owned by the State, is under similar restrictions as the press in more totalitarian states. These restrictions are not officially codified in law but are understood by the media. They result from the fact that the US government has the power to bankrupt any person or corporation it chooses to target.
The unlimited resources of the Deep State make it impossible for individuals or corporations to defend themselves. …
There are too many laws that none of us don’t violate several of them, unknowingly, every day. …
This type of society is not socialism in the normal sense. Actually, it is more like fascism where private ownership is allowed but behavior is so subject to government rules and regulations that it is government that actually drives behavior.
In the US, six corporations own over 90% of the media. Five are PC.
