Michael Moore had epiphany while on the road to Rome.
The filmmaker lambasted corporate media for placing more emphasis on frivolous entertainment than hard-hitting objective news.
“If you allow rich corporations to buy up and control most of the media, and then put things on the media that are intended to appeal to the stupidity that’s in all of us, you will have a dumb-downed nation,” he said.
Notice the use of the transitive verb “allow” in the above statement. If Moore sat atop the pinnacle of the state, he would decide what corporations are allowed to do business, and those not. Everything else would be run by a bloated, misfiring, inept, and corrupt state.
And who are these dumbed-down Americans, according to Moore? Those who voted for Trump and those who did not vote at all.
If we follow Moore’s partisan-tilted logic, white males are responsible for installing Trump in the White House. “These are the last days of the dying dinosaur, the old white man who has been making the decisions since the beginning of our time,” he said.
