Terminology and Phrases

The Political Spectrum

Political Spectrum is a term utilized to describe the ideological differences between; Leftists, Progressives, Liberals, Moderates/Centrists, Conservatives, Libertarians, and Far Right. The ideas and ideologies of each part of The Political Spectrum are different but sometimes overlapping. A believer of one part of The Political Spectrum may have individual ideas of another part of The Political Spectrum that displaces them from the mainstream of categorical thinking of the part of the spectrum they are normally associated with.

Howsoever a person’s particular ideas may fall into one or more categories of The Political Spectrum, we can generalize about the spectrum by utilizing a broad brush. This generalization is their view of the significance of the individual versus society and the role and intercession of government in society. The further left on The Political Spectrum that you are, the more likely you believe in group identity and governmental intervention in the affairs of society. Conversely, the further on the right of The Political Spectrum, it is more likely that you believe in individual autonomy and less government intervention in the affairs of society. This distinction influences your attitude towards the meaning and interpretations of the role of government, as I have discussed in my Articles:

Because of these ideological differences, each of the persons in a category often talks past persons in another category, as each category has different meanings or interpretations of what the other is saying or doing. It is also true that often ideas are pigeonholed into a category of The Political Spectrum. This pigeonholing is often inaccurate and often done for the purposes of besmirching an opponent. It is, therefore, important to remember that The Political Spectrum is about ideology, not ideas. Ideas should be evaluated based on the content of the idea, not where they may be placed on The Political Spectrum.

Activism and Activists

"Activism" consists of efforts to promote, impede, direct, or intervene in social, political, economic, or environmental reform with the desire to make changes in society toward a perceived greater good. Forms of activism range from writing letters to newspapers, mandated zoning in a community, petitioning elected officials, running or contributing to a political campaign, adding or changing laws and regulations, preferential patronage or boycott of businesses, and demonstrative forms of activism like rallies, street marches, strikes, sit-ins, or hunger strikes.

Most Activist Groups are non-violent and well-meaning, but as with all such groups, their solutions can be suspect or faulty. Activists often have a Cognitive Bias in favor of their objective, and they can also have major Logical Fallacies within their arguments, which makes their solutions suspect. Their solutions are also prone to the negative effects of "The Law of Unintended Consequences". Some activists become so convinced of the uprightness of their cause that they engage in confrontations, intimidations, incitements, assaults, violence, or property destruction in support of their cause, which is contrary to the norms of "A Civil Society". When I utilize the term Activists or Activism in my Articles or Chirps, I am generally referring to demonstrative forms of activists or activism and their uncivil behavior.

Adjective Justice

“You shall do no injustice in court. You shall not be partial to the poor or defer to the great, but in righteousness shall you judge your neighbor.”
 - Leviticus 19:15 ESV

Equality under the Law has been recognized since Biblical time as necessary to achieve Justice. And without justice, there can be no Freedom or Liberty. All must be treated as equals under the law. This means that within the jurisdiction of the law, all must be treated equally. It does not mean that each jurisdiction must apply the same laws as another jurisdiction (i.e., a traffic violation within a jurisdiction must be applied equally within the jurisdiction, but another jurisdiction traffic law cannot be applied to any other jurisdiction).

When you place an adjective in front of the word “Justice” you no longer have true Justice- you have favoritism (i.e., “Adjective Justice”). Adjectives such as social justice, environmental justice, workers justice, gender justice, tax-payer Justice, and voter justice, to name a few, require one party to be favored over another. Favoritism destroys the concept of “Equal Justice Under Law” and erodes Liberty and Freedom to the point where it is a meaningless concept. Within the judicial process, all must be treated as equals.

Big Tech

Big Tech is a term that refers to the most dominant and largest technology companies in their respective sectors. Big Tech, also known as the Tech Giants, Big Four, or Big Five, is a name given to the present four or five largest, most dominant, and most prestigious companies in the information technology industry of the United States. The Big Four consists of Alphabet (Google), Amazon, Apple, and Meta (Facebook)—with Microsoft completing the Big Five.

Their products and services are used globally and have become heavily relied upon by businesses and individuals alike, bringing up privacy, safety, and Antitrust concerns about their influence and operations. There is also a great concern about their influence on society when they engage in determining who and who will not be permitted to utilize their services. Under the banner of ‘community standards’, ‘disinformation and misinformation, and the ‘hate speech’ algorithms that they utilize to restrict access to their services, they engage in censorship of free speech, often to the detriment of society.

Cancel Culture

"Cancel Culture" are those reprehensible actions taken by some people, persons, or entities to hurt a person, harm their families, and ruin the finances of those that they disagree with. Practiced almost exclusively by Progressives/Leftist against those that would disagree or oppose them, these actions vary between impugning the honor and reputation of someone, the effectuation of loathing of a person, the actuating of fear of harm amongst those so targeted, and in some cases the actual physical harm or the destruction of property of their target(s). Cancel Culture also had the effect of intimidating Americans into not exercising their Free Speech rights for fear of being targeted by the Cancel Culture. These are detestable actions done by despicable persons. You have every Free Speech right to admonish a person, but you have no right to destroy a person. These actions are also contrary to our “Freedoms, Liberties, Equalities, and Justice for All”, and demonstrate the vacuity of the morals and ethics of those that practice Cancel Culture.

Conservatives

Conservatism is an aesthetic, cultural, social, and political philosophy, which seeks to promote and to preserve traditional social institutions, practices and values. The central tenets of conservatism may vary in relation to the status quo of the culture and civilization in which it appears. In Western culture, conservatives seek to preserve a range of institutions such as organized religion, constitutional government, and property rights. Conservatives tend to favor institutions and practices that guarantee stability and evolved gradually.

Constitutional Conservatives

"Constitutional Conservatism” is a form of conservatism bound within limits provided within the United States Constitution, defending the structures of constitutionalism and preserving the principles of the United States Constitution. Chief among those Constitutional principles are Limited and Enumerated government established for the protection of our Natural Rights. This form of conservatism coalesced in the Republican Party in the early 20th century in opposition to progressivism within the Democrat party. Constitutional conservatism has also been associated with Originalism. In the context of United States law, judicial originalism is a concept regarding the interpretation of the Constitution that asserts that all statements in the Constitution must be interpreted based on the original understanding “at the time it was adopted”. This concept views the Constitution as stable from the time of enactment and that the meaning of its contents can be changed only by the steps set out in Article Five of the Constitution.

Democrat and Republican Voters

Many people vote for their party regardless of the candidates’ policies and positions or what the party stands for. Often, as a result, they vote for policies and positions that are not in their best interests nor the best interests of America. When a person votes this way, they are behaving as a lemming does when it marches over a cliff as part of the crowd.

It is an unfortunate fact that the Democrat Party has more lemmings than the Republican Party. The Democrat Party also has a different sort of lemming – an unthoughtful lemming. The Republican Party has more of a thoughtful type of lemming. The difference between these two types of lemmings is that the unthoughtful lemming votes without concern to the candidates or parties’ policy and positions in both the primary and general election, while the thoughtful lemming votes in the primary for a candidate that they agree with their policies and position but then votes for the party candidate in the general election.

The unthoughtful lemmings are often driven by an unreasonable fear of the opposition by the negative sloganeering and excessive rhetoric of fear of the opposition promulgated by Democrat Party Leaders. The thoughtful lemming is often driven by the concern that the opposition policies and positions are wrong for America and do not represent our American Ideals and Ideas, and they rarely pay attention to the rhetoric of the Republican Party Leaders.

Democrat Party Leaders

"Democrat Party Leaders" are those elected Democrats at all levels of government that establish the political goals and policy agendas of the Democrat Party. These goals and agendas are often formulated and instituted in a top-down hierarchical manner, with little input from the base of the Democrat Party. Once formulated, very little dissent or deviation is tolerated concerning these goals and agendas. It is expected that the non-leaders of the Democrat Party will support and vote en bloc for legislation that implements these goals and agendas. It is also expected that the Democrat Party base will support this legislation and vote for Democrat Party candidates regardless of their personal viewpoints on the legislation. This bespeaks of a party leadership that is more interested in being rulers rather than leaders, as I have discussed in my Article, "To Be Rulers or to Be Leaders".

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI)

Governments and  Modern Big Business have begun to create Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) departments within their agencies or companies. A common description of DEI is that Diversity is the characteristics and experiences, both seen and unseen, that make everyone unique. Equity is ensuring fair access to opportunities and resources, while taking into consideration individual’s barriers or privileges and eliminating systemic barriers and privileges. While Inclusion is the actions taken to understand, embrace, and leverage the unique identities and perspectives of all individuals so that all feel welcomed, valued, and supported.
While the ideals of DEI are lofty, they are often very difficult to quantify in legal terms. And while the objective of DEI is noble, the means to achieve them are often ignoble. DEI has often been implemented by the suppression of workplace speech within their agencies or companies and the limiting of employment and promotions to those persons who fit within their DEI criteria. These DEI policies and decisions are, therefore, an assault on the Free Speech Rights of their workforce and often result in reverse discrimination against those persons who do not fit within their DEI criteria. In this, they are in violation of our Natural and Constitutional Rights and Non-Discriminatory Civil Rights laws, rules, and regulations. As such, DEI has promoted more harm than good in American society and needs to be discontinued in all arenas in which it exists.

Doxing

Doxing (sometimes written as Doxxing) is the act of revealing identifying information about someone online, such as their real name, home address, workplace, phone, financial, and other personal information. That information is then circulated to the public — without the victim's permission.While the practice of revealing personal information without one’s consent predates the internet, the term doxing first emerged in the world of online hackers in the 1990s, where anonymity was considered sacred. Feuds between rival hackers would sometimes lead to someone deciding to "drop docs" on somebody else, who had previously only been known as a username or alias. "Docs" became "dox" and eventually became a verb by itself.The definition of doxing has expanded beyond the hacker world community and now refers to personal information exposure.

Equality and Equity

In the context of social systems such as education, politics, and government, the terms equity and equality have similar but slightly different meanings. Equality refers to scenarios in which all segments of society have the same levels of opportunity and support. Equity is the concept in which all segments of society have the same, or nearly the same, outcomes of equality. Equity is most nefarious in that the ‘equality of outcome’ takes precedent over ‘equality of opportunity’. Therefore, with equity you have discrimination for persons or groups rather than against persons or groups.

"Equity" requires that some people or groups of people get preferential treatment over other persons or groups of people, which implies that the other person or groups obtain lesser treatment, which is the antithesis to “Equality”. Equity requires that one person or group of persons be equal in income, possessions, or benefits, which does not take into account a person’s intelligence, knowledge, experience, hard work, motivations, talents, skills, and abilities in the reward for their efforts. Equity also has the problem of when it should end. Oftentimes, the goals of equity are nebulous or changing, or utopian, which necessitates that the equity will become unending. This equity then becomes a permanent feature of our society that negates equality.

Greater Good versus the Common Good

The term The Common Good has been replaced by the term The Greater Good in the minds of many Americans, and many Americans believe these terms are in the Constitution. However, the Constitution only speaks of the “general Welfare” in the Preamble and in Article I, Section. 8 of the Constitution: “… and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States”, but the terms “Common Good” and the “Greater Good” do not appear in the Constitution. Consequently, as Article. I, Section. 8 enumerates the legislative powers of Congress; it thereby restricts the powers of the Federal government, as explained in my Article, “Limited and Enumerated Powers”.

While The Greater Good may seem innocuous and beneficial in practice, it can be very harmful. The logic of The Greater Good is that whatever does the most good for the most people is for The Greater Good. Using the logic of The Greater Good allows the government to implement any government policy or program that they determine is for the benefit of most Americans, even if it may be harmful to some Americans and, indeed, may violate the Natural and Constitutional rights of some Americans. The Common Good term restricts government actions to those that are enumerated and delineated in the Constitution that is beneficial for all the people while not favoring any groups of people, nor violate the Natural and Constitutional rights of any American. The Greater Good would also allow the government to intervene in any speech or actions by individuals, entities, or groups of people to restrict their words and deeds to what they determine is for The Greater Good, or at a minimum restrict those words and deeds they deem harmful to Americans.

Consequently, the term ‘The Greater Good’ allows for any actions by the government, while the term ‘The Common Good’ restricts government actions. Therefore, the term The Greater Good is utilized to circumvent or ignore the Constitutional restraints on government and is antithetic to “The Meaning to the Ninth and Tenth Amendments to the US Constitution”. When the government pursues The Greater Good, it must by necessity become despotic to achieve The Greater Good.

Herd Mentality

“Herd Mentality” is the tendency of the people in a group to think and behave in ways that conform with others in the group rather than as individuals. Also known as mob mentality and pack mentality, and lesser-known as gang mentality, it describes how people can be influenced by their peers to adopt certain behaviors on a largely emotional rather than rational basis. When individuals are affected by mob or pack mentality, they often make different decisions than they would have made individually.

Herd Mentality is best driven by fear and often irrational fear. Herd Mentality allows for the lemmings to run off a cliff (which, by the way, is untrue of lemmings). The rhetoric and exertions of Political Correctness, Virtue Signaling, Cancel Culture, Wokeness, Identity Politics, Equity and Equality, are based on the anticipated reactions of the herd. And herd mentality is the modus operandi for "Progressives/Leftists" to stir up passions and achieve their goals. It is also the tactics of the Democrat Party to galvanize their voters and win elections.

Identity Politics

"Identity Politics" is a political activity in which groups of people having a particular racial, religious, ethnic, social, or cultural identity tend to promote their own specific interests or concerns without regard to the interests or concerns of any larger political group. Identity Politics often pit one group against another group, and they always result in inequalities in society because the advantages given to one group always redound to disadvantages of other groups.

Identity Politics is most often practiced by the Democrat Party, as it has morphed into a party based mostly on Identity Politics, while the Republican Party is based mostly on its principles. A generalization that is not always true in the specifics of an individual issue but is generally true for the whole. The claims by the Democrat Party that the Republican Party also engages in Identity Politics are mostly a projection of their own Identity Politics activities, as the Republican Party generally does not target racial, religious, ethnic, social, or cultural identity as the basis of its policies and positions.

Mainstream Cultural Media (MCM)

"Mainstream Cultural Media" is those Academia, actors and actresses, celebrities, fine artists, musicians, poets and writers, producers, directors, and scriptwriters, sportsmen and sportswomen, etc. that are overwhelmingly of a liberal/progressive disposition, along with their mainstream media counterparts. I believe that it is time to provide a label for the personages who habituate in this Liberal/Progressive agenda.

Mainstream Media (MSM)

"Mainstream Media" and "MSM" is a term and abbreviation used to refer collectively to the various large mass news media that influence many people, and both reflect and shape prevailing currents of thought. The term is used to contrast with alternative media which may contain content with more dissenting thought at variance with the prevailing views of mainstream sources.

Modern Big Business (MBB)

"Modern Big Business" has branched out to social activism, rather than constraining themselves to provide products and services in a timely manner which the common man can afford. In doing so, they are taking company monies from their shareholders' profits, or increased customers' prices, or both, to spend on their social activism.  For a company to spend monies on social activism, for which the other people may not agree, without the permission of the other people is immoral. In the advertising of their social activism, they are also skewering the political and social environment to fit their vision of good social policy, as they do not present a balanced viewpoint of this social activism. And most of this social activism by companies has a decidedly Progressive/Leftists orientation.

Modern Education

In the past, we could often differentiate between K-12 Education and Colleges and Universities in their aims and goals. Today, however, "Modern Education" seems to have one goal – the Indoctrination of their students in "Progressives/Leftists" ideas and ideology. No longer are educational goals of knowledge, truths, and rational thinking the aim of education, but they have been replaced with "Indoctrination versus Education". As a result, "Reasoning", proper "Dialog & Debate", and "A Civil Society" have been replaced by Progressives/Leftists tenets. Also, "Knowledge, Experience, and Wisdom" have been devalued if they run contrary to Progressives/Leftists dogma.

They are also immune to public criticism and critique, as well as disciplinary actions when they overstep their bounds (and indeed they believe that they have no bounds) by Public Teacher Unions and Tenure protections. As a result, we have raised several generations of youth that are misinformed, ill-informed, uninformed, and irrational.

Natural Rights

As is typical for most people discussing Natural Rights (myself included), they conflate the ideas of natural law and natural rights into the term Natural Rights. Though these two ideas are closely related, they are not the same. Natural law is inherent and fundamental in a society of sentient beings that wish to survive and thrive in their interactions with each other. Natural rights are those rights derived from natural law which establish a zone of liberty and freedom for an individual that no other person, group of persons or government can violate. The issues and concerns of Philosophers, Theologians, Legal scholars, and others involved in this epistemology are to determine what are the natural laws, and what are the natural rights derived from these natural laws. A fine legal article (but easily readable and understandable by non-lawyers) is A Law Professor’s Guide to Natural Law and Natural Rights by Randy E. Barnett, which defines and explains the ideas of natural law and natural rights.

When I utilize the term ‘Natural Rights’ (with beginning capitalization), I am deliberately conflating the ideas of natural law and natural rights for convenience purposes.

Political Correctness (PC)

"PC" is a term that originally meant the avoidance of expressions or actions that can be perceived to exclude or marginalize or insult people who are socially disadvantaged or discriminated against. However, PC has devolved into a term that is utilized to silence anyone who disagrees with the Liberal/Progressive agenda. PC now means that you cannot do or say anything that a Liberal/Progressives doesn't want to see or hear. It has become a term that excludes people rather than its original intent to include all people.

Progressives/Leftists

"Progressives/Leftists" is a form of governmental activism in which the government is involved in the non-governmental affairs of the people to ensure social justice and for the protection of group interests in which they discern to be at a disadvantage or susceptible to adverse influences from outside sources. As such, they are more intrusive into the personal and commercial affairs of people, groups, organizations, and businesses that they deem helpful or hurtful to groups of people. Progressivism/Leftism has also been associated with Judicial Activism. In the context of United States law, Judicial activism is a judicial philosophy holding that the courts can and should go beyond the applicable law to consider broader societal implications of its decisions. It is sometimes used as an antonym of judicial restraint. It is usually a pejorative term, implying that judges make rulings based on their own political agenda rather than precedent and take advantage of judicial discretion. The definition of judicial activism and the specific decisions that are activist are controversial political issues. The question of judicial activism is closely related to judicial interpretation, statutory interpretation, and separation of powers.

Republican Party Leaders

"Republican Party Leaders" are those elected Republicans at all levels of government that establish the political goals and policy agendas of the Republican Party. While the political goals and policy agendas of Republicans are often in-line with Constitutional principles and a Free Enterprise economic system, their effectiveness in achieving these goals is dubitable. They often seem to be more interested in bipartisanship and accommodation (comity) with Democrat Party Leaders and the protection of special interest persons or groups that support them, rather than the protection of all Americans Liberties and Freedoms. Their manners and politeness in the approach that they utilize to achieve their goals are often ill-suited to the barroom brawls of modern American politics. They are often disorganized and lack the messaging and voting disciple on their members for their political and policy agendas, unlike the Democrat Party Leaders exercise over their members. They often have the propensity of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory, thus frittering away the opportunities to make America better.

Social Engineering

"Social Engineering" (political science) is a top-down effort to influence particular attitudes and social behaviors on a large scale—most often undertaken by governments, but also carried out by media, academia, or private groups—in order to produce desired characteristics in a target population. Social engineering can also be understood philosophically as a deterministic phenomenon where the intentions and goals of the architects of the new social construct are realized. Some social engineers use the scientific method to analyze and understand social systems in order to design the appropriate methods to achieve the desired results in human subjects.

Social Engineering requires social control to implement its desired results. And social control requires an authoritative government to impose its mandates. Social Engineering also utilizes the techniques of Political Correctness, Virtue Signaling, Cancel Culture, Wokeness, Identity Politics, Equity and Equality, and Greater Good versus the Common Good, and accomplish with the support of  Progressives/Leftists, Mainstream Cultural Media, Mainstream Media, Modern Big Business, and Social Media to achieve its goals. It is often driven by an unconstrained vision of America, as explained In the book A Conflict of Visions: Ideological Origins of Political Struggles by Thomas Sowell. However, this unconstrained vision is not a vision, but a delusion, and as such, has no chance of success. And an authoritative government is antithetical to our Liberties and Freedoms and anathema to our American Ideals and Ideas.

Social Media

"Social Media" are those websites that allow their users to post comments and opinions. Sites such as Amazon, Apple, Google, Facebook, Instagram (a division of Facebook), Microsoft, Twitter, and YouTube (a division of Google) are the largest of these Social Media. They have become Big Tech that now edits or bans content with which they do not agree. This is accomplished by automated filtering, tagging, and removing content that they determine is “untruthful” or “disruptive”.  And, of course, they are the arbiter of untruths or disruptions based on their Progressive/Leftist ideology or biases, thus silencing the voices of those that would dare disagree with them.

Virtue Signaling

"Virtue Signaling" is the action or practice of publicly expressing opinions or sentiments intended to demonstrate one's good character or the moral correctness of one's position on a particular issue. But good character and morality should not only be expressed by words but must be accompanied by deeds. And the deeds need to result in positive results for them to be virtuous. Therefore, we should never forget that actions speak louder than words, and good deeds are required to be virtuous. Good deeds are not the same as supporting legislation that feels good but insisting on legislation the does good. And no good can come about if it violates someone’s "Natural, Human, and Civil Rights". Virtue Signaling comes part and parcel with Political Correctness, as only politically correct speech is allowed to be expressed in Virtue Signaling as Progressives/Leftists believe that you cannot be virtuous unless you are politically correct.

Verbal 'Virtue Signaling' has been fashionable and commonplace for Progressives/Leftists for decades to justify their policy positions. It is the de-facto standard in Mainstream Cultural Media and Mainstream Media. Unfortunately, the actions accompanied by the verbal Virtue Signaling have been less than virtuous, as many of these actions infringe on the Natural, Human, and Civil Rights of individuals. Today, however, verbal Virtue Signaling is becoming commonplace in Modern Big Business and Social Media. Virtue Signaling that is verbal without many actions by Modern Big Business and the suppression of Free Speech in Social Media. We all should remember the importance of deeds rather than words, as I have Chirped on “04/01/19 Words and Deeds” and only reward virtue for the virtuous deeds and pay little heed to the virtuous words. We should also remember the wisdom of Benjamin Franklin – “Well done is better than well said.”

Wokeness

"Wokeness" is a political term that originated in the United States, and it refers to a perceived awareness of issues that concern social justice and racial justice. It derives from the African-American Vernacular English expression "stay woke", whose grammatical aspect refers to a continuing awareness of these issues. First used in the 1940s, the term has resurfaced in recent years as a concept that symbolizes perceived awareness of social issues and movements.

However, Wokeness only can occur if you adopt the Progressives/Leftist viewpoints and policies. Viewpoints and policies that are often diminutive of “Reasoning”, and disparaging of America history as I have written about in my Articles on “American History”. Wokeness also requires that you adopt “Political Correctness”, and if you do not do so, you can be subjected to “Cancel Culture”, as noted above. Unfortunately, many Progressives/Leftists and those in the Mainstream Media and Mainstream Cultural Media support Wokeness, and dangerously many Colleges and Universities, as well as Politicians, have adopted or submitted to Wokeness.


The main difference between Progressives/Leftists and Constitutional Conservatism is in their interpretation of the Constitution, as I have written in my Article, “A Republican Constitution or a Democratic Constitution”. Democrats tend to interpret the Constitution in a democratic manner, while Republicans tend to interpret the Constitution in a republican manner. A secondary difference is in their style of governance, as I have written in my Article, “To Be Rulers or to Be Leaders”, where Democrats tend to rule while Republicans tend to lead. “Progressives/Leftists”, the “Mainstream Media”, the “Mainstream Cultural Media”, "Modern Big Business", and "Social Media" are a detriment to Americans, as they often mislead the American public with their skewered opinions and viewpoints. Recently, they have started to suppress any viewpoints but their own. If this continues to happen, we run the risk of surrendering our "Natural, Human, and Civil Rights" through misinformation, misrepresentations, and sometimes outright falsehoods that these people propagate. “Big Tech offers the Left the holy grail of speech regulation: censorship with no accountability to voters and no constitutional restraints,” Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) commented in a March 11 tweet. “This is why liberals not-so-secretly love these monopolies. They do the Left’s bidding.

Political Correctness”, “Cancel Culture”, and “Wokeness” are an attempt by many to tear down and rebuild American society and government in their “Utopian” vision of America. Unfortunately, those people engaged in these activities can never answer the three questions of Thomas Sowell that will destroy most of their arguments – ‘Compared to what?’, ‘At what cost?’ and ‘What hard evidence do you have?’. Until they can answer these questions, the Politically Correct, Cancel Culture, and Woke must be condemned and disparaged as antithetical to American principles of “Freedoms, Liberties, Equalities, and Equal Justice for All”.

"Mainstream Cultural Media (MCM)", "Mainstream Media (MSM)", "Modern Big Business (MBB)", and "Social Media" are different aspects of the same issue. The issue is that these persons or entities consider themselves more intelligent, better educated, and morally superior that they are, of course, always correct, and they, therefore, should be able to dictate to others their values and social policy positions. They reserve unto themselves the right to determine the truth, and any contrary facts or evidence may be suppressed. Anyone who disagrees with them may be "Demonize, Denigrate, Disparage (The Three D's)", or have their free speech rights suppressed for the greater good and for a more equitable society.
