The war over the radio

2 posts in this topic

The right has had radio domination sense the begining of time. This was actually decent to objectivism, but it still had Christianity as a leading example of morality, bringing back down to more harm than good. Now, the left is angered and is fighting back. The right isn't going to let go of radio-and what neither groups notice-is that there is room for the both of them. Right and left, both running the radio, and with both of them up there, the more radical sides are going to be going-and more people are going to be convinced to radical action. Most people are going to be forced into the dichotomy that either the Left is morally correct, or the Right is ethically reasonable. Very few will realize that both are inept to be the leaders of our radio stations. People will either go Right or Left, going all for one or all for the other-no inbetween. Even though Objectivism can't really be called an inbetween, it has that quality. The right agrees with half of Objectivism(or at least used to), but despised the other. The left loves the half which the right despises, and despises that which the right loves. More or less, Objectivism is the inbetween of our nations predominant philosophies. How is it to get hold, and to show people reason, with the world convinced that they should either be Right or Left? How can this be fixed? Fight for more of the waves? Show the inbetween? How?

You must be quite young, and I hate to be the one to break this news to you, but there was actually a time before you were born. :P

All kidding aside, this right-leaning radio is a relatively new phenomenon, and the left used to dominate the radio airwaves just like they dominate the print media today.

More or less, Objectivism is the inbetween of our nations predominant philosophies.  How is it to get hold, and to show people reason, with the world convinced that they should either be Right or Left?  How can this be fixed?  Fight for more of the waves?  Show the inbetween?  How?

The battle is fought in academia, since the teaching of ideas emanates from there. From philosophers, to educators, to specialists, to writers, to the general public which eventually winds up with the popular version. Politics is probably the last thing to go, so look instead to the universities today to see the future world of tomorrow.
