        • It is telling when even some of the richest people are concerned by how much they are winning.

              • So, private companies choosing not to run ads in conjunction with articles of a politically sensitive nature is suddenly "authoritarianism?" You figure there were a lot of "Go Army" ads that accompanied the publication of the Pentagon Papers, or United Airlines ads during documentaries on the events of 9/11?
                That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

                  LOL.

                  Nice Randian deflection. Corporations aligning with a right wing political ideology that also promotes racism, misogyny, and militarism is authoritarianism. In fact, it is textbook fascism.

                  Your sacred private sector is complicit, not neutral. They have a dog in this fight: to preserve the structure that enriches their owners by dividing and impoverishing their labor pool.

                  BTW, I love how for a certain ideology the adjective "private" absolves the noun that follows from any responsibilities or any moral standard other than a sociopathic will to power. Yeah, those days are over, brother. People woke up. We gave Uncle Milty's Neoliberal Paradise a 40-year chance and, just like we warned you back in 1977, it's an abattoir.

                      See, that's why I never worry about my line of thinking. It's why I've posted before that notwithstanding the fact that liberal ideology should be the most popular, should win every election in a landslide because of its appeal to benefits for the masses, it struggles to gain 50%. Unfortunately for you, fortunately for the rest of us, you don't get to decide where I spend my money, what I think or who/what I support.

                      There is a reason Michael Jordan is extremely popular and reached the pinnacle of commercial success. He didn't pick a side. I'm sure it bugs the h e l l out of people like you, but then you chose to work for the man and expect the paycheck to be there at the end of the week.

                            Kind of weird, though, that when private, commercial companies chose to keep their advertising dollars away from stories, sites or events with a conservative bent, that action avoided the keen detection capabilities of your "authoritarianism" sniffer.

                            • Michael Jordan emerged as the best player in the league at a time when Magic and Bird were retiring. It was obvious he was going to take over as the face of basketball with little competition. It also coincided with the Dream Team sparking the initial globalization of the league. Regardless of opinions, were the NBA, Nike, and McDonalds not going to market the greatest player in the world? And MJ himself has come out multiple times in the past five years saying he shouldn’t be silent anymore and is donating $100 million to various BLM causes over the next decade.

                              Also, LeBron is about as outspoken as you can be and he has no problems getting endorsements.

                                If only conservative meant conservative. It doesn't. It means Republican. And we all have come to know what that means.
