This is hogwash:.
The rich have their think-tank minions commenting on Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission saying that Citizens United also benefits the non-rich who may also buy ads. However, the rich control much media and are out to kill Net Neutrality too.
Exactly how, other than word of mouth and pure common sense do the poorer people get a say in how things are run and what ideas are placed before the people as a whole?
If they kill Net Neutrality, even that arena or forum will be completely "privatized" such that the super-rich, the Plutocrats, the Banksters and their corporate fellow travelers, will control its content against the truth: against fairness and justice that are one and the same.
Just look at what the Koch Brothers are doing now: "Big Brothers: Thought Control at Koch"
Now, that's Big Business, which the "Big Government" site doesn't ever seem to be worried about, even though Koch Industries is a major polluter and is in essence raping and destroying the planet and people.
Some people defend greed. Others tell the children not to be greedy pigs. Some children understand the message and reason for it. They grow up not polluting and raping the planet and people. Other's though are too stupid to receive the absolute objective truth that polluting and raping are never good for the planet or people in whole or in part.
Those stupid ones grow up to be Charles and David Koch and Andrew Breitbart (of the moronically pro-Koch Brothers "Big Government" site).
Andrew Breitbart is the sociopaths' apologist — meaning excuser. His life's calling is spreading totally toxic dung that the Koch Brothers' Big Business, Big Corportocracy, Kleptocracy, Plutocracy, is great for everyone, even though, again, it's polluting and raping the planet and people.
The laissez-faire liars will tell you they don't support the Federal Reserve Banksters. What they won't tell you is that they simply want to takeover the Banksters slave-business. It's gangster rivalry for territory, or I should say, terrortory.
You would be even worse off under the Kochs than the Ben Bernankes of this world. Ben at least as some understanding, like Henry Ford, that the workers must be able to afford the Model-T's. The Kochs really don't care, as they'll be long dead by the time their evil on Earth in this iteration of their existence catches up with their Big Business.
What they don't understand is that there is no eternal escape from reaping what they are sowing. They do owe the devil, and the devil will collect. That's spiritual.
Some people get it and do the right things accordingly, also just because they are the right things to do. The reward comes as an aftereffect.
This Koch activity hasn't been tested in court yet. If they fire people for refusing political indoctrination on the job, it will be tested.
I'm suggesting that the Kochs will lose that fight in court even including if it reaches this current Robert's Supreme Court, which if the lower court's reasoning is tight enough, it won't.
I can tell you that I would definitely refuse to receive any politicking on the job by any employer if I were not granted equal liberty on the job to denounce the particular political views of that employer.
If I were working at a Koch-owned enterprise, having been grandfathered in, I can assure you I'd be telling them I'm not attending any political meetings, I'm not going to listen to any supervisors telling me what to think politically, and I'm not going to receive or read any political tracts, etc., from the Kochs or their corporate minions, dupes, and sycophants.
How could they then not fire me or discriminate against me on account of my political beliefs? I'd have a legal case against them, and in my earlier years, would file suit and win. I am not now though litigious, but younger men fight back more readily for a number of reasons I won't defend. It's just how it is right now with this generation.
