Teleread on the Entertainment-Copyright Complex
Teleread goes off on a lengthy link-filled rant against the Entertainment-Copyright Complex (Universities, John Edwards and the Entertainment-Copyright Complex).
Eisenhower warned of the need to guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. More than a few DemocratsIm onecould appreciate the Eisenhowers principles and perspicacity here. Ike saw a need for the military but did not want it to dominate American life. Eisenhower was seeking a middle ground by the standards of the time, and I wonder how he would have felt today about a different complexthe Entertainment-Copyright Complex.
