To what extent do some or many of the following points reflect the state of the press today? In reading the following excerpt from the well known 100 year old document – deemed to be a forgery by many, and blueprint for world conquest by many more – and assuming it merely be an anonymous work of profound literature, of entertaining fiction, or a frightening discourse in political science, its diabolical prescience to reflect what has come to pass in the worldwide press today is incredibly shocking. As in Machiavelli's The Prince, the diabolical mechanisms proposed therein to manufacture and control public opinion to serve the interests of a despotic oligarchy bears close study.
The very word “freedom” has been circumscribed in this despotic system from what is deemed “unalienable”, to what is ordained “legal”. And it becomes pertinent to ask the question: Is that state of affairs reflected in the tortuous reality of today? As the text asserts: “all freedom will thus be in our hands, since the laws will abolish or create only that which is desirable for us according to the aforesaid program.”
Has that happened in the United States? In whose hands is this freedom? How did that mechanism come to pass in America? In Europe? Without perceptively understanding how this hijacking was orchestrated in the West which itself originated the press, no reform is tenable because the same forces which orchestrated it will continue to sustain it and will subvert all reform including that which sends them to the gallows.
Anyone can benefit from any prose, literature or political science, and the Mighty Wurlitzer  whose abominable existence is as empirical as the origin of this nefarious document is mysterious, apparently has been studying this work of art, like the Chinese Sun Tzu's The Art of War, and the US Military's From PSYOP to MindWar, rather diligently.
Therefore, in order to institute any meaningful reforms as wished by Robert Jensen et. al.,  how do the journalism savants propose to counter this hijacking of the press by the Mighty Wurlitzer – even under the (highly questionable) premise that an informed polity can be a useful obstruction to despotism – such that giving the press the constitutional protection of "freedom" remains in practice something more than highly polished public relations for social control by any 'ubermensch' oligarchs, as for instance outlined in the Machiavellian text below.
It further bears to keep in mind that this highjacking of the press is not in isolation, but situated in a larger context that includes the oligarchy acquiring full monopolistic control in society of all that is meaningful, from money to economics to industry to education to entertainment, including acquiring full control over the glorified “errand boys”  who are dutifully elected by the polity only to represent the front faces of the behind-the-scene oligarchy. How are any reforms, be they for the press, or for the monetary system,  to be instituted under such an unvarnished reality?
