David John Marotta was interviewed on radio 1070 WINA’s Schilling Show discussing the internet, the government, and growing distrust of communication being free.

Listen to the segment here:


Other questions to ponder:

  • By what criteria does the government identify the originators of dangerously contagious ideas?
  • By what methods does the government persecute the sources of these ideas?
  • What is the government’s role in quelling discontent?
  • Are the government’s actions in heavy-handed surveillance and control causing the very social unrest they are designed to squelch?
  • How much do the political parties agree that the government should be nudging people in as many ways as possible?
  • What is the social cost of such nudging? Does it do more harm than good?
  • How much are our news sources selected and filtered for us?
  • Is Radio a better media simply because it is not as easily filtered automatically by computer algorithms?
