The Myth of Media Watchdogs (tags)

"Again, defenders of the media will claim that the media simply is performing its duties of "the public's right to know," but one must ask the simple question, "Know what?"  If the media is presenting a false picture—and aiding and abetting a prosecutorial agent of the state in the commission of a felony—then we should ask whether or not journalists willingly are helping the state to lie."

Diversity and democracy (tags)

The key of your argumentation is that we can't "boycott" government (not like boycotting a specific product or store etc.). Because on your point of vue, what I call electoral aristocracy or delegation, "the modern concept of governmental authority" as you claim, is inevitable. First its modernity should be questioned. And even if there's an historic modernity in it, it still can be criticized (neoliberal capitalism also claims to be "modern").
