The Fringe

In the entertainment media, anyone who is anti-government is portrayed as "fringe"-- except in a few (extremely popular) franchises, anyway (even then, they may still be fringe, but on the right side).

That seems strange to me... until I remember that the media is a necessary tool to prop up the failed idea of political government. 

Without the propaganda being hammered into our heads from every direction, not many people would continue to believe that something they know is wrong can be "right" if you have government do it. So the idea that doing wrong is still wrong no matter who you have do it for you must be portrayed as "fringe" to scare the population into rejecting the idea automatically.

It seems to work fairly well, if you ignore the cracks in the plan.

That's not to say that there aren't some crazies or evil ideas on other parts of the fringe-- it's a big category and covers a lot of ideas.


Look at that face...
