Also somewhat one-sided, but generally good information that most people never consider. The implication that “us vs. them” is some kind of western cultural invention exploited by “the man” dramatically weakens the video. It’s a shame they ended with that.

Yeah, I thought the first section about a scant few media corporations owning the airwaves was more interesting (and valid) than the “us vs. them” bits at the end of the video.
