A little more Vonnegut

Back in 1931… the Great Depression was going on, so that the station and the streets teemed with homeless people, just as they do today. The newspapers were full of worker layoffs and farm foreclosures and bank failures, just as they are today. All that has changed, in my opinion, is that, thanks to television we can now hide a Great Depression. We may even be hiding a third world war.

    Indeed this sounds too like what is happening today. I think it could be hard to hide the coming depression and growing world war, but I think newspapers and television are definitely being cleverly used to disguise and shift the blame for the economic problems and middle east wars.
