High school me is bummed out that republicans are giving the term "alternative" some terrifying new definitions.
"The very powerful and the very stupid have one thing in common, they don't alter their views to fit the facts. They alter the facts to fit their views."
a community station that I did a show on back in the 90s had stickers out for a while with "radio is my bomb" on them :-) .
which sort of gets to the point really - to avoid stupidy such as war by encouraging more open discussion.
back then there wasn't as much of that silly self-censorship disease that we see everywhere nowdays.
Tom Smith just put out a song called "Alternative Facts": https://tomsmith.bandcamp.com/track/alternative-facts
