Why not try to have a system without "privileged groups" that control the media (and most other things).[/b]

It is a nice ideal, but how do you do it? China made an attempt at that a long time ago and the results were catastrophic. I am imagining a less sudden and violent implementation. Expanding the middle-class is a good place to start. Criticizing the social system does not have to lead to a decrease in the quality of life of the middle-class. Persons have to be willing to understand that barriers prevent too many Chinese from entering the middle-class. The objective of criticizing the social system is to include more persons in that class.

We will have to answer that question in a new thread. Closing for length.
