“The challenge of modernity is to live without illusions and without becoming disillusioned. I’m a pessimist because of intelligence, but an optimist because of will.” – Antonio Gramsci, 1891-1937

Timothy Pilgrim is an associate professor at Western Washington University, and a published poet with over 100 poems to his name. In this edition of the podcast, we talk to Tim about what the mass media has become vs. what it was designed to be, how the media shapes and informs public opinion, and why there are ‘necessary illusions’ that must be imposed on the public in order to divert them from the political process. An interesting show as ever so check it out!
