big amusement industries

Alan Lomax 1915-2002:

I mean, you and your CBS and all the big amusement industries represent a way of silencing everybody.

Communication was supposed to be two-way, but it turned out to be basically one-way.

From those people who can afford to own a transmitter, which costs a few million dollars, to a little guy who can afford to own a receiver that costs a few bucks.

So there are millions of receivers and people at the other end, and only a few transmitters. I think that is one of the major—if not the major—human problem now. Because everybody is off the air.
