thanks for the warning and sparing me that.
Socialist realism was just what most proles and peasants in the Soviet Union wanted to see during that time. Since the proletariat and the peasantry was the patron of the arts, that's what artists produced. In capitalism artists have to produce what people with money want. If you want creative freedom as an artist you have to do it as a hobby. We'll make sure people have enough leisure time to do that.
For entertainment we'll do healthy mental states vs unhealthy mental states. We stick people in a machine that looks at their brain while they consoom entertainment. And then try to support what ever entertainment correlates with the mental states that correlates with good brain health. Basically we are going with neurology over psychology because that has more objective data. Ideologically socialist media is what ever doesn't melt your brain. Because i think that ruling classes try to cause brain damage to the population as a way to make people cognitively impaired enough to be lorded over and screwed out of the wealth they produce.
Censorship was not very effective. I think the most effective tool for shaping the entertainment information sphere was just making sure that there is much more of the stuff you want people to see, so that statistically, people see more of the "correct information". The Soviets banned certain entertainment and in a weird turn of events that was like a stamp of approval that made that media very desirable and also politically credible.
I think we have to make sure that people who create the information that goes in the brain of people have similar life experiences than their audiences. The reason mainstream media has become so unbearably cringe is because people in that system live in a completely different world, and they have nothing in common with the masses.
In order to produce ideological stability i think socialism has to do something that allows people to track where economic surplus and resources are spend, and it has to be very accessible for normal people, basically the complete opposite of the incomprehensible stuff what wall-street does, that even baffles many so called expert economists. I think Socialism does transparent economy anPost too long. Click here to view the full text.
