Summary

Harold Innis understood that the capacity of modern electronic mass media to divert (entertain), advertise (sell services and products), and justify ("spin" politics) was leading to imbalance at the centre of the West - the United States. Many phenomena that we are seeing there so many years later were foreseen by Innis. Examples would be the emphasis of revelation over reason, the presentation of politics as entertainment, and the employment of war (force) to solve relatively small problems that would have been previously addressed by diplomacy (intelligence).
