That's why transport or infrastructure should be separated from media or content.

Like I can chose from who I buy power or DSL, including TV and telphone, even though there is only one power line and one telephone or fiber cable to my house.

But I live in a democracy mainly run by and for the people...

(as a foreigner) I am not fully aware of the possibilities of a PAC but I don't see it as a democratic problem when like-minded people band together to push a subject, compare it to starting a political party.

What makes it bad and undemocratic is when the democratic principle of one-man one-vote is breached because some can contribute vastly more to 'their' PAC than others can to an opposing PAC.

Using the means available is their lawful right.

Thanks for clarifying.

But no, we don't agree.

I did cast a wide net, the adversaries of Israel might or might not be the same as the rogue states.
What they do have in common is a wish to drive Israel back into the sea and they usually consider The West an accomplice of Israel or vice-versa.

The stuff produced for large screen HD is typically done with lenses that by themselves have a great bokeh as it is called, no need to have processing done by Google.

And by consequence you must have endured many instances where this 'isolating of the subject by minimal depth of field' was intended to be part of the scene.

It seems you have forgotten or never heard of the fact the allied Arab governments of the Arab states that attacked Israel in 1947-48 ordered Arabs living in what is now Israel to leave their houses and towns so they could kick out the Yews.

You also seem blind for the recurring fact no Arab government wants to admit these well educated Palestinian refugees in their own country.

This all does not make good the illegal settlements the Israeli's continue to build on what effectively is occupied Jordanian and Syrian land.

I would say there is a slight difference.

The Israelis would use a nuclear bomb as a last resort to keep what they have, a tiny strip of land.

Their adversaries and a few other rogue states and groups are not above using a nuclear bomb to get what they want, a tiny strip of land or even the whole western world.
