Who cast the first stone? Did people stop reading newspapers because they were becoming shit filled with advertisements and no content, or did the newspapers become shit filled with advertisements and no content because people stopped reading them?
The trend I've observed was that people used to buy newspapers, but then free newspapers, and later online newspapers, filled with ads and ADHD-quality content started becoming a thing, and they rather quickly eliminated their competition, or at the very least forced the competition to fight on their level, which in the end hasn't turned out well for anyone.
You have no clue what is politically important. You get to vote on the end result of years of discussion and mediation. If it were up to you to decide what to vote on, you would make a law that McDonalds shouldn't be allowed to sell french fries without ketchup, or something equivalent. It's not that you're particularly stupid, but your world view doesn't cover the entire nation or the entire world. It just covers what you eat at McDonalds.
As much as you might dislike it, this is why career politicians exist. They dedicate their lives to understanding and producing politics on a level you will never comprehend.
Never buy what you do not want because it is cheap; it will be dear to you. -- Thomas Jefferson
