I am reminded of the Punic War as the Romans are closing in on Carthage and the Carthagian Senate debates supporting Hanibal with troops and money or that substituting disabled kids for rich people's kids to sacrifice is the reason they are loosing. Sending half the troops and killing half the kids does not seem the answer.

The speaker also forgot that the Reagan administration killed the fairness doctrine and allowed one company to dominate a media market which tends to alter any debate in a democracy where people don't know each other.
