Media and global age in the service of democracy or profit
Uniform styles and forms of life, global culture and worldview define the time we live in. We have been caught by the flow of globalization which is inevitably polarizing and hierarchizing the world. There are two parallel processes in that world: on one hand globalization of power and prestige, on the other, poverty and lack of prospects. Neoliberalism in all spheres of life from economy to culture - recognised as Americanization of the world, wants to present itself as a synonim for freedom and democracy. We witness that in the process of globalization profit is devouring everything, poverty is increasing, solidarity and equality are disappearing, technological progress and industrialization of life and culture are suppressing the labor, number of the unemployed is growing incredibly, an individual is deteriorating rapidly, ethical values are degraded. Totalitarianism and production obedience are acting, intellectual critical awareness is retreating and the presented experts are becoming the best interpreters of owner's desires and intentions - 'spiritual militia of authority' (Julien Benda). In such circumstances, this question is imposed: what happens to the media? Is its role to inform citizens so they could make productive decisions (to contribute to development of democracy), or to misinform and confuse them, drag their attention 'making the unimportant important' and then to mediate between the citizens and the manipulators who use the media to make an offer which cannot be refused thus placing citizens in the service of profit.
