Propaganda rules the world
Propaganda rules the world , and once a closed minded opinion is formed based on crap misinformation and ill conceived simplified views not even a direct hit from an A-bomb can change some peoples illogical views!
We , forget that we live in a full market economy , if you don't sell a product that the market expects , wants or desires at a useful affordable price then no amount of government tax paid subsidies will keep you afloat period!
As for the failures in industry , like all armies one cannot blame the soldiers , if their leaders are too greedy , dumb and stupid and locked into past glories , and thus fail to read the correct market and legislative trends (Anti Competitive Trades Practice Acts or "The Clean Air Act 1956" is but the grandfather of all Anti Pollution legislation that came after that , traces it roots back to the killer smog of 1952 in London generated from excessive small burning open coal fires spewing air pollution from every chimney pot in London including the old cheap Coal Fired Battersea Power Station )
We can now see this effect permeating , the moribund and dying monolithic Audio entertainment industry of the big 4 like EMI selling last centuries technology, and bemoaning imaginary demons like piracy, in the new age of change, while the companies are viciously sinking in the self created morass , the top five using old last century ideas , slashing staff to give themselves excessively generous increases in stipends , and handing what market they have left , to the more hip open minded niche market producers , why have not all the Financial Markets punished them for their collective stupidity , remains unanswered!
Strangely , the English still make small ships less then 10,000 tonnes cost effectively using a prefabricated technique the Germans invented to build U-boats in 1943 and much cheaper then the Hyundai Yards in Korea which are geared up to build vessels not less then 60,000 tonnes and above gross weight like super tankers , bulk carriers and super sized 10,000 plus cargo container ships!
Yes , the old propaganda story , of blame it on the workers for seeking a decent liveable wage , to cloth feed , raise and educate the next generation , for all the failures in senior management still rules to this day!
