The Real Issue in Mississippi

Leo Huberman, Paul M. Sweezy

Abstract


The volume of printed and spoken words the U.S. mass-communication media can pour out on and around an event like the admission of a Negro to the University of Mississippi is staggering to the imagination. So also is the capacity of this fantastically productive word-machine to say next to nothing and to avoid real issues. The situation is somewhat analogous to that of the U.S. economic system as a whole: technological progress makes possible an amazingly efficient productive apparatus, but its output is increasingly a compound of unemployment and misery on the one hand and junk on the other.
