Weaver’s Stereopticon is the creation of a vast machine to instill new values in the populace.

The major networks are following the playbook outlined by Weaver.
Not only are product placements embedded into entertainment in an effort to sell more cars, computers, music, etc, to a consumer who must be constantly stimulated, but the narrative of the left has become an increasingly important component as well. How many television shows have you seen which present the homosexual lifestyle as normal and nothing out of the ordinary? One network now has a “green week” to help instill faux virtues in its viewing audience.

Weaver describes the Great Stereopticon as a machine of three parts, the parts that existed in his time:
the press, the motion picture, and the radio. Since then, the Internet has been added. – Ideas Have Consequences – Chapter 5 | What Would The Founders Think?
