    Kornhauser's idea of "mass society" refers not to an identifiable type of society, but to a temporary condition likely to develop in communal or, more typically perhaps, in pluralist or democratic societies, a condition which makes these societies vulnerable to transformation into totalitarian societies.   But in “Fahrenheit ” Bradbury was warning us about the threat of mass media to reading, about the bombardment of digital sensations that could substitute for critical : Ramin Bahrani.

    Civil Society and Political Theory By Jean L. Cohen and Andrew Arato In this first serious work on the theory of civil society to appear in many years, Jean Cohen and Andrew Arato contend that the concept of civil society articulates a contested terrain in the West that could become the primary locus for the expansion of democracy and rights. The media influences politics by helping to shape public opinion. The United States has a democratic government, meaning that the people vote to elect leaders and change laws based on the majority. When these voters rely on the mass media to assist them in developing an opinion for determining a vote, the media influences politics.

    Political Science. The Shocking Paper Predicting the End of Democracy. Human brains aren’t built for self-rule, says Shawn Rosenberg. That’s more evident than : Rick Shenkman.   Personal political identity affects views of the nation's healthcare system, how one views the economy, one's overall satisfaction with the way things are going in the nation, views of the safety of the nation's schools, worry about mass shootings, job satisfaction, views of the state of the environment and views of one's personal life.
