    Mediacracy, Mediastocracy or Mediarchy, literally The Rule of The Media is a form of government in which political power is concentrated within Mass Media. Mediacracy usually maintains itself Dem.png democratic means and aligns with authoritarian ideologies.

    History

    Media has been noted as having a very significant influence within politics since 18th century, as noted by the concept of the Fourth Estate of which coining is attributed to the Tradcon.png Classical Conservative writer and politician Edmund Burke (although others have been attributed the title). Showing the press as being a threat to traditional power structure of Europe of which was made up of three estates.

    The concept was later expanded upon in the 19th century, with the example being the Irish poet Indlibsoc.png Oscar Wilde who wrote in his essay "The Soul of Man Under Soc.png Socialism" the following:

    In old days men had the rack. Now they have the Press. That is an improvement certainly. But still it is very bad, and wrong, and demoralizing. Somebody — was it Conlib.png Burke? — called journalism the fourth estate. That was true at the time no doubt. But at the present moment it is the only estate. It has eaten up the other three. Arist.png The Lords Temporal say nothing, the Anglican Theocracyf.png The Lords Spiritual have nothing to say, and the Parl.png House of Commons has nothing to say and says it. We are dominated by Journalism.

    With the introduction of the radio, television and later the internet in the 20th century the concept of media rule was later expanded upon. Including writers such as Conserv.png conservative Con-t.png political pundit Kevin P. Philips (who coined the term "Mediacracy"), Chomsky.png Noam Chomsky, Libertarian.png Right-Libertarian author Fabian Tassano (who argued that dumbing down of mass media is an effect that ultimately leads to a society of faux-egalitarianism) and Nrx.png neoreactionary blogger Mencius Moldbug (Who argued that the media (along with universities) ultimately have the power to decide the intellectual hegemony of entire countries a power previously afforded to religious institutions).
