There’s an article on the New Yorker explaining how (the US) Congress gave away the EM digital spectrum for TV transmissions to broadcasting corporations for free. The digital spectrum is worth tens of billions of dollars now. The articles also raises an interesting matter, about the fact that Americans would prefer to pay to have “television for all” instead of having health care for all. Health care is a basic need for a society, yet the richest implementation of human societies – the US-american’s – refuses to give free health care to everyone of its citizen. This is one of the most absurd things I can think of.
