Non-stop Barking

"If you spend all day and all night broadcasting, how can you effectively listen?"

But the owners do listen, not to the broadcasts - to the responses. Filtering based on the message being received as intended is relatively easy. Since the intent is to engender afflictive emotion in those who disagree and sheepish herding instinct in nearly everyone else, the messages are indirect and carefully crafted.

These propaganda methods have been studied extensively for centuries. For them to be effective, they must employ the best sociological and technology resources currently available.

But what if said ownership is widely dispersed and even friendly? Ownership of sentient beings by a huge number of compassionate individuals using the best of what is available to assist each other? The competition will probably need "a new drug" and will likely have a hard time inventing and promoting it.
