"The Fairness Doctrine was a policy of the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC), introduced in 1949, that required the holders of broadcast licenses both to present controversial issues of public importance and to do so in a manner that was — in the Commission's view — honest, equitable, and balanced. The FCC eliminated the Doctrine in 1987, and in August 2011 the FCC formally removed the language that implemented the Doctrine."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fairness_Doctrine

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Equal-time_rule

Reagan was the one who changed things. I remember when he was running for prez, they wouldn't run any of his movies because of these rules.

Now look at what it's evolved to.

No boner for Stein. Wait arent boners good?
Of all the candidates stein is prob the closest to giving me a slight chub, but that is not saying much as a strong breeze can still do it for me.

Boners can be good or bad. Not real boners, they're always good. Except in gym class I suppose.

See how much nicer life is when you can just go down to the shops and buy pussy and weed?

Gas money? A cultural thing?

historically they are very socially progressive in terms of equality (between men and women, different ethnicities and cultures, etc). they had some peasanty revolutions in the 30s against the concentration of wealth in the hands of few (see link). they created the system of the welfare state and decided rather arbitrarily that everyone should have the chance for a good standard of living. norway in particular got oil in the 70s, but didn't start saving that money longterm until they realized their oil reserves were going to run dry someday (something that hasn't happened in alberta due to the basically unlimited supply). they started saving up money and created a sovereign wealth fund which is the largest in the world. this year for the first time, due to oil prices, the income generated from interest on the fund exceeded the total oil revenues. in any case sweden and denmark, even without oil, managed to create a high standard of living. they all 3 have very strong democratic institutions that are far more representative of the will of the voters than north american/uk style voting systems.

this is a really short explanation that glosses over and ignores quite a few things, but it is some kind of insight at least. if you have more specific questions i'd be glad to attempt to answer. in short it is a cultural thing which was eventually aided by well managed resource wealth

Just go with it man, I mean weed and pussy! Down in the shops!

You want to make America great again, legalize weed and pussy and you'll have no more of this social unrest bullshit.

I guess you'll have to legalize cock too. I mean if that's what you're into, good on you, enjoy that cock and hey, here's hoping you can get it down on Main Street without fear of getting busted by the man.
