“Shangri-Hell International Television (SHITV) has the monopoly on all media outlets, plus a new HQ to develop much more mind-controlling trite to make you feel better about yourselves. With the improve of media influence and technologies, a new movement of individuals power is rising. Utilizing art, music and a fuck ton of ‘likes’ the men and women are claiming back their voices and power, hacking into the systems that handle them, in search of the ultimate truth.”
