Techno-oligarchy

Techno-oligarchy is a derogatory term used to describe a situation where the control of society appears to be in the hands of a perceived minority, who use technological means, such as apparent control over communications media like radio, television, etc. to enforce their rule.

An example of a techno-oligarchy would be a society where a few wealthy mega-corporations[?] owned the range of entertainment, news, and telecommunications, including media used for the education of the youth, and used this control to subtly indoctrinate the population to favor or disfavor principles and policy's as they wish.
