E.g., can you say this:

He opposed the proposal on the grounds that it was unethical, wasteful, and racist.

My actual sentence is this:

Corporate propaganda has instead attacked these things on the grounds that they “reduce the ‘freedom’ of the individual, restrict ‘initiative’, or hamper ‘free’ enterprise”.

Hi, Andrew—I don't see any problem with your using "on the grounds" to refer to multiple reasons. All of the reasons that follow "that" are understood to be included.
