For me, this has been a really informative thread. Find a hot-button topic and watch people take up their righteous indignation while remaining totally oblivious of the manipulation being applied, even as they are given the means to see the 'outrage' being manufactured. We've all heard the admonition: "There Are None So Blind As Those Who Will Not See" - seems so.
