It leads to direction without question. Anytime the power structure (authority) wants to change direction they demonize the necessary parts of society
until it follows that direction. Eventually we accept anything the power structure wants. THe old phrase "Question Authority" becomes unnecessary.
In essence you follow along because you don't want any problems. At some point you become trained.
This happens subtlety every day through the propaganda box societies sit in front of all day. They shape everything from fashion, public policy, law,
religion, to not reporting when something within the power structure fails. A prime example of this would be the demonization of christianity, and the
promotion of islam. Our current administration supports the muslim brotherhood, has invited them into the administration fold, allows them access and
the ability to shape policy. does the MSM do reporting on this in detail?
Does the MSM cover for, ignore, and put lipstick on the pig of scandal? THe obvious answer is yes, to the point it is blatant. Here on ATS most
already know about the muslim brotherhood, but what of the masses? Anyone notice how the MSM thinks and speaks about global warming/climate change as
fact? You are considered stupid if you don't go along with the authoritative policy. Have you ever seen something repeated over and over until even
you accept what is being said without question? ? So they do a comedy routine on SNL and the comedic character that played Sarah Palin says I can see
Russia from my house, the policy makers pick it up and run with it, and now how many people believe it?
How many think Bush is a complete and utter idiot? Compared to Biden he is a rock star genius does the MSM point to the things Biden has said or done
and how it reflects on his intelligence? How many times has Charles Rangel, or Harry Reid been re elected? Common sense and logic don't even apply.
So many times we are trained to accept what is being said good or bad without question. Just look at the two most contentious debates here on ATS,
climate change and gun control. 30 years ago there wouldn't have been a debate today the mere pointing a finger of a child in the shape of a gun gets
them expelled from school. Anyone protest in front of this kids school, called a congressman about how crazy it sounds, no we just sat in front of the
tube and said how ridiculous. Our tolerance level has been raised to new levels.
My 2.5 cents, the extra .5 for the amount of typing.
