You can't do it without controlling the flow of information.
As for how many of the sheeple will wake up and resist extermination in the end? Not enough.
everyone is basically a sheeple at some time, because they are indoctrinated since birth w/ education system and the media's control of information,
thus more and more sheeple are turned out everyday.
The internet is converting sheeple back to individualistic thinking people.
When people realize that most media is corporate marketing by writers, pundits who (for sake of keeping their well paying jobs) have become
intellectual prostitute's they start to do the research into why it is difficult to trust numerous media sources, especially those who have BIG $$
Big pharma, Big agriculture, Military industrial complex, Bankers, Politicians. Power corrupts. People lacking strong character and heart IMO
are drawn to power like flies to #, it is a sort of aphrodisiac to the mind, and govt's really do not want people who think that well. yes
seriously, they want you smart enough so you can function on your own, perhaps even excel (specialize) in a certain niche to help make others a nice
profit (you as well) , but dumb enough to fall into debt, not question their propoganda, and basically fall in line.
This does not make them evil. just human and humans when power hungry and only concerned with themselves (or those like them) are capable of truly
horrible things which are none to pleasant to entertain in the mind, which is a barrier to people getting the will to brake down a blissfully ignorant
belief system as well.
I think many "thinking people" are also sheeple like because their lives are obsesed with certain things, that doesn't allow them much free time to
question the answers. It may be their children, their hectic job, a drug habbit, sex, golf, tv, partying, shopping or a combination.
Alot of time society is structured so that free time is sucked up by these other things, and w/o the internet i would likely have been a sheeple for
A NWO type fascist world gov't may be a natural trend for power hungy elite types to salivate over, often times a violent revolution is what it takes
to buck this trend b/c , those in power will always want more. Not sure if such a selfish group could ever congeal into a cohesive group while
seeking this power, but the stage sure appears primed for a big brother, socialist world state, likely w/ "the chip" as part of the gig.
