A very interesting perspective.
Most people believe those in power ONLY keep us in the dark, this proposes that from time to time, we are given a "peek" at the corruption, hypocrisy and even the criminality of our leaders, in order to demoralize us and desensitize us to the very fact that it's happening.

Makes you wonder.

How many times each day do we hear about something our government or leaders have done that we all know is wrong or corrupt, and the reply that we give, or that we hear from others is.......

"Doesn't surprise me".

Maybe this is why nothing surprises us anymore with regard to the garbage leadership we receive and the corruption that they all seem to be lining their pockets with.

Just maybe, huh.

Can people become so broken that truths of how they are being screwed do not “set them free” but instead further demoralize them?

YES. It is called the “abuse syndrome.” How do abusive pimps, spouses, bosses, corporations, and governments stay in control? They shove lies, emotional and physical abuses, and injustices in their victims’ faces, and when victims are afraid to exit from these relationships, they get weaker; and so the abuser then makes their victims eat even more lies, abuses, and injustices, resulting in victims even weaker as they remain in these relationships.

When people become broken, they cannot act on truths of injustice. Furthermore, when people have become broken, more truths about how they have been victimized can lead to shame about how they have allowed it. And shame, like fear, is one more psychological way we become even more broken.

This is a very interesting read, check it out.

The same applies for every country in the world, not just the US. But the thing about the US is that usually it goes on for so long that people eventually wake up and fight back. It just might take a long time to do so.

How often do you here stories like this about the women that has been in an abusive relationship for decades then one day the abuser ends up dead. Eventually people have enough and stand up.
