Some things haven't changed

In light of the political hullabaloo over recent months, I think it is important to reflect upon the past and see things haven't changed much. So many times I have seen political cartoons and essays posted on ATS that could have come from yesterday's papers (or CNN report). I submit another example for amusement and consideration and ask this.. if nothing ever changes, are we insane for doing it over and over?





Signs
Signs are lost
Signs disappeared
Turn invisible
Got no sign
Somebody got busted
Got a face of stone
And a ghostwritten biography
Dogs start to run in,
Hungry for some food
Dogs start a-twitching
And they're looking at you
It was light
By five
Torn all apart
All in the name of democracy
He's hurt
He's dying
Claimed he was a terrorist
Claimed to avert a catastrophe
Someone should'a told him
That the buck stops here
No one ever said
That he was involved with thieves
And they're blind, blind
blind, blind, blind, blind, blind
blind, blind
blind, blind, blind, blind, blind

No sense of harmony, No sense of
time, Don't mention harmony, Say:
What is it? What is it? What is it? Give
a little shock, and he raises his hand
Somebody shouts out, says: What is
it? What is it? What is it?
He was shot down in the night! Peop-
ple ride by but his body's still alive
The girl in the window what has she
done? She looks down at me ...
says: "I don't want to die!"

And I'm blind, blind
blind, blind, blind, blind, blind
blind, blind
blind, blind, blind, blind, blind
Somebody could have told us where they go
Crawling all around looking for foot, foot, footprints
Now tell me what the Hell have we become?
Some dirty little bastards What the Hell is going on?u
No sense of harmony, No sense of
time, Don't mention harmony, Say:
What is it? What is it? What is it? Give
a little shock, and he raises his hand
Somebody shouts out, says: What is
it? What is it? What is it?
He was shot down in the night! Peop-
ple ride by but his body's still alive
The girl in the window what has she
done? She looks down at me ...
says: "I don't want to die!"

They're blind and they're blind
blind, blind, blind, blind, blind
blind, blind
blind, blind, blind, blind, blind
blind, blind
blind, blind, blind, blind, blind
blind, blind
blind, blind, blind, blind, blind

In a way, yes. I think it is very indicitive as to how powerful the fear of the unkown is to people. People would rather have business as usual than to try something they never have before for the sake of changing things into the better.

They may not like the way things are now, but they're familiar, and that trumps the unknown even though is can't be anything BUT better.

It's illogical at best, and insane at worst.

Indeed fear is a great motivator.... Fear of the unknown being one of the most popular to exploite. And all you have to do is scare the masses and tell them that you will keep them safe. If you are smooth talking enough and offer either hope, prosperity, or someone else to hate, then you're a shoo in.

Maybe I should become a political advisor?

Yeah, maybe you should!

But....

Do you think that social manipulation and engineering, propaganda, subliminal influence, neuro linguistic programming, media influence, Malthusian theory and drug thought control haven't been researched to the inth degree by rooms full of academics, black op types, and people so scary you can't even imagine their psychological profile.

Nothing is as it seems when viewed from the obvious!!

In fact, I have looked into a lot of that... Social Engineering makes me ill... I won't deny that it is a fact of life.. I just dislike it a lot.
