I think the way to realize these control mechanisms is to really step outside of society and look at it very objectively. I truly wish more people would notice and fully absorb these observations. To me, these factors are reason enough for revolution. People need to get their heads out of the brainwash box (television). When kids are brought up watching these idiotic television shows, it is no wonder they grow up to be drones.
I believe it has a lot to do with the lack of original thought. Original thought is not encouraged by the majority of parents and it is stifled in the public school system. . Now adays thinking differently than the average clone gets you cast aside.
It would be wonderful to see a world of people who thought outside the box. But individualism is not encouraged and humans tend to follow the crowd. The few of us who don't follow the crowd end up disappointed by the rest, but it is said we are the types who are more apt to make a change in the world.
Oppression is rampant in this society. I try to shut it down at all times.

That was a great thread you started. Again, I am saddened to see that the discussion has not taken off right away like some of the more popular topics on ATS.
I have been trying to come up with ways to change everything for a while now. But it is hard to get people informed when they are stuck in cyber space. The masses are watching their news on television, which is the last place they would truly learn about what is happening to them. Being a college student, I have found that the majority of my peers are not even willing to discuss these matters. They would rather waste their lives watching and arguing about sports and tv shows. I want to discuss big things ie.. changing the world, revolution, ending mental slavery and finding a better way of living.

Its not that some of us dont care. Its more to the point that there isnt a thing we can do to stop it(save full revolution). Im not sure about you guys but other than writing my reps(which I do all the time) and speaking up; there isnt a whole hell of alot that we CAN do. I feel helpless and alone alot of the time(in matters such as these) Noone around where I live(Fl Keys) seems to give a rats ass. We are definately the minority.
Ill take a quote from Bob Marley "And it seems like total destruction is the only solution" now if someone as positive as Bob Marley would say such a thing(back in 1970') I always try to keep the hope within myself alive but, the follies of man always seem to taint it. I dont want total destruction but like Bob said "is the only solution. Its too big and to intertwined and we wouldnt even know where to begin.
