Most of our nation’s young people under the age of 30 are the products of some form of government control. They enjoyed free meals at schools, health care, education, housing, etc. The expected requirement of their acceptance was to obey teachers and school administrators. The punishment that followed, if they deviated from the official dogma, was to be ostracized and shamed. Through the collectivization of their thought process, they needed to only to know what was taught to them and to ignore what they learn outside the school environment from their parents, friends, relatives and Fox News. Attempts at original thought was/is discouraged.
Schools can’t proceed as they do without the political and financial support of politicians; the very ones, the “Establishment Elites,” we are fighting today. It is they who organize the standard dumb-down curriculum to ensure implementation of their socialist ideas without comment. All propaganda and brainwashing. Don’t dare show up with a MAGA hat.
Unobstructed, politicians know that the more they lie the more we tend to believe them and become more dependent on them. Without the constant barrage of propaganda, our attention span would decline and they’ed lose control over our actions. The present predicament of the Progressive sneaked up on ‘em and their supporters in the elections of 2012, 2014 and 2016. The Democrat Elites lost control because they believed their own nonsense and didn’t see the Trump tidal wave coming. We see it often enough when we recognize otherwise smart folks acting contrary to their own best interests without a second thought. That’s the power of propaganda but, it must be a continuous daily drumming on the listeners senses if it is to stick!
Trump, like a breeze of fresh air, beyond all possible reasoning of media ‘pundents,’ confronted them with a serious challenge to their belief system and their minds closed tight, because, without a script or a firm belief that their dumbing down of the populous has really worked, they don’t know what to do. Witness Sen. Elizabeth Warren, the Indian Princess. Her defense of her Pocahontas DNA tests was a fraud. That wee drop of native blood she say’s she has comes from South America, from an illegal no doubt. Trump trolled her and, like a slippery fish bent on absolution, she rose to the bait and now looks like a complete fool. It’s exactly the same for silly Hillary who thinks she and Bill can tour the country, at $1000.00 a head, and draw the big crowds like Trump does.
When challenged, progressives immediately go into avoidance behavior. They scream, holler or ’PooPoo’ the challenge as a “Vast Right-Wing conspiracy,” label it as stupid and unworkable and move on to the next subject threatening dire punishment for any who dare question their truth.
Alinskites know that organized and sophisticated propaganda operates outside the normal level of intelligence. So, without some reason to ask questions, as many intelligent people don’t, they accept the lies and myths the same as the mass general population. Repeated often enough, the propaganda then becomes conventional wisdom because, we rarely accept challenges to conventional wisdom. Once belittled, it’s never considered again. Here is where they ignore facts even when those facts support contrary knowledge, and embrace “stupid.”
When do myths, used to persuade people, become dangerous? When the people accept them as ‘benefits. That’s the power of propaganda. Losing an illusion actually makes us wiser than finding a truth.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em!
