The most propagandized populations are those found in US. I can attest to this firsthand. British are just assholes and willfully arrogant. Americans are simply ignorant of what others think.
I don't often necessarily agree nor disagree with Igor. I mean, not to say I frequently disagree with him, but he can got on his reactionary/trolling ticks.
I agree with him a lot in this thread.
Just my opinion, and I am not the all knower of things, and am frequently capable of being wrong, just my opinion.
Most Chinese are probably in a bubble of sorts, and very many Chinese can be distastefully jingoistic.
Americans though, are a bit like Igor has described.
A lot of great people in America though, a lot of great people in China, frankly a lot of great people all over.
That is part of the tragedy of politics and nationalism.
Much of it is really all about dividing people for political reasons, not divide and conquer per se, often it's the fostering of tribalism bullshit.
