This is correct, and propagandists know this. Rather than admit that they have been duped, the consumer is fed a new lie that distracts him from the one that he is starting to notice.
And masses of people are often fed a scapegoat that they can hate, and this scapegoat means that no other cause of the problem is sought.
What I trust greatly are the real experiences with the current system people actually experience in their lifetimes.
Suburbia, car-enclosure, and mass media obsessions, all kill the sharing of actual experiences between people (a.k.a. "community")
Many don't know what socialism is or capitalism really either....they live the reality of fraud, being lied to, money disappearing and prices shooting up and corruption, violence, etc. They are an issue-based society. And they respond to the realities they live. In THAT I confide in.
Scapegoats are important for the oligarchs in this case. Christianity and other religions provide "demon" texts that can be easily used to scapegoat other cultures.
The USA is another can of worms Q. Over there the brainwashing is so so bad? That to undo that damage? Is going to take some heavy-duty conversations for decades and restructuring of public and private education kindergarten through university studies. The USA has some serious manipulation of the worst sort. Only by leaving do, you get a decent perspective. Really.
It's not just the USA. It's most of the wealthy all around the world who gladly "believe" the lies they are fed. Because they feel more successful than the average, many hyper-consumers feel that they have a duty to believe and promote the oligarch's lies.
Things people notice when they leave the USA for years:
I think this is what happened to me. When I was a teen, I spent three summers with a French family in France, and came back with a diminished opinion of the "rich suburb" I lived in.
When I tried to share the "improvements" I had noticed there (kids can walk to all activities, people talk to people while walking, there were few cars and no traffic, family traditions like long-dinners, education and social sophistication were valued, etc.), my family looked away from the TV for a minute just to role their eyes.
And this suburban-TV-isolated-consumerist-materialist-dumb
... has been promoted as "the way to live" for decades all over the world.REASONS AMERICA IS DUMB
the primary function of nobility is the telling of noble liesTM
