157. It's fear propaganda when you compare the % of violent crime; murder, rape robbery programs
telecast on a daily basis by the television networks as compared to the actual crime rate % of the general population.

The % of violent crime programming is much greater and I believe distorts the American People's perception by magnifying fear and subliminally works to criminalize the people.

Furthermore I believe the brainwash programming works to become a self-fulfilling prophecy as fear and distrust become the focal points, punitive, draconian punishment becomes more politically palatable in such an environment and prisons serve as teaching schools of crime, if you're not a hardened criminal when you go in, you're more likely to be one when you come out.
