18. The hive mind at work
It is high time that we realize that what we are fighting against is indeed brainwashing pure and simple . I have visited and read the postings on DU for two years now and find it a great relief that there are others in this land applying critical thought to the situation we find ourselves in. The sad truth is that many in America are under the influence of a very well funded and well researched brand of thought control. the various media are the portals which convey the messages that the power elite need to control arguements that we engage in.
Here is a link to some thoughtful insight on this "hive mind" mentality:

Just let me say that it is important to realize that the machine in the living room or bedroom is more than it appears.
