I think the only people who don't know are the same people who throughout history will be dumb enough to believe anything. Any "probe" will be followed with absolutely nothing but political stances and opportunities for further corrupt payoffs, marketing and cronyism.

I've noticed a lot of people lately who are fully aware of what a load of lies the media is, there is no surprise. It's been posted here on this site that the media is controlled by 5 corporations, down from 50 just 10 years ago. That's pretty easy to manipulate a market that small.

2. In this kind of game ...
You need to know who will be the potential Brown Shirts, don't ya' see?

Why not play it all the way when you have a pervasive media to do it with it? Find out who is going to follow the program and, perhaps, enlist them to provide some muscle when the time comes to enforce the more overt aspects of the agenda when things fall apart. Willing volunteers who will blindly enforce policy? I don't know, how many do you need?

Ah, that's never happened historically yet, has it? ;)
