2. We are manipulated and lied to incessantly.

Both parties lie to our faces. Our govermental agencies lie to our faces. Candidate lie their way through campaigns, with the help of a lying, purchased media.

And the government pours our tax dollars into incessant disinformation, smear, and propaganda campaigns aimed at us.

It is brazen to the point of being Orwellian.
