19. Knowing voters' health issues allows targeted advertising.

For instance, people with cancer diagnoses could receive targeted fake news Facebook propaganda pieces about how much Trump cares about cancer victims. (There were videos about this all over the internet leading up to the election.) Also, these voters would be targets of fake news claiming that Hillary didn't care about cancer victims.

History of mental illness in a voter's medical records? They would be the targets of propaganda that played on their fears.

Medical records also provide lots of demographic data - ages, addresses, family histories.

All of this information was fed into algorithms that spit out propaganda targeted to the interests and vulnerabilities of specific voters. This is very sophisticated, personalized propaganda.

This is why we are unable to reason with family, friends, coworkers, and neighbors who are convinced of alternate realities. They are literally brainwashed.

If this isn't stopped, somebody - probably Putin - will literally take over the world. This is brainwashing on a global scale.
