23. Yes, it would be nice if it were so black and white.

Unfortunately, the psychology of cultism doesn't work within such neatly defined parameters. If so, Jim Jones' followers would never have murdered their own children.

Also, as someone having much interaction with homeless LGBTQ+ teens, I can assure you that, sadly, not all bigoted parents of gay children are magically enlightened upon learning of their own offspring's gender identity. In fact, parental rejection is a leading cause of both homelessness and suicide within the LGBTQ+ youth community.

Finally, whether someone stops to think, i.e., whether a person bothers to determine actual cause and effect for something impacting their life, really depends on how steeped they are in the propaganda silo. If they've been listening to hate radio every day for 10-30 years, chances are, no, they won't stop and think. They already know why they're going bankrupt---it's because of whoever/whatever Rush or Sean says it's because of, end of story.
