America is the hands down winner in the propoganda wars. you'll have to admit. No country in recorded history has had as much time to indoctrinater it's citizens so powerfully. Even the former Soviet Union is a distant second.
And it's Soo easy to recognize someone who's been brainwashed. Knee jerk reactions using stock phrases to replace critical thinking.. such as "they're just commies" or "they hate us because they're just jealous of our freedom" or "if they don't have our idea of 'democracy' they're just dictators". Perhaps the reason americans submit to religious cults so easily is because they've already been conditioned into brainwashing all their lives at home and in school
