Comment: The public has been enslaved, and seems to like it.

The public has been enslaved, and seems to like it.

The warfare/welfare state is popular. Instead of backing Ron Paul to eliminate government, many people demand more government or its evil twin in disguise, better government, and support the neocons and socialist politicians who seem to mesmerize them.

The US public suffers Stockholm Syndrome on steroids. "In psychology, Stockholm Syndrome is a term used to describe a real paradoxical psychological phenomenon wherein hostages express empathy and have positive feelings towards their captors, sometimes to the point of defending them."

If the US public ever wakes up and realizes that they are slaves and are being fleeced by the system of fascism, collusion of government and corporations to rig the economy in their own favor at the expense of the majority, we will have real revolution, one involving violence. In the interim, we will have just more pain and suffering with the slate of Stepford Candidates being spotlighted by the Stepford press.

Government controlled media and education seems to have done a good job of conditioning and numbing the minds of the masses.

"Bend over and grab your ankles" should be etched in stone at the entrance to every government building and every government office.
