You hit the nail on the head, again

"Unintended brainwashing born out of ignorance."

I know that I was guilty of it. For all I know, I may still be practicing it.

I just had this insight: At some point in the process, I think Rand is going to have to throw his dad under the bus in order to get ahead. It will be like this gruesome hazing ritual. Like, "Here's your test, kid. Let's see who's side your on."

I think a lot of unintended brainwashing, born of ignorance happens all the time. I think sometimes we can see conspiracies in too many places. I think most of the time, we're dealing with simple ignorance. We live in an incredibly ignorant country.

To be mean is never excusable, but there is some merit in knowing that one is; the most irreparable of vices is to do evil out of stupidity. - C.B.
