Yes, and no.

It's kind of an 'apples to oranges' comparison - citizens of both nations are pretty much 100% brainwashed. I, for example, am an American, and I am completely convinced that individual liberty is the way to go, and that our ruling class are 100% criminal either by commission or consent. I know this and it will always be that way. For that reason it would be fair to call me 'brainwashed'.

It was probably the pandas.
