How the Government Conditions Citizens to Obey
By The Daily Bell Staff - June 23, 2017

Can you count how many ways the government manipulates people to be the type of citizen they can easily control?

I think that would be impossible to come up with an actual number when every facet of government is dedicated to shaping the citizen in ways contrary to his or her nature.

It ranges from tax credits for having kids to increased welfare for being a single mom; from subsidies for growing corn to mandates to eradicate invasive species. The government is changing citizens’ behavior with incentives and disincentives, which destroys the natural spontaneous order society would otherwise fall into.

The government has basically turned society into a pinball machine which bounces citizens from here to there, taking away control of their destiny. And then, they use their own coercion as an example of why we need more coercion: because people cannot control their own outcomes in life!

Governments and corporations alike know that the best way to mold a person is to start in childhood.

That is why children younger than 6 are being prescribed anti-depressants by the government health care system in Great Britain. Almost 200,000 prescriptions for antidepressants are handed out to children under 18 in Great Britain, almost 13,000 of which go to kids from 7-12 and over 600 go to children under 6 years old!

Yet as disconcerting as these figures are, the UK isn’t the first country to have them. In 2009, five deaths have already been linked to antidepressants in Australian children aged 10 to 19; moreover, 89 recorded adverse reactions in children under nine were associated with antidepressants. Dr. Joe Tucci, Chief Executive of the Australian Childhood Foundation, said: “I cannot think of a good reason why any six-year-old, or younger, should be treated with antidepressants. I think it’s gone up because medication is being used to treat the symptoms and not the cause.”

The actual cause is where the story starts. Why are children so young depressed?

Coercion is arguably the leading cause of all mental health issues. In modern society, children start to feel this coercion as soon as they are born into a society shaped like a cattle pen.

Increasing suicide attempts by children are concentrated around the times when school is in session. The unnatural environment in which they are placed causes extreme stress for many children. The “well-adjusted” ones take to the authority like good sheep, and everyone else gets loaded up with drugs to make them a better citizen.

Later in life, a good citizen will take this lesson to heart. Don’t feel like you fit in? Not happy with your job, spouse, environment? Anxiety, depression, helplessness, anger over things that you cannot control because you feel forced into a life you don’t want?

Drugs. Do illegal drugs and enrich the CIA (and give the government an option to lock you up if they want), or do legal drugs and enrich the government connected pharmaceutical corporations.

It is, however, encouraging to see an increase in home-schooling in the USA, (which could actually be inadvertently fueled by forced vaccination for any children attending public school). About 40 years ago, 40 million children attended public school and under 100,000 were homeschooled. By 2005 48 million children attended public school, and a whopping 2 million were being homeschooled.

Parents who raise their kids to not blindly follow authority are doing a great service. It is tempting for parents to snap, “Because I said so!” to children, but it is better to explain why the rules are what they are whenever possible.

The kids rewarded in school are the ones best at following directions, and the teacher always hates the kid that asks why they have to do what they are told when it doesn’t make any sense. I once had to write a letter home because I didn’t wear my coat at recess. My parents responded by letting the teacher know that at the age of 12, my nerve endings had developed enough so that I could choose if a coat was necessary while running around in 50-degree temperatures for 15 minutes.

But police do the same thing to adults conditioned by the public school system.

If you get pulled over or are otherwise unfortunate enough to come into contact with the police, your life is literally in serious danger if you do not immediately and obediently follow all their orders, even when they have no legal standing to make those demands. Moving your hands out of site, asking why you are being arrested, or simply not hearing or understanding an officer are all offenses worthy of execution in the United States.

The teachers and police who expect blind obedience simply because they are an authority figure are programming the same thing into citizens: that the state must be obeyed, or there will be consequences.

And this same philosophy of shaping the citizen is seen everywhere to varying degrees and molded for different types of people. The newest trend is to police thought crimes by claiming that hate speech is not protected free speech. If you offend anyone, you have committed a crime, if you have a contrary opinion, it is fake news, if you desire any internet privacy, you are probably a terrorist.

Great Britain is especially intense on their push to socialize the citizens to behave exactly as the government wishes. The National Health Institute has been key to drugging up kids and programming the citizens to let the government choose when citizens live or die.Individuals must purchase licenses to watch television, and the government is super serious about ferreting out anyone without a license.

But without the little things, people would never have slipped to the point of letting the government decide who will get lifesaving medical procedures and who will be waitlisted to death.

One of these little things is that individuals must purchase licenses to watch television, and the British government is super serious about ferreting out anyone without a license.

Why do they make such a big deal about something so small? Because it trains the citizens to do exactly as they are told, and not bother with any pushback. It ingrains the idea that the state can and should regulate every facet of human behavior.

It is like the old marketing trick, where if you get someone used to saying yes, they will keep saying yes when you ask if they want to buy.

And of course, China has already gone full blown 1984 with their social credit system to regulate the behavior of citizens by taking away rights and extending privileges based on a citizenship score which takes into account what your neighbors think of you, what you say about the government online, and how involved in social life you are.

But the most extreme examples are only possible because for so long people have accepted the government’s authority to regulate the little things. Seatbelt laws, required permits, and even complying with the TSA for illegal searches are all ways that are more about control than keeping you safe.

That is why it is important to push back at every little rule and regulation, and question every authority. People may think you are making a big deal about nothing, but unless you push back on the little things, you will be unable to resist when it comes to the important issues.

      It is just the natural dependency mindset byproduct of collectivism!
      Mankind has forever been battling only two natural forces. Collectivism and Individualism.
      Every conceivable ideology, theology, philosophy and political movement involve these two warring factions, if you want to call them factions.
      The US is man’s beat attempt so far at building a society and a system of government who’s purpose is to protect and defend the individual human from unwarranted force from is enemies, collectivists.

      • Don Duncan

        “…battling only two natural forces.”??
        I think you mean: Debating two metaphysical views of humanity. 1. The individual as the primary unit. 2. The collective as the primary unit. But this is a false dichotomy. The collective cannot exist without the individual, but the individual can exist without the collective. Therefore the individual is primary. The collective is a collection of individuals, an abstraction, not a concrete. The individual is the concrete, not the abstraction.
        The “collective” or “common good” are abstractions that were invented to sell self sacrifice. The sacrifices are collected by the con men, for the con men. Those who recommend sacrifice fully intend to be the beneficiaries.
        The fraud takes two main forms: service to a god and service to others. Their common goal: obtain the unearned by getting others to volunteer to be used.

        You’re asking the wrong question.
        Why do you let the authorities “get away” with robbing you? (It’s all about your attitude.) Dimitri gets it.
        But there are numerous ways, if you care enough to research and put your mind to it.

        • Alan777

          The company I work for reports my income to the government, so my income is taxed by both federal and state governments . Of course, in other situations without recorded income one could avoid paying taxes.
          So how about a hint? I would love to get the right “attitude” and not pay any taxes, legally that is without risking a lifetime behind bars.

          • Col. Edward H. R. Green

            “The company I work for reports my income to the government, so my income is taxed by both federal and state governments .”

            There are ways to circumvent that.

            Asserting and defending one’s legitimate individual rights, including the right to ALL of one’s peacefully-acquired private property, necessarily involves defying laws that violate them.

            That action is inherently, inescapably risky, even fatally so. One must be crystal clear about one’s rights and have the positive self-regard to be committed enough to defend them to the death.

            If one’s statist opponents murders one, one’s murderers have one’s dead body, but not one’s obedience. One has lived and died on one’s own terms, not theirs.

            You are consenting to live by their terms, and by your fear that they are counting on to keep you “in line”, when you choose to abide by their laws that violate your rights.

            Your continued consent is the foundation of their “power” over you and your property.

            Grow a pair, take your life and your right to be self-owning and self-governing, and to keep all of your wealth, and your liberty to exercise all of your other legitimate individual rights, by withdrawing your consent.

            For further elaboration, read “Discourse on Voluntary Servitude” by Etienne de la Boetie.

          • Alan777

            Thanks for that but I prefer to just live and support my family without becoming a martyr. I do agree with you in principle but I tend to be a practical person and solve problems within the constraints of society and government. Of course, not to say that I don’t have limits if the government becomes too draconian.

          • Pedro

            Research the US Code and find out if signing a W’4 is required by it. You will also remember that all these forms are signed under penalty of perjury. If you have signed these forms without indicating it was done under duress or coercion then you have provided evidence against yourself that you are liable for the income tax. The banksters are very proud of their system of “voluntary compliance” and the courts and judges go right along with the charade. All done under color of law.

      • Col. Edward H. R. Green

        Whay do you “think” he has no right to “get away” without paying taxes ?

        • Alan777

          Your reading comprehension needs some work. I only asked how. I’m forced to do a lot of things simply because I don’t want to end up in prison. I certainly don’t think it’s right or that the government has the right.

          • Col. Edward H. R. Green

            I fully comprehended your question. I answered it by first challenging and refuting the fundamental premise implicit in it.

            Once one grasps the fact that no one, including those in government, has a “right” to rob one of any amount of one’s money or other wealth, that legalized theft is theft nonetheless, one can resolutely formulate the means–the “how”–by which one protects it from theft.

          • Alan777

            Okay. I’m many many years past ever believing the government has the right to its theft.

          • Pedro

            Imagine, first, that you did not volunteer, under penalty of perjury no less, to be a taxpayer. No W-4, no liability under the private collection agency. That is one place to start.

      • collette.robert@yahoo.com

        Shhhhhhhh

        • Alan777

          Got it…

      • Pedro

        Ever read the Supreme Court rulings on the 16th Amendment? In short part the ruling stated that this amendment granted no new powers of taxation to the government. Let that sink in for a good long time.

    How could you miss Gay Marriage? Given homosexual promiscuity, gay marriage is an oxymoron.
    You don’t really think it was about marriage do you? Hell no. It was about forcing submission and compliance. Complain and you are a bigot.
    And before the paint was even dry on that one, allowing men who think they are women to use the ladies room.
    It is a barrage of liberal pet peeves designed to force compliance and submission. They’ve been doing it in Europe longer than here because of those warlike Germans.
    They now have a meek, submissive population – with women in most (yes most) Defense Minister positions. So meek that they will allow themselves to be overrun by muslims and Africans.

    Fear is a tool of politicians. Fear of marijuana. Fear of guns. Just tell the people they are in danger.

    Of
    course the people don’t want war. Why should some poor slob on a farm want to
    risk his life in a war when the best he can get out of it is to come back to
    his farm in one piece? Naturally, the common people don’t want war: neither in
    Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But
    after all it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it is
    always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or
    a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship . . .
    Voice or no voice, the
    people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All
    you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the
    pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. (at
    the Nuremberg Trials, shortly before being sentenced to death) – Hermann Göring

    • Danny B

      Off-topic but, related to the trials in Nurnberg, Germany. The allies initiated the bombing of civilian populations.
      http://www.westernspring.co.uk/who-started-the-bombing-of-civilians-in-world-war-ii/
      It naturally follows that the allies were responsible for killing a LOT of Germans, including German jews. The American bombers were specifically designed to cause civilian casualties.
      http://rense.com/general81/germm.htm
      Those people sitting across the tables from the German criminals were far more guilty. It wasn’t Hitler who created the fire-bombing of Dresden. The Anglo-Americans were the major criminals BUT, they won because of the huge economic base of America. They got to write the history books. The Anglo-Americans were responsible for most of the jews killed in Germany. This great “blot” was handily shifted onto the Germans.
      The 6 million has been reduced to a more plausible 1 million. Germany had to pay inexhaustible reparations for the crimes of the Anglo-Saxons. The Germans lost the war at St. Petersburg. This was very fortunate for the allies.
      The “education” system inculcates the “winners” on how exceptional they are.

      • jackw97224

        I read that the first bombing of a city occurred when a German bomber got off course and dropped its bombs by “accident.” Do you have information on this?
        Churchill in response intentionally attacked Berlin. Yes, Dresden is a legacy of condemnation on Churchill. Slaughterhouse No. 5 is a reminder that American prisoners of war were murdered/killed in the raid on Dresden.
        I agree the allies were guilty of lots of crimes and whitewashed themselves by condemning NAZIs while not simultaneously accepting some responsibilities.
        Demographics were against the Nazis and Japan from the beginning. For sure the economic might of the US precluded any chance for Germany and Japan to succeed. Indeed, both parties failed to understand Sun Tzu’s rules of war and the advice of Carl von Clausewitz. Even if they had followed those rules, it would not have ended well for them as attrition would have held sway, though the war might have lasted much longer and maybe, just maybe AH would have died and cooler heads could have prevailed.
        No sure about allied bombing being the cause of most Jew deaths in WW II.
        Yes, I have read that the 6 million figure has been refigured or reestimated to something in the neighborhood of 1 million, especially since the placard in front of Auschwitz have been recut to show a decrease in the number of people who died there.
        The war was not lost at St. Petersburg, IMHO of course. The war was lost from the beginning as it was a crime and was destined to be punished. And then the leaders failed to follow Sun Tzu’s rules of war and thus were doomed. It is almost though there was some natural “law” at work.
        Yes, the government schools are part of the system of propaganda, indoctrination and brainwashing along with the politicians and the MSM. We don’t need political government as it is based on violence/aggression. We need to terminate political government and try organizational government based on voluntary contracts.
        Regards.

        • Col. Edward H. R. Green

          Indubitably, Allied soldiers initiated willful violence against peaceful Germans trapped in the Reich, so they are as culpable as the Nazis in that regard. However, it was difficult, especially at high altitudes, to target-bomb a city so as to kill just Nazis as German civilian soldiers mixed with uniformed Nazi soldiers, and they both used the civilians as cannon fodder.

          Speaking only for myself, if I were an anti-Nazi German trapped in the Reich, I would welcome those bombs, even though they would destroy me. I suspect that I would not have been the only one.

          As for the Holocaust, indubitably, it did occur. Whatever the actual number of its victims might have been, it is that number too many.

    The whole message in the article is to me, the way I’m perceiving it, is the fact that statism’ is a cult. Statism is the most dangerous cult in existence because it indoctrinates the subject/citizen into peak obedience, a classic characteristic of a cult and which is not a virtue as we are taught to believe.

    This is precisely why people don’t think for themselves. Instead they are told what to think. The media is responsible for much of the way that people believe and train of thought. The media in America became state run in 2012. How many sheep/people know this? Almost none. Citizens do not realize that their supposed reality is shrewdly imposed upon them without them even knowing it. The USA citizens have reached ‘Peak Obedience’.

  • Spanky Lee

    Everything you say—all of it—is true. But the sort of freedom for which you advocate is not the kind of freedom for which we can legislate. Else what do we have: rules against having certain rules?

    Rather the freedom you argue for is personal and intellectual and is the sole outcome of a REAL education. The power to think clearly and on one’s own coupled to the DUTY to think clearly and on one’s own—that is the ephemeral product of real human teaching. You’re actually doing that sort of teaching right here…right now…

    There IS hope but it exists only as precious and rare embers of light scattered around a dark world and held in the hearts and in the minds of humans who have dedicated themselves to true knowledge. They aren’t easy to find, these embers, these people, but with the right sort of eyes and with a lot of luck… here is one now. You have earned my respect.

        Bastiat’s observations about that which is seen and unseen is at work in a conversation.

        One sees the receptive reaction on the face of a person with whom one engages in one’s arguments in defense of freedom and liberty. The positive influence that one’s listener chose to allow one’s words to have on him or her will be unseen if one never sees that person again. In that absence, all one can do is hope that that person took one’s defense to heart and influenced others to take it up, live it, and pass it further on.

        You have the right to keep and bear firearms, any kind of firearms, including elephant guns. Being prepared to take them down when they come at you to trample you and your family and wealth is your responsibility, and your right.

            Since your hands are not government property, you do not require permission from government employees in any form, including registration, to use them in self defense.

            As for most of Europe, if whatever country therein is your native one, or your chosen residence as an expat, it is your responsibility–not mine as a non-resident or citizen-to defy its gun control laws by asserting and physically defending your right to keep and bear firearms. Look what happened in Germany after Hitler became Chancellor and outlawed civilian ownership of firearms.

  • Aided by a religious cadre that teaches Romans 13:1-7 dictates Christians are obligated to obey secular government, when, in fact, Romans 13 has NOTHING to do with secular government.

    See blog series “Ten Reasons Why Romans 13 is Not About Secular Government,” beginning at http://www.constitutionmythbusters.org/ten-reasons-why-romans-13-is-not-about-secular-government-pt-1/.

    The one word “continually” in Verse 6 (amplifying upon Verses 3-4) alone demonstrates that Romans 13 is not about secular but biblical civil government, such as was established here in 17th-century Colonial America. This is Reason #6 in the list of ten reasons.

    Here in Germany you must also have a TV license even if you have no TV, which I don’t. They say you can watch it online. As a self-employed person who uses the car mostly for work I also have to pay for an extra Radio license.

    How does one escape the Keynesian Collective. There are people who do not or are programmed to not like freedom and liberty.

    East/West German unification is a good example, the East Germans were all for it, till they realized they were going to lose the perks of the Communist Collective and they had to become productive to make what they perceived are the riches of the West. The poor East Germans got over their dislike, but did not realize they gave up one collective for another collective that used a different form of collectivist slavery. One collection is a gilded cage and one is cesspool with iron bars.

    So, how do you escape, it’s in the mind. Getting people to understand all individuals have a ‘Natural Right’ of ‘Self-Ownership’ no one owns you. Good news is, the Keynesian Collective is going to collapse like the Communist Collective collapsed.

    Be prepared to be free and liberated and start learning how to govern yourself and you’re own behavior, if you do not, you probably will not survive.!!!

  • Common Sense

    Sadly, many will not like my perception of this complicated topic, but in my mind, things have progressed so far from our apathy, ignorance and or cowardice that one of only two things will be the end of the tyranny and corruption.
    1) The people unite and refuse to follow or enable the corrupt system to continue.
    ( This means the majority of people acting as one). I would like to be optimistic and say this will happen but I am more of a realist than optimist. The only thing we have proven we are united on is hating someone or thing, or shopping ( maybe cellphone use. We are very united on that, but it seems to only increase our separation. Ironic, isn’t it.)
    2) The continued corruption will continue until it eventually destroys itself from the detrimental and non sustainable methods it uses. Think of Rome.

      30% of the American public at the time supported a separation from the British Empire. It does not take everyone, just a few committed ones.

      You mean the current rulers?

    • dauden

      Or you could believe the King James Bible, rightly divide it, and know what God is doing in the world today. He is saving all who would merely trust Him in his finished work at the cross and has promised a heavenly inheritance far greater than one can even imagine. You want to go live on the moon? Mars? Go to some alien planet? Ha! More lies. “Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered to the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him”, I Cor 2:9, KJV-only.

    Government is the only scam that is even bigger and deadlier than religion is.

    Think about it: A virgin female who got pregnant?!? AND gave birth? Um, yeah, right, sure. It never happened.

    • Mutt

      Just like you’re dupped by your goverment, you are being dupped by satan. Keep believing there is no God, keep trying to tell yourself Jesus is fake. You get many chances here on earth to repent of your wickedness, but you won’t get another chance after ya exhale your last breath……………………..

      • Hank Henry

        And your comments will certainly encourage him to follow your advice. It is His kindness that leads to repentance.
        BTW if God had not been kind to you, you would know nothing of Him. Oh wait, perhaps that’s the problem. You claim to know Him but if you really did you would know that His love and kindness are without bounds. No one comes to the Kingdom unless the Father draws them.
        I hear nothing of Him in you. I certainly hope and pray that you will repent of your hatred of sinners, even though I am sure you would like to think you actually merely hate sin.
        He died for all. There is not one who deserves more than another. At the foot of the cross every person’s heart is black. You obviously don’t believe that or you would understand sinners and love them as Yeshua did. He was a friend to sinners. that is my desire as well.

        • dauden

          “He died for all”……. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;

          4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: I Cor 15:3-4 KJV

          This is the gospel of salvation revealed to the Apostle Paul for the world today. It is not the gospel of the Kingdom that Jesus and the disciples preached during the earthly ministry of Christ to the Jews only. Different dispensation, different gospel, different inheritance.

          “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, RIGHTLY DIVIDING the word of truth, 2 Tim 2:15 KJV.

      Thank you for the link. Very useful and interesting. The justice system is definitely set up to control behavior and to engineer a society of complacency.

  • Synickel

    Excellent article.

  • David McElroy

    YES! We must push back! America is no longer governed as nation based on a coherent structure of law limiting government and protecting the public from official encroachments. Corrupt psychopaths openly rule with total immunity and hubris, robbing, trampling, and killing people daily. Common sense no longer exists in government, nor any concern for justice or well being of the people. We are afforded none of our enumerated rights any time a lowly government goon decides we are to be deprived of them. Brute force imposing arbitrary and often illegal “official” actions are the nature of the rule we suffer. Push back!

      Once you recognize and call them out, moral imbeciles (psychopaths) fade away

  • northernraven

    This is hardly new, and it’s not just government. The aim of every facet of almost
    every organization in modern human life is control. The underlying objective of
    public education, law, sports, entertainment, religion, mass media, social media,
    marriage, and every social group from quilting bees to the Boy Scouts is
    controlling us.

    Once we understand this, then we can, to a degree, chart our own course within these institutions by pretending to go along while not rocking the boat too much to attract unwanted attention.

    • collette.robert@yahoo.com

      Rock the boat don’t tip the boat over

  • Kernel01

    So when will it be mandatory for EVERYONE to own a smartphone, to where all of your personal data is stored along with your current location data, and the Government can freely access it without your permission just for the sake of “control”? It’s moving that way. And maybe we can then vote by phone over Facetime to control vote fraud?

  • no republycon

    You should always question authority, and a prime example of NOT questioning authority was President Trump sitting at a table and going around the room having his minions kiss his fat orange B-HIND. This is a perfect disgusting display of how a blow hard bully works his will against SYCOPHANTS or the easier term SUCK UPS. When will the former Republican party get some courage and stand up for the rule of law and rid the country of this parasite who is using the office of the Presidency for his family business. When will people realize that the REPUBLYCON party has been doing everything they can to diminish the freedoms Americans have fought and died for, they suppress the vote they pull one dirty trick after another. If you don’t believe me look at the history of Republican Presidents, the last honest one was Eisenhower. Look at the investigations into corruption and influence peddling and the REPUBLYCONS win that figure hands down. So now all you red meat idiot REPUBLYCON’S can babble on about the Clinton impeachment, well he paid for his infidelity and no one died for his actions in comparison to the mountain of lies and people around the world who died from REPUBLYCON LIES !

    When I was in first grade, my teacher sent home a note criticizing me because I didn’t color within the lines in a coloring book exercise. Fortunately, my mother stood up for me and essentially told the teacher where she could go. Looking back, this planted in me a powerful message that just because an authority figure asserted something, didn’t mean it was right.

    Thanks, Mom. Because I’m having to think more critically than ever these days.

  • Don Duncan

    “…unless you push back on the little things…”
    Yes, in principle there are no “little rights” or small infringements on liberty. And principle matters, in fact, it is the most important concept in morality. The first steps people take to confuse and disarm intellectually are seemingly insignificant. Then they evade or deflect objections with “In theory you are correct, but practically speaking…”
    Translation: “Yes the principle was violated, but this exception is practical, and abstract theory (principle) is not. Consistency is impractical. To live we need to be flexible, and reinvent morality as society changes.” Reinvent is code for “interpret to benefit me, at your expense.” Being consistent would require being fair, just, and living by the same rules. TPTB (authorities) make, enforce, and judge others without accountability, i.e., the rules don’t apply to the rulers.

  • jacob

    A while back I read quotes from Congressmen increasingly alarmed over the effect of the internet. They recognized how the internet interferes with their ability to control what people think, and hence their ability to rule. Astonishing that they even have this concern !!! George Carlin was right, tney don’t care about you. They just want your votes.

    People are communicating more exponentially, and rulers are justifiably scared. It seems obvious why Western governments are struggling to import Muslim hordes. Muslims are insular and refuse to integrate into secular society, a perfect divide and conquer strategy that facilitates easier government rule. Together with widespread political correctness campaigns, you have a great recipe for tyranny. Rulers are taking their gloves off. Germany is a test laboratory. Hopefully common perceptions of government will change from “bad or good, of course we need government” to government is just societal scale gang business. People are perfectly capable of forming uoluntary associations to manage their common affairs. It’s a great accomplishment waking up from cradle to grave propaganda.
