Fug it, you deserve your subjugation

You've been letting the ptb systematically dim your lights since 9/11. At this point it looks like you'll gladly surrender your rights and dignity if they tell you it's in your interest. But RAWR Greenwald! RAWR Snowden!... RAWRRRRR!

4. True

It's too bad this otherwise exellent board can be swarmed and dominated by a handfull of operatives and trolls.

5. DU suggests that

the propaganda machine, like the government's spying infrastructure, is reaching a level of depth, interactivity, and microscopic invasiveness consistent with the deep pockets of the corporatists and the authoritarian state. We live in a creepy new reality in which Americans who believe they are merely having political conversations on the internet meet immediate, relentless, swarming, and manipulative pushback to any criticism they might level at the Powers That Be.

There is an entire machine in place to manufacture the illusion that Americans welcome what is being done to us and have contempt for those who would disrupt it.

It is creepy as hell, and, when combined with awareness of the metastasizing spying and police state infrastructure, truly chilling.

8. Pretty well sums it up. They will have your subjugation, while every one of them imagines

 

that they will be the exception.
