    Good post ian. Took me back to being gobsmacked when I first learned of the Milgram experiment years ago. Incredibly, they do walk among us.

    5 mins. The Milgram Experiment.

      Indeed emm, I even saw a video once where, in a dentists waiting room, a bell would ring every so often, and when it rang four of the supposed patients, (actors), stood up till it stopped. Nearly everyone followed suit, as the receptionist and other staff acted as if it was normal. All you need is a Judas goat to lead the rest to their doom.

    Torture can be made to seem normal. Old fashioned schooling was a case in point. People copy and don’t want to be the odd one out. It makes us so easy to manipulate and control. Just had a conversation with my sister about how lucky Nicaragua is, she was saying, having been gifted vaccines. I just keep quiet. Killing was never so sweetly done. If I spoke out and suggested Nicaragua’s caring socialist regime was cooperating with the reduction of its population, I would be heavily poo-pooed. I still find it incredible, but highly educated people have the most closed minds of anyone. Their incomes depend upon it.
