There are young people that think the moon landing was fake. Not so much because of the conspiracies but because there is no way the US could ever do anything that big and groundbreaking in their minds. They've never seen different so why would they believe otherwise?
You mean that just because something doesn't seem possible now doesn't mean it is never possible? I suppose that is a fair point. The biggest cause of discouragement for me isn't the politicians we have now, or the way our government is structured or anything; theoretically all that could be changed. The thing is for any of that to change, people have to want it to chane and basically so many people are so invested in propaganda by this point that they don't want it to change. They think we're already the greatest, or we were the greatest and just put a bad man in charge of everything, and now that he's out we can go back to being the greatest. If you're the greatest and nobody could possibly be greater than you, what is the incentive to change? I mean look at how many people gobbled up the talk about "norms" as part of the act of "resistance". People are too gullible and fall for manipulation too easily. Given the money and resources and the disposal of people in power, the various public relations armies they employ can manufacture consent to so many things.
Look at this Havana syndrome bullshit. It's like Iraqi WMDs all over again. There's a Canadian report indicating it probably comes from pesticides Cuba is using to fight the Zika virus, but that will get buried just like the reports that Iraq wasn't actually trying to obtain yellowcake from Nigeria got buried.
To employ an overused metaphor (especially by dipshits), too many people love that blue pill. It's not a one way thing.. people aren't forcing them to believe the bullshit, it's the choice people want to make. That is the chief source of my morale difficulties. The red pill just requires a lot of courage most people don't have (the idiots who like to primp about how "alpha" they are [or obsessively aspire to be "alpha"] least of all, ironically enough ).
