I’m no longer shocked by the extent that the government and large corporations can (and do) manipulate what Americans are allowed to see. This is just another perfect example of how ignorance can lead to massive consequences. Many people, including myself before this class, are not aware of the extent that we are being controlled and babysat by people that have no authority or permission to do so. The media doesn’t cover it, because they are all a part of the master plan and therefore they actually benefit from the lack of knowledge. Is there anything we can do to stop it or will we eventually be controlled as much as other nations that we deem oppressed dictatorships?
