Westerners are being deceived by coordinated disinformation and propaganda campaigns! The typical Westerner is highly narcissistic thinking the world revolves around them and their Western nation is uneducated and thinks a 4-year undergraduate degree makes them an expert on any given subject, is uncritical in their thinking and is easily controlled and deceived, and is intellectually lazy preferring to accept the narrative they are spoon-fed, rather than thinking for themselves! They are brainwashed from kindergarten through university! They are brainwashed by the mainstream media, by their unthinking parents, by their churches, and by their governments! Doublethink and cognitive dissonance rule the day.
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”Nazi master of propaganda Joseph Goebbels
