Governments have been in the brainwashing business for decades. The majority of parents send their children to government schools. What do they think their children are going to learn besides reading, writing, and arithmetic (if they even learn these)? They’re going to learn how to learn to love the State.
It reminds me of the film Dr. Strangelove, or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964). In terms of government education, it’s How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the State.
In 1995, Eric Holder said the following to theWomen’s National Democratic Club:
“One thing that I think is clear with young people and with adults as well, is that we just have to be repetitive about this. It’s not enough to simply have a catchy ad on a Monday and then only do it every Monday. We need to do this every day of the week and just really brainwash people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way.”
Brainwashing is designed to teach falsehoods, to get someone to throw away logic, experience, and observable facts and to adopt an irrational worldview. The facts are on the side of private gun ownership. There are two ways to change this: (1) brainwash people in re-education centers (government schools) to get them to believe otherwise and (2) use force when brainwashing doesn’t work. It doesn’t hurt to have a government-supporting media on your side to propagate the State-sponsored brainwashing.
