I like to start off by saying that everyone is brainwashed to some degree in my opinion.
Even the most intelligent and rational of us are still somewhat indoctrinated and irrational. Whether we’re conscious of that uncomfortable fact, or not.
Yet, it’s happening all around us. The government, the media, business owners, and even our own peers we consider friends are part of the problem at times. I say sometimes, because I’m generalizing, and not everything that the government, the media, and other outlets tell us, is wrong, or poor advice.
