In case you were wondering, here’s how to produce a thoroughly disoriented citizen:
- Tell him he’s superior to people from other countries, colors, religions, ideas.
- Put a gun in his hand.
- Flag-wave him to death.
- Repeat more, louder lies.
- Distract him with hard-core consumption.
- Make money his measure of all things.
- Make false promises.
- Bribe him.
- Frighten him.
- Stuff him full of nationalism and patriotism.
- Jail him.
- Shoot him.
- Isolate him.
- Sanctify his greed.
- Banalize him.
- Send his children to war.
- Re-engineer the electoral process so as to install low men in high places.
- Tell him torture is necessary.
- Feed him false philosophy, white-trash values.
- Offer him venal role models.
- Convince him that speculation is “business.”
- Convince him that if he’s not rich there’s something wrong with him.
- Fill him up with that old-time religion.
- Imprison him.
- Under educate him.
- Steal his constitutional rights.
That should do it.
