Face it, unless IQ's suddenly rise, all of this will go ahead because people ARE too stupid to realise what is going on. Ask most people on the street what they "think" and they'll spiel off exactly what they've been "fed" on the "news" (I really like to use "quotes" lol)
That's not thought at all. Where's the thinking in that? What reading are these people doing? None I bet but when pressed, they'll shout out that they "know" what they're talking about when in fact they know nothing.
I don't see that changing. Do you?
