This is the board for you if you wish to discuss or explore conspiracies of any kind, historical or current.
It's an interesting question. It's easy to blame the government, high tech companies and foreign governments as makes of this vast conspiracy to control people. Why the need for all the control? So the people will vote for the corrupt politicians, so they can continue their lavish DC lifestyle - parties, private schools for their kids, trophy homes, oh, and all that money flowing in! Same with the companies. But at what point are the people themselves to blame for losing their freedom? Did they not give it up voluntarily? They wanted to be liked by their peers and fit in. They listened to that cult of personality professor who filled them up with all the commie ideas, while laughing behind their backs. I'm just rambling, and have drunk, but you have to admit it is hard to have sympathy for a generation that lets their smart phones control them and can't even tell a good pop song from a bad one. Rap that all you gen whatevers. . .
