Brainwashing of a Nation
Applies not only to the US of A:

The Brainwashing of a Nation by Daniel Greenfield

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism

RE: Brainwashing of a Nation
Quote:Those three (key) elements are control, crisis and emotional resonance.

To successfully brainwash someone, you have to control their environment, force a crisis on them, and then tap into core emotions, fear, love, guilt, hate, shame, and guide them through the crisis by accepting and internalizing a new belief.

The belief can be anything, but the pseudo-religious ritual taps into an emotional core requiring them to believe that they were bad people, and that by accepting this new belief, they are now good people.

This false conversion is the essence of brainwashing and of leftist political awakening narratives.

The human mind, like the human body, adapts to a crisis with a fight-or-flight response. Brainwashing forces the mind into a flight response.

Once in flight mode, the mind can rationalize a new belief as a protective behavior that will keep it safe.

Even when, as in the case of the suspect, the new belief will actually destroy his life.
Fight or flight mode inhibits long term thinking.

In panic mode, destructive and suicidal behaviors seem like solutions because they offer an escape from unbearable chemical stresses.

And haven't the disaster porn media been doing a fine job of turning a century long climate shift into panic worthy impending and immediate doom??

As usual it works best on those "still young enough to know everything" without the foundation of experience to judge new 'beliefs' against.

By-product of the climate scam hysteria:

Young people blame climate change for their small 401(k) balances

401(k) is a retirement investment plan.

RE: Brainwashing of a Nation
There have been similar cycles of mistrust and futility with regard to the future since year dot.

It used to be the vagaries of invading warlords pre medieval times when it morphed into invading armies, then more recently our parents grew up under the shadow of what the Great Depression did to their prior generation. Our gen grew up in the shadow of nuclear holocaust, our kids gen got a taste of the GFC and their kids are getting their heads filled with climate change doomsday scenarios.

Why do we do that? There wasn't much option to avoid an invading warlord but why conjure fear out not much just to mess with little kids heads??

The Millenials and Z's are wise to mistrust financial institutions, but they aren't all toxic and they are a necessary evil as a foundation of civilization.

It's a little contradictory that the climate addicted demand that something be done about it regardless of what or whether it has any effect. "Better we do something than nothing! We have to at least try!" .. yet they don't hold that kind of optimistic view of taking steps to ensure their own future well being on the financial front.
If they're so sure there is no future then why is there a point in wasting money on climate sacrifices?

"Doing anything is better than not even trying" doesn't apply to their own future well being? Isn't that bit included in the climate mantra?

If they're so convinced that they can 'stop' climate change with other peoples' money, then why are they also convinced there's no future retirement for them to garner nest eggs to cope with?? Are they thinking at all?

The brainwashing extends to supposedly intelligent people:

Library Rejects Best Seller in Favor of Climate Alarmist Orthodoxy

Apparently in defense of climate orthodoxy, the Northland Public Library of suburban Pittsburgh has banned from its shelves a best-selling book by a nationally recognized local author.

In a May 29 letter to local author Gregory Wrightstone, library executive director Amy Steele said a committee of three librarians had “concluded your book does not meet our standards.”

The book, “Inconvenient Facts: The Science That Al Gore Doesn’t Want You To Know,” disputes claims that global warming is largely a man-made phenomenon threatening the health of people and the environment. Asserting that current temperatures are neither unusual nor unprecedented, the book describes carbon dioxide as a “miracle molecule” whose increased levels have benefitted plants and made Earth greener.

The book has received rave reviews from readers, including respected scientists.

It's heresy. You know how the faithful view that.

Charles may have been kicked in the head by a horse or bitten by a corgi when young and now believes everything he reads in the papers.

Prince Charles warns it may be too late to save the planet after challenging Trump on climate change

You can imagine how worried the Royals must be about the degradation of living standards. I'm sure climate change would be top of mind as they clamber in the Rolls, and worry about it all the way to the Palace.

Just when you thought nobody could be more stupid than the Greens, along comes UK Labour.

Labour discusses plans to bring in a 10-hour week and slash pay by 75 per cent under a radical scheme to tackle climate change

"Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell said of the document: 'This is a vital contribution to the growing debate around free time and reducing the working week.'"

So it really is only the first of April?? I wonder if he ran that past Sally Macmanus???

Does sound typically socialist though. Keep everybody equally poor and give them nothing to do and watch them all rob each other to eat. mmm sounds like a plan.
