Changing The Hearts and Minds Of the People

Changing Hearts and Minds

Many people believe there is some sort of grand conspiracy involving individuals who are bent on destroying this country by turning it into a Socialist or even worse a Marxist country. I guess in the grand scheme of things one could call it a conspiracy, however, even though certain individuals have been trying to accomplish that for decades, there is no conspiracy as such.

Neither is it just a coincidence. The truth is that like attracts like and this being the case, like minds are attracted to each other. People with the same interests and desires are naturally drawn together as in a group consciousness.

Much of this thinking grew from the unrest in the sixties and dissatisfaction with the status quo. It was a time of prosperity and many people began to feel left out. Instead of improving themselves and finding ways to participate in the “American Dream”, Instead of working for it themselves, they began to devise ways to take the wealth others had created, either through taxation or other devious and subtle means.

Many times this stemmed from a lack of self-confidence people had in themselves.

Of course, the politicians and media recognized this immediately, it seemed like the ideal situation to not only sell more newspapers, but votes could be garnered by preying on people’s sympathies and tendencies to want to help the less fortunate, everyone loves a victim.
