The mainstream Internet is one giant reactive corpo-politico-media propaganda conditioning machine. What really brought this out was how people swapped out their BLM signs for Ukraine flags right on cue. In this way they walked bleeding heart liberals right into supporting the military industrial complex and becoming warhawks without even realizing it.
It’s hard to fathom how plugged in some people are, and how uncritically they absorb whatever is promoted within their social networks. The social need to signify in-group status is so overwhelming with so many people that this can easily be surreptitiously manipulated without them even noticing. Group psychology is manipulated at the mass scale. Facebook has researched social contagion and how sentiments propagate over networks, the level of social engineering that is possible is unimaginable.
