Are you being willingly manipulated?
Not on the part of others.
Of course, others are trying to manipulate you.
I mean, are you allowing them by your laziness?
This reminded me of this chilling story from Andy Daniels.
Because politicians love giving away things for votes.
They will give away anything.
And all they want is your freedom.
Little by little, at first.
And then eventually all of it.
It’s far easier than you think to manipulate a nation of naïve, self-absorbed sheep who crave instant gratification.
