I know, that I, for one, spent a LOT of time explaining how the mainstream media uses everything from lies told often to trauma-induced, fear-based mind control to bamboozle the masses.
I have also spent many hours explaining the difference between the deceiver and the one deceived, the perpetrator of the crime and the one victimized.
And what I typically find is that those who may hold compromised purposes in participating in these opinion threads co-opt these insights into how mass media's manufacture of consent operates... only to use it as yet another tool with which to bludgeon citizens.
Dark complacency? (Note the CORRECT spelling of the word!)
So the Black Lives Matter movement is about complacency?
And the Latino Dreamers movement is about complacency?
And the many at Walmart and fast food operations who stayed home or took part in protests for a living wage are complacent?
And the thousands who attended Occupy Wall St. were complacent?
And the thousands who show up at Bernie's rallies are complacent?
And the thousands who took to the streets to protest climate change and leaders doing ZIP about it are complacent?
And the thousands (actually, millions) who protested the onset of the War against Iraq are complacent?
And those who got arrested at military sites, the White House, and various other protests are complacent?
NO. This is not about people being complacent. This is about how to wrest power away from those who spent decades nefariously seizing it... through extra-judicial, quasi-legal means when it wasn't otherwise purchased.
