In this type of socialism it is easier to spread confusion. The media outlets are not responsibly proven and nobody checks the facts. Facts are coded by quick brain activity and reacted to. Immediate reactions elevate sensitivities to points of coming to impressions. Decisions are not made, transcendent thought does not occur. As sensitivities are raised further media release further stimulates quick brain activity so that group think yields the correct levels of action and disturbs the population in the desired direction.
It is irrelevant that individuals opt out of the process. The drift of the larger group of Bubbas is sufficient to fuel the money engines and liberate resources. The process appeals to mass marketers and politicians alike.
