Germans were brainwashed by Hitler during the 1930’s-40’s.
Russians were brainwashed by Lenin and Stalin for the majority of 20’s century.
Today, way too many people around the world are brainwashed by Isis and alike organizations to do things that are not prescribed by any religion in the name of religion.
Brainwashing did not leave SF untouched. Here, women have been brainwashed into thinking that being a feminist, i-phone addicted, make-up overconsuming corporate zombie, incapable for emotional vulnerability is a virtue. Men have been lead to believe that being an overly politically correct, beer drinking, game watching, sloppily dressed, emotionally unavailable douche, who doesn’t know how to make a move on a woman is the right way to be.
I am disappointed in humanity. I thought that by now we would know better, and we would be better. Don’t you?
