Our compliance with the current political economy is assured through control of our world view. Daily Pickings often refers to Century of the Self, a BBC series which explains how mass psychology is used to transform human beings with needs, into "consumers" with "choices" and desires. David DeGraw, in Part 2 of his book, The Economics of Revolution, explains the techniques used by the ruling clique (RC) to obtain our willing consent to abuse and enslavement, as they amass greater wealth and power.

The Jesuit claim "Give me the child for seven years, and I will give you the man" is premised on the conviction that character is moulded in the first years of life. Mass conditioning goes further, turning us into Pavlov's people. Hence our acceptance of bombing and killing of those who we've been trained to view as less important and whose death barely affects us.
Only by breaking free from our conditioned world view can we see the world as it is, rather than how we've been trained to see it.
