They help the other 94% of our planetary cohabs get with the fucking program, is what. Without an ideology to guide them, they'd go the way of the neandertals.
I'm quite sure that's the rationalization.
And it sure helped in 1939.
So how do you propose we keep ideologies from the masses?
At the risk of sounding pinealist, by keeping them confused.
Now we need a formula to induce severe cognitive dissonance on a nationwide scale.
I'm going to disagree, and state that any confusion we engender should be aimed at making their ideologies fail faster.
This just makes me think of the classic Daffy vs. Bugs cartoon where they're going at it over what hunting season it is - Rabbit Season! Duck Season! Rabbit Season!
... and then Bugs confuses Daffy into forcing Fudd to shoot him because he becomes CONVINCED it's Duck Season.
THAT is how confusion should be used - make them blow their own damn fool heads off. It's the only way to wake them up that has a hope of working. And if it doesn't, at least they got their damn fool heads blown off while we laugh.
Oh, yeeeeah. That gives me an idea.
