Brainwashed Brainwashers

Forgive them for they know not what they do.

BB landscapeThe key to imperialist propaganda agendas are the #BrainwashedBrainwashers - journalists who buy into Deep State narratives because their jobs and community prestige depend on not challenging either their bosses or their audience. We must work to flip them.

This, however, raises a big issue with the term 'brainwash'. No one wants to think they're brainwashed even though we all are in one way or another. If we insist that the word 'brainwashing' is pejorative, then it will be denied; no one will reflect on their own experience of it, let alone change.
Don't shoot the messengers; wake them up gently. Their incomes, communities, lifestyles and self-worth depend on sleeping on the job.
