A Canadian Reader Answers The Question “Why Are Americans (And Canadians) So Deferential To Their `Leaders`?”—Brainwashing!
Re: Steve Sailer’s blog item Why Are Americans So Deferential?

I think I have an answer to that question. One hundred years of massive brainwashing by governments, the Propaganda Media (aka MSM), Hollywood movies and the indoctrination system of “education” has twisted the minds of Americans (and Canadians) rendering them seemingly incapable of even considering what doesn’t conform to “conventional thinking”.
What we are witnessing is what happens to a people fed a daily diet of lies and distortions that are in fundamental conflict with daily observations and experiences.
You end up with intellectual dissonance and twisted minds which may be partly biologically reconditioned. In other words, our minds may have been biological re-engineered into something like the Stockholm Syndrome.
This may sound far-fetched but I have tested this theory among professionals of varied backgrounds (e.g., scientists, doctors, lawyers, judges, senior civil servants, etc.) and it is in fact true.
A specific example is a former senior civil servant, with high position in the Royal Society of Canada, who became a very good friend but was unable to even discuss mass-immigration from the third-world let alone fundamental racial differences.
When I first read Orwell’s 1984 in the 1960s, I thought it was science fiction. Now I know that it is close representation of the truth—although even George Orwell could not imagine the role of technology in the development of the surveillance state. The truth is we have been enslaved and most people are totally unaware of this inescapable fact. The concept of democracy, where your vote actually counts for something, is a rather sick joke but is nevertheless highly effective in controlling a population.
