this is part of a story we are telling ourselves about how ignorant most people are, yet we all somehow consider ourselves exempt and incapable of being manipulated. one thing is for sure, every one of us is trapped in an ignorance particular to our age. people in the future we see us a both quaint and stupid in the same way we consider people from a hundred years ago.
