How Do We Take America Back From the Suckers & The Uber-Wealthy?

Thom plus logo Christopher Wiley, the guy who worked at Cambridge Analytica under Steve Bannon, has laid out how they identified potential Trump voters. They looked for the same type of vulnerabilities in white people who the military had previously been profiling among American muslims as vulnerable to indoctrination or radicalization by groups like ISIS. Targeting American whites they thought could be easily brainwashed, through a few dozen metrics they could identify based on Facebook profiles, they set out to radicalize them, only for Trump and the alt-right, instead of for ISIS. It's been a mystery for some time why Trump voters would be so enthusiastic, even cult-like, when Trump's policies would actually screw in them badly and just help out the billionaire class.

Now we know why. Billionaire Rupert Murdoch runs Fox News the way that the billionaire Mercer family ran Cambridge Analytica - reaching out to white people who are easily radicalized, and turning them into Trump cult members who would support policies that make the rich richer while burrowing deeper and deeper into hate and paranoia. Now America's big challenge is,

"How do you do you de-program a person who's been brought into a cult through a very carefully done multi-million dollar campaign of screening for vulnerable people and then breaking them psychologically? How do we help them realize that by aligning themselves with billionaires and polluting corporations, they're just hurting themselves?"

From Cracking the Code:
"Thom Hartmann ought to be bronzed. His new book sets off from the same high plane as the last and offers explicit tools and how-to advice that will allow you to see, hear, and feel propaganda when it's directed at you and use the same techniques to refute it. His book would make a deaf-mute a better communicator. I want him on my reading table every day, and if you try one of his books, so will you."
