People don't seem to know how to adjust and accept the new reality, like scales falling off their eyes.
The "news" they've been consuming these past many years turns out to be something different from what the people in power report to each other about what's happening in the world, it's a jolt, understandable that many react by clinging all the more tightly to the familiar government propaganda.
People are just beginning to realize that passive consumption of this government propaganda is only one option.
The same platform that makes possible the mass hypnosis can also be used to expose the manipulation for what it is.
"Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!"
