Yes, it's a cesspool, so to speak.
When someone like you or I speaks of these things-we're called crazy. When they do it...it really makes people think. These people were in the echelons of government-not an anonymous user on a forum like you and I. This is not a Left/Right issue, nor is it a Democrat/Republican one. It's a culture of corruption and deception that is actively partaken in by all sides.
Why do you think it is that the Intelligentsia (as Hitler called them) are the first to be oppressed if they don't agree?
Eric Hoffer said that "men of words" (among which you and I would be considered)-if not behind the movement-are a grave threat to it. However, if we are brought into it-we almost always ensure it's stay in power, as seen in Dynastic China, where the top Men of Words were the ones in power-supported by the otherwise ignorant and deceived masses, whom can be mobilized for their wills.
Whereas Qin Shi Huang Di (the first emperor of united China) actively persecuted (see, slaughtered) the men of words, and so his government and military fell into a state of disrepair, and his son could not hold together the nation-and after only one generation, Qin Dynasty China fell and gave way to the Han Dynasty under Liu Bang.
What we see throughout history is that even the educated minority can become corrupt and evil if they stay in power long enough-while the uneducated majority are virtually incompetent and also fall as well.
Another person who wrote in length on the matter was Edward Bernays, the author of the simply termed, "Propaganda".
"It is not usually realized how necessary these invisible governors are to the orderly functioning of our group life. In theory, every citizen may vote for whom he pleases. Our Constitution does not envisage political parties as part of the mechanism of government, and its framers seem not to have pictured to themselves the existence in our national politics of anything like the modern political machine. But the American voters soon found that without organization and direction their individual votes, cast, perhaps, for dozens or hundreds of candidates, would produce nothing but confusion. Invisible government, in the shape of rudimentary political parties, arose almost overnight. Ever since then we have agreed, for the sake of simplicity and practicality, that party machines should narrow down the field of choice to two candidates, or at most three or four."
To Bernays, an educated mass of citizens who take the time to logically think about what is best actually slows down the process-and he's right.
The sad realization is that most people are blatantly ignorant-and that democracy only runs "smoothly" when they remain so. So too with the military, where obedience trumps independence. A solider cannot do his job well if he is hesitant-so he gives up his individuality to his unit, who's thought process was governed by their superiors. How else do you get citizens to march side by side in unison only to be shot down (it's an analogy based on Napoleonic warfare, but the analogy still holds it's own)?
While I despise that propaganda and guided ignorance from above is used for negative reasons-I also must admit that without it...Democracy nor the Military can function "smoothly".
MY issue with the philosophy is when it's forced on the masses. Most people will never take the time to study anything of any significance outside themselves. They are "rank and file" people and they are sadly-necessary for our systems to work.
Consider what our democratic process would look like if 100 million people voted based on 100 million different view of the course and need for the nation. The sad truth is-Democracy cannot run effieicently without narrowing down the choices to just a few-as Bernays said.Source(s): The brutal truth, like it or not.

I'd say, both.
