I argue that representative government, either in what is ordinarily called politics, or in industry, cannot be worked successfully, no matter what the basis of election, unless there is an independent, expert organization for making the unseen facts intelligible to those who have to make the decisions. I attempt, therefore, to argue that the serious acceptance of the principle that personal representation must be supplemented by representation of the unseen facts would alone permit a satisfactory decentralization, and allow us to escape from the intolerable and unworkable fiction that each of us must acquire a competent opinion about all public affairs.

There will be, in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution.
++Aldous Huxley speech was made for the Tavistock Group at the California Medical School in 1961.
At a 1968 Tavistock conference, Zbigniew Brzezinski released Between Two Ages: America’s Role in The Technetronic Era in which he spoke about mass mind control of populations using amusement focus.
… In the technetronic society the trend seems to be toward …effectively exploiting the latest communication techniques to manipulate emotions and control reason. Human beings become increasingly manipulated and malleable

Hard to get better than this.
I wish, though, that it was only Obama leading and “nudging” us to our now inevitable self-destruction as a nation, once defined by protected borders, unifying culture and a once ubiquitous, cherished idea called America, even if that idea was never truly achieved. But it is not so. The entire Anglo-American “Western” world is rapidly being led to a nation-less, borderless transnational corporate and fascist global tyranny, supported and enforced by the coercive military and corporate forces of the American Empire and those of our servile, intellectually and economically captured imperial provinces.
What has been done, cannot be undone. The poison has been slowly working its way to our civilizations heart for generations; it has been well placed, though most cannot fathom this reality. Mark my words, as the journey to understanding the nature of our world today, at least for me, has been long, over more than 40 years of research and reading, distressing mentally and emotionally very disturbing, America is being poisoned and soon will be ripped apart. The State will survive, the nation will die and we, formerly calling ourselves, perhaps too pridefully, American’s, bound by birth, culture, language and common sustaining historical mythologies, will be forced, under the total surveillance of military and police, to become slaves. Slaves not to our American elites, but to a global transnational Kleptacory and fascist tyranny. However, first the pain of global economic collapse.
What’s done, cannot be undone.
Doctor: This disease is beyond my practise: yet I have known those which have walked in their sleep who have died holily in their beds. LADY MACBETH: Wash your hands, put on your nightgown; look not so pale.--I tell you yet again, Banquo's buried; he cannot come out on's grave. Doctor: Even so? LADY MACBETH: To bed, to bed! there's knocking at the gate: come, come, come, come, give me your hand. What's done cannot be undone.--To bed, to bed, to bed! ====Macbeth: ACT V SCENE I
