Fifty percent of the population is of below media intelligence, and knowledge concerning any matter would be distributed similarly. In the West, particularly in the Anglosphere, the proles are brainwashed, relentlessly, 24/7, by fakestream media liars and hypocrites, PR, advertising, ‘think-tanks’ and ‘entertainment’ ALL of which promulgate a relentless Rightwing, neo-liberal and Imperialist propaganda narrative. I really cannot recall a single report anywhere in the indoctrination apparatus, concerning Russia, China, Iran, Venezuela, etc, that I have seen, which was not negative, often venomously so. And people are cowards. Upon encountering a belligerent Zionist, most people cower before the usual foam-flecked outbursts, and, if you stand your ground, you are obviously an ‘antisemite’ and this is another ‘antisemitic’ incident to report, or get you thrown out of the Labour Party or your employment terminated. Similar problems arise, usually at a lesser intensity, if you dare defend Russia or China. It’s like arguing with any Rightist, over subjects like anthropogenic climate destabilisation, where science, rationality and simple commonsense evaporate before the onslaught of ideological certainty. It’s one of the many faults of ‘human intelligence’ that will shortly get us extinguished as a species.
