Brainwashed I guess is not best term to use. For me, people are just more focused on material things and they tend to forget their goals. Or it could also be they're just enjoying the moment and set aside their goals in life for a while.

i believe that yes. since our childhood, unfortunatelly our opinion, our preferences, our goals are already programmed. and only strong, very strong people can resist that system.

There are a bunch of really interesting documentaries about Edward Bernays and his work.  I highly recommend the one by Adam Curtis called 'The Century of the Self':

  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eJ3RzGoQC4s

or reading Bernays work 'Propaganda' which, to be honest, I've not done yet.

'Brainwashing' is kind of like a piece of cloth in that once a tear gets started, it can continue and destroy the whole item.  Modern propaganda is aimed at trying to not let tears get started (by use of what I call 'information channels' and censorship mostly) and attempting the 'stitch in time' principle.  This by making people uncomfortable with certain thought patterns and thus reject them.  The term 'conspiracy theory' and weaving in 'guilt' into the fabric are two methods in common use.

In reading Orwell's work, it is almost inconceivable to me that he was not very familiar with the 'insiders' who've understood well Bernays' work and decided to use it systematically to their advantage for social control.

I think you got the it correct that most people will not, for a variety of reasons, ever really break out.  Probably more than meet the 'very strong' bar however, and probably enough to cause some real problems for the proverbial 'powers that be.'  Hope so.

The shit always hits the fan eventually.  These are events that cause a lot of un-noticed defect to turn into huge tears.  These are also the times when people who who've had some seeds of doubt germinating in the ground 'wake up' and make a difference.  It's not a total waste of time to try to plant some of these seeds when possible....though the results may not appear within one's own lifetime.

Edit: slight.

Yes we are brainwashed. And the funny thing is, we already know it but we don't mind it. It's a very interestingly pathetic situation. We are being used by this new data system where everything can be recorded and process it as they please. We know it but we don't mind. It's a super brainwash, I salute them, they did a wonderful job.

This is sad but it's true. its happening people in the past gave their life for freedom, they were passionate, patriotic and nationalistic and more than that they were the people who fight,, who fought for their marriage to work, fought for their family stability, fought for what is right not being use by others. If only these people realize what they are losing and that there's still time to make up and become better person, better citizen, better human being.

our society is buried in new technologies ... Previously, to feed our family, we fled into the forest and hunted or collected berries and mushrooms, now even the store does not need to go to the store and the courier with your products is already going to you, we are very lazy. ... our children do not imagine their lives without selfi, social networks and electronic zombie programming for them it became an obsession, status ... and where is the fun in the yard with friends, funny fun in the street ... soon the grounds of our children will be covered dust, and the guests will go only nlayn sad ... and how to be in this situation? just need to be an example for your children.

There are still people who weren't brainwashed and that would like to fight for something better than what we have now. People that would like to live in a more sincere and aware world, keeping the traditions, respecting the frontiers and the individuals, but these people are too few, aren't together (they don't know each other) and don't have the necessary influence or power on their hands to make the difference.

Also, they can tell whatever they want to other people and they won't listen, it will be like empty words, worthless effort, because most people don't want to wake up from the modus operandi they are already used to.

Sometimes seems there will a resistance to the imminent destruction of the old good values that brought the world to the evolutional state we reached some time ago and that people will wake up before it's too late, but it never really happens. People are inspiring themselves in wrong ideas and concepts.

unfortunately we are. but we can resist. as soon as we understand that someone had washed our brains we are starting to get rid of it and we become smarter. brainwashing has started many years age, the global elite doesn't need educated people around the world, so, they brainwash us since our early childhood

I get what you mean. But not all of these blessings we have today means that we are brainwashed by society. These technologies we have today are fruits of those goals and dreams who invented them. It is bad to be a slave to these technologies but using them for the greater good is not. There are still dreams and goals out there waiting to be achieved.

To an extent i do believe in what you're saying. We have become a nation of sheep where we just readily accept what the media gives us as "factual information", we give in to a herd mentality where we should have the latest gadget or fashion so we can increase our self worth. We bash and put down one another simply because we can hide from the anonymity of an avatar. We have a mentality now that if someone can do it better, why do it at all.

The world is held bound by hegemonic forces of economic sabotage.
When people are hungry, they prefer to find food first and get filled
before considering being a hero of some sort.In the world of today, the
government make fiat money very scarce to people as to control them.
The reason for crypto decentralized currency is to reduce or remove
the centralized control of money by forces of governments.This is the
singular force influencing the way people think, act and behave.

Money is the only goal in this life.

Living a healthy life is the second. You can nearly buy everything with money, even health. (unless you aren't fucked up beyond repair) Are we brainwashed? Damn, yes. We are like little rats, working our asses off everyday for dollars.

Watch "American Psycho" if you haven't watch yet and see how crazy we can get for money. The dude(Bale) who plays Patrick has a great amount of money and can buy everything yet he is not happy at all. Worse yet, he doesn't have a "real" friend.

painful truth, but can't deny it.

I think we've been being brainwashed for a long time, and still are.The fact that we do and believe things based on social conditioning rather than critical thought is a positive indication of brainwashing that still takes place in society.

 brainwashing is done via television advertisement, they market their products and tell you exactly what you need and convince you to buy them.
