A dramatic and well written parable of the insane and despotic nature of our current society. America has indeed become a propaganda machine designed to encourage self-enslavement. This is the essence of the collectivist ideal; to convince the masses that they must be subservient to the "greater good". But who determines what the "greater good" entails? Well, the "qualified experts", of course. Collectivism is a plague that destroys the creative individualism and freedom of a culture and leaves it a worthless remnant. The husk of a once meaningful endeavor. The most successful of all tyrannies are those that are able to manipulate the people into participating in their own subjugation. In the words of Goethe:
"None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free."
