You know, this manipulation is only so potent because people have no forewarning. There is no reason exposure of these methods could not be taught in schools, early, just as phonics should also be taught, early. If we lived in a benevolent, life-loving society (as Galt's Gulch was depicted to be, for example), no question this would be how children would be raised. They would then be *impervious* to the freaky power-lusters ... it just takes a little intelligent planning to defeat them.
This is not pie in the sky on my part, either. It's just giving the human race the chance that, seemingly, we/they have NEVER had. A very shocking fact...
And then, from there, we reinstitute a Constitutional Republic, with **a few vital changes**, for safety's sake. Yep, I think that'd work just fine. :-))
