This first section deals with more of the u.s. history of policy-maker ideology, starting with the Founding Fathers views, as researched by Joyce Appleby. The ideology is quite uncritically oriented to fooling we, the masses, and manipulating us against each other, as well as basically keeping us subordinated to their rule. Basically, we're allegedly all "too stupid" to be "capable" of understanding things....(cops, soldiers too) http://www.zmag.org/chomsky/ni/ni-c01-s05.html
The second part focuses more on 20th century figures who are viewed by those with ivy league-style educations in the areas of policy implementation: http://www.zmag.org/chomsky/ni/ni-c01-s06.html
As you become more familiar with the methods of those who wish to keep us under their thumbs, so to speak (probably due more to being stuck in rigid fear somehow), you may learn better what Saul Alynsky called "Mass Jiu-Jitsu"; basically, a crucial art method to disarm the heaviest side of a bigotry which keeps us *ALL* divided and conquered.
Note: my aim here is to promote getting BEYOND dichotomist trenches, like "us and them"(re: the ideological Left, Moderate, and Right-wings of belief) and to influence the creating of a society where ALL *individuals* are *valued*; only their behavior and mind-sets would be possibly under serious challenge--a challenge which understands the beautiful value of being able to meaningfully connect with others!
