Or you can in this case turn it around and say that those stuck in the past and don't want things to change to the better are zombies bought by the oil industry preachers, their hidden agendas and their economic interests.I sum this all up in one word -- Indoctrination .
It starts with promoting whatever agenda they desire in a manner where people stop questioning and simply believe . Enter the preacher (I mean Mr Seba ) with a sermon fit for a TV audience of sheep like zombies who nod their heads . With leaders viewed as inerrant the hidden agendas , deceit , and exploitation process begins . The effort is made to silence dissent and reward the flock ( money, praise , and an overall sense that they made the right choice even though it never was a choice).
Maybe the 3-5 year prediction is a speculated timeline to produce a cult belief and the hope to implement the legislature to secure it.
They already got a few on board here .
Honestly @grim -- its one of those debates that just ends up being a waste of time . I do commend your patience and effort .
