It seems that for the majority this is all too complicated to understand. We need to increase the average IQ to have any hope of pushing back against this.

Yes. It took me a long time to get the concept and I still may be off. If anyone's interested: Think of the 2004 presidential election, pitting John Kerry against George W. Bush. Both were from monied, connected, north-eastern families, both attended Yale and were in the exclusive Skull & Bones. It was a classic Hegelian setup where the voters' choice was not a choice at all since both candidates would have followed the dictates of their overlords. We were led to believe that there was a huge difference between the two but there was none—the classic Hegelian trick.
