Probable Cause with Sibel Edmonds: How to Detangle the Majority Caught in the Web of Political Conformity?

Welcome to our sixth episode of Probable Cause. For this episode we’ll be revisiting our discussions in the first three episodes-revolution, and combine that with what we discussed during the last two shows. We are going from identifying the ‘what’ to explaining through ‘whys’ and arriving at the important stage of ‘how.’

I am going to discuss one of the biggest impediments we face in translating revolutionary thoughts into actions- Cattle-mindedness, and its ingredients: Learned Helplessness, Conformity and self-fulfilling Prophecy. To illustrate these I’ll present a couple of real-life examples, including the fizzled TSA Opt Out Campaign. I will also include a fun but sobering hypothetical example: The coming Opt Out Clause for the NSA’s surveillance operations and the likely public response.

As always, I will be providing my take based on what I have been observing, through my own personal lens, reasoning and analyses, and will pose important macro questions for you to consider. And as usual our next episode will be based on your reaction, critique, responses and questions posed in the comments section below.
