Appearance VS Reality

Illusion of appearance and confusion of reality are two concepts that been used and abused by the regimes of socialistic and democratic countries. Everyone knows that the most common and effective way to brainwash the society is using the Mass Media. News, statistics, minor issues, pop music and movie industry can be used to set the atmosphere of the major channel. It’s also being used as a tool of mental manipulation by the authority, or other individual that sponsors the source of Mass Media. An idea of doublethink and the system of metaphysics is successfully used not only in socialistic countries, but in democratic countries as well. However, the mental manipulations in democratic countries are protected by the word “DEMOCRACY”, which allows them to have great potentials and bigger ambitions to control national and international Media.
