re: Why are humans so easily fooled?
Because most people don’t care to educate themselves on anything more than they’re forced to. This also applies to a lot of people who make straight As in school. They are great inside the format of traditional education but can’t operate outside of that box to save their lives.

Exactly, if you look in the web for info regarding the "induced neurosis" experiments that Pavlov did, you will realize that "they" are doing something very similar to us.

The idea is to keep you insecure and keep selling you temporary fixes

Now you're looking for the secret. But you won't find it because of course, you're not really looking. You don't really want to work it out. You want to be fooled.

re: Why are humans so easily fooled?
This is actually a good question. I have always been the skeptical type and it can be to a fault at times because I think everyone is full of shite so it confuses me when I see people fall for shite. Some people it can be something that is part of their personality.

They just automatically take everyone at their word. Some people, it depends on the environment they grew up in. My dad use to tell me all the time things like "if something sounds too good to be true, that's because it is" and "always question a person's motive".. Things like that. So it really is hard for me to understand how people get caught up in "cult like" establishments, but it is a combination of things.

Like I mentioned, it could be the environment someone grew up in, it could be the want to be liked or want to connect with people... These factors blind them from the obvious.

But there are times I think "there is no way people will fall for that shit" or "people will see straight through that person" and they don't... It just amazes me how quick people by into something and don't even bother to learn about it, do some fact checking, etc.

With a thin piece of plastic in my mouth and what basically amounts to a plastic sex doll, I can lure a turkey in and shoot it.

It’s easy to fool to fool creatures, especially males, because we’re all just horny.
