How are people controlled? Mass media such as television. That is a great way to program people! Think about it. We have Family Matters, Sister Sister, and whatever else is popular these days. These shows act as role models for the general public. A few hit "role model" shows where children ask a lot of questions can be portrayed as signs of growing genius and show how their parents and teachers respond positively to them even when they don't now the answer. Now I don't recommend making things up like Santa Clause, the Tooth Fairy, Heaven, and other pipe dreams but to simply say I don't know but lets see if we can find out. Now that I've mentioned it, lets bring the public into reality. Openly discuss the non-existence of santa clause and other fairy tells on childrens programming. When everyone's in the open about that it won't be long before theist ideas are torn down either (or at least looked at critically). Then we can all move forward.
