How about telling us what this is, in your own words BEFORE we dive into the "I want my 20 minutes back" of videos?

I challenge you to find a single conspiracy theorist who can do this.

The point of the videos is to have someone watch and form their own opinions. The fact that someone can't watch a couple small vids on a topic and needs someone else to spoon feed them an explanation sorta outlines the problem right there.

Why is it fear? It's education and just doing some research

Is it fear when you research a car purchase for the safest models and crash ratings, research drug interactions and allergies, research the safest and most well maintained airplanes, research citations to ensure what people claim is true, research a second doctors opinion or a third, fourth, etc?

This stuff isn't fear, it's simply taking in many sources of information and making your own dissemination and conclusions or sparking yourself to further dig into a topic. People that only have one source of news or information are sheep (gotcha evolved)

Uhhh, all those videos are from one source that draws its own conclusions. Just like any other 'ministry of information'

Thank you. You raise a great point about spoon feeding. Everyone is used to being spoon fed their "news" their food and their laws without ever questioning the motives behind them. The "proles" have been taught to embrace conformity via the television and to reject outside ideas which cause them to question the little bubble of false-reality that they live in.

If you are willing to accept things as truth or safe because some "official" says so or because it is "legal", without questioning the motives behind it, then you are essentially an unconscious being that does not know it is unconscious. You are being steered to think and behave in very specific ways.

I can do this. I have been called that on more than one occasion regarding 9/11, and I could summerize my opinions and belief regarding what happened on that day in a few sentences, and then provide evidence or proof to support what I think.

Not all people who think differently than the official story are nut jobs.

Unfortunately folks have been conditioned to criticize people who think differently about anything. It is human nature to want to fit in and influential people figured out a long time ago the power of manipulating human nature...For most people, the strongest influences come down to what other people will think because fitting in is the path of least resistance. Social acceptance is the lowest common denominator of the self - it is you as a social unit rather than you as a unique person.

Like I said, television sets the status quo on what acceptable thoughts and behavior are. It is inserted into everything on the tube in subtle ways to influence your opinion.

Here is an example

Precisely. Great comment.

It's no coincident, that they call TV shows "Programming."
