“Devotion to the truth is the hallmark of morality; there is no greater, nobler, more heroic form of devotion than the act of a man who assumes the responsibility of thinking.” ― Ayn Rand,
When the Chinese Communist dictator Mao Ze Dong came to power during the 1960s, he led college students across the country in a deadly movement called “The Cultural Revolution.” Effectively able to brainwash students who were struggling under debt, Mao compelled them to slaughter all educated people. Doctors, lawyers, teachers, and family were killed by their sons and daughters under his direction. The story of the cultural revolution is a serious reminder of what can happen when students allow someone else to control their minds.
Today we face a situation that bears a frightening resemblance. Warring powers today fight for control of our minds towards their own political ends and no one is exempt. The first step to breaking the control the power elite has on your mind is by waking up to understand what is going on. Here at the Rouser, we seek to enable you with the tools to free your mind and realize your true intellectual potential, along with offering real news from around the world.
