Research Project

The Hero’s Manifesto?

My research project will be a search for evidence to prove that a majority of human beings do not think for themselves. It will explore how this not only affects their daily lives, but how it also leads to the rise of authoritarian and totalitarian systems. At some point, people have to start thinking critically about the information that is constantly being regurgitated from the media and the government, otherwise they lose total control over their lives.
