The governments employ "spin doctors" so as to steer peoples thoughts in a certain direction and has been happening forever, nothing new to today.

We have all been manipulated in form or another by media/governments etc.

Read the news or watch the telly for the latest manufactured crises. They can't even do a weather forecast without the drama.

Yes.
Stop funding government and big business to the largest extent possible and convince others to do the same.

Going to sound rather negative here but to answer the question "could we escape?", basically, no.

If you examine the wealth system of any relatively rich nation, you will find that the working class citizens pay more taxes than the multi-millionaires due to some handy accountancy work.

The rich need the poorer people to stay poor as if there are more rich then less tax is paid back due to the loopholes in place for the very wealthy.

As for escaping, even if there was a revolution so as to stop this happening, it wouldn't take long after that to start falling back into the rich-and-poor systems.

I've said it before here but if you gave everyone in a nation one million dollars, how quick do you think we would fall back into our current situation with extremely wealthy and extreme poverty?.. I would say not long at all.

If you mean manipulation just on the news level, then one can't escape that either because no matter which news channel you follow or whoever writes the article, it will always steer your thoughts one way or another.

I'm a psych major. It's basic human nature to be "manipulated". Human interaction forces you to see a different perspective rather than the one who are in at this exact moment so in a way is manipulative. Also, the mere act of deeming something "news" (as an important event) is biased. In the eyes of nature, a quiet day is exactly the same as a catastrophic day. It takes an opinion to deem something as news therefore all news is biased in one way or another.

I do understand what you mean though. News reports word things in such a way as to change the way people think about it.

I think it's not just the government, we're being manipulated by even the local people, not all but most of them. We're manipulated online, we're manipulated by the media, and we're manipulated by the government. We never know the bigger picture of things, usually most people see the images they're trying to show. Just the reality of the world we live in.

I saw this thing on one of putin's top advisors about how he has a tactic of painting the world of confusion so you don't know who the enemy is or what actually is happening. It's used so the enemy doesn't know how to retaliate. If this is applied to governments in the western world it does show that people in power can therefore have more power over their people.
We live in an era where everything is monitored and watched yet there is more fear about terrorism, there is more uncertainty about the economy more unrest about everything.
We have so much information that we should feel unjust about our politicians and governments because it certainly isn't about having the support of the people but the control of them.
Am I wrong?

Manipulating one another is what we do, everyone is manipulating another. If you look at Insurance companies, funeral services etc they are all manipulating the public so we just need to understand how it works and get to the same page.
