This explains so much. We all do this sometimes ... but it also helps explain why uneducated people can be easily herded toward any goal. Global Warming in my opinion is an example since the propaganda used is highly emotional. The goal? Social and Economic Restructuring of world order and human population control with a large dose of high profit gains for those early investors in subsidized new technologies.
