It's this simple. It's why the Death Cult seized the culture using the Mammon Mob and the Pop Cult as fronts and fools.
They use the culture--and this includes the institutions--to compel not only your compliance, but your conversion to their Satantic death cult.
This is why they cannot permit alternatives at any level. This is why they choke off access to whatever they can neither control nor destroy. They have to have total control of the entire culture to make their cult stick. It's that fragile.
They aren't acting like they've won. Not in DC. Not anywhere. Empire falls.
