Bread And Circuses

Bread and circuses:
deliberate political distraction
of consciousness.

“Bread and circuses” was a phrase used by the satirical Roman poet, Juvenal, and refers to superficial appeasement, commonly used in cultural and political contexts.

An idea – which is just as relevant today – that people can be pacified by food and entertainment when they should be questioning what’s happening in front of them. While we argue about the food and entertainment, the plot thickens. Put a nominal figurehead in charge (existing in name only with nothing to say) for people to complain about, while others do as they please.

Conspiracy theory or conspiracy fact?
We all know what is going on … but a pizza and a film come first.

Even if we don’t know our own mind, others do!
