An individual is not a robot- they're human - they have emotions and when those emotions are attempted to be altered by a am authoritarian platform or party line they tend to use their free unbiased education as a means of dissent... Not propaganda aginst the controlling regime but truth and knowledge -not only at he political level but the national level - to let all know the totalitarian regime is bull****. Similar to Orwells 1984...
Sure it's possible to enslave 1,000,000's into obedient work camps but they;re the less educated and hence the most obedient but the educated with their civil liberties will be a massive problem with the progressive Communists and considering their agenda is too weak considering their lack of agrgession, which would in theory contradict the entire the whole "hippie peace" movement..
Don't forget there are plenty of "poor folks" who envision the American dream that you write off as dissidents, beggers and otherwise losers ..
Damn this could be a movie script about present reality,,,,,
