What did the moon landing hoax teach us and what are its world wide implications? Firstly it showed us the public are easily fooled and secondly many scientists fall into "The King's New Clothes Syndrome." This is where scientists go along with a political agenda fearing ridicule if they step out of line! They also fear losing funding, money is always used as an incentive to toe the line!
Looking back through history, the "Wolf Pack Syndrome" mentality whereby the masses rigidly follow the directive of a minority in high office has often brought civilization to its knees. The mass genocides of Stalin's former Soviet Union and Mao's China would have been impossible to implement without "Wolf Pack Syndrome" and "King's New Clothes Syndrome" amongst academics/scientists.
In my view, we are seeing "Wolf Pack Syndrome" and "Kings New Clothes Syndrome" being used extensively to terrify everyone into compliance with the current seasonal f1u being hyped beyond all proportions to bring about a totalitarian political agenda. As with the supposed moon landings and the current seasonal f1u hypochondria, you can present the masses with overwhelming evidence that they have and are being lied to but they will dismiss the facts in favour of the myths! As Mark Twain once said: “It's Easier to Fool People Than It Is to Convince Them That They Have Been Fooled.
