Moralmatters Reader comment:
“Herein is the huge mental problem with the vast majority of Americans:
Most people grow up in a family, school and church. They are surrounded and boxed-in by strong authority figures ALL their life. They learn to respect and BELIEVE these authority figures.
Here is the bottom-line crux of the situation: They STILL, STILL cannot believe that their ‘government’ or ‘media’ would LIE to them.
This is exactly how totalitarian governments operate. Is the US government a tyranny? Answer that for yourself. You already know what I think.”
Moralmatters author responded to the above comment:
Excellent summation! That “mental problem” which you succinctly describe is a huge untoward mental block.
I keep referencing on this Moralmatters website the Biblical Scripture principle of The Depravity Of Human Nature (aka, The Depravity of Man). Humans are intrinsically dishonest by virtue of their fallen sinful nature!
Hence, therein, I think we have the root reason for this “huge mental problem” you so excellently describe!
Furthermore, these people are living in a fairy tale world, not believing that their “authority figures, government and media” would lie to them. In essence, they are the genuine nutty and crazy “conspiracy theorists” for their unrealistic worldview perception!

“A thinking person will question what he hears; examine what he sees; and evaluate what others would have him believe. When did big government and its mainstream media tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth?” – [Pastor emeritus Nathan M. Bickel]
