If my summary of what you said is more or less correct, then I will respond: I am not advocating for socialism or marxism here, neither ignorantly or intentionally. I simply am not doing so here. This part: “human beings are by and large aware that the naive methods of presentation of things of their particular culture are not telling them the whole story” is quite literally all my post was about because no, they are not. I have several friends that I cannot say anything negative about Elon Musk whatsoever around. I have other friends with whom I cannot say anything negative about Mark Zuckerberg and used to have friends I couldn’t say anything about Bill Gates about – but they were long ago. The reason I couldn’t is that they were utterly enamored by their brilliant PR. They could RATIONALLY agree that “yes, there’s more to the story” but became sad or combative at any suggestion that they are anything less than what is shown on the packaging.

ok: I’m understanding better now:
You are framing this as a:
Socialist vs Capitalist binary.
In this framework you present,
there is either “with us” or “against us” with the “us” being either one or the other and anybody who is NOT expressly stating this, is either unaware of the part they play in the larger scheme or possibly misrepresenting.
