The Narcissistic State: Max Keiser and Stacey Herbert discuss how consumers are manipulated to make decisions against their own best interests.

Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss nudging consumers like pigeons and mental patients into acting as the technocratic elite wish them to behave – more consumption, more selfies, more fatal masturbation.
This outcome is achieved through rewarding narcissistic behaviour with plastic trinkets and poker chips which make subjects feel a false sense of empowerment by the decisions they’ve been programmed to make.
Max and Stacey look at examples of successful nudging in the UK where the electorate is bought off with games of chutes and property ladders for desired narcissistic reactionary response instead of rational, long-term planning.
If nudging does not work, however, there is always bludgeoning as is done in the US where the Internal Revenue Service (I.R.S.) has been seizing the bank deposits of non-complying citizen-pigeons who have not incurred massive debts.
