You can depend on the public forgetting about anything and everything.

MSM keeps them on a steady regimen of bullshit and fear every single day. If a topic comes up that is controversial, I highly doubt you would hear about it again.

A perfect example that's still quite relevant is this Russia scare. The US has interfered in foreign elections 81 times between 1946 and 2000 but if you bring that up to anybody discussing Russia interfering in our last election, they think you're crazy.

Try reading the book Confessions of an Economic Hitman, by John Perkins. He details how his job required him to essentially extort foreign countries in debt to the IMF and World Bank in order to let them agree to US corporations coming in and privatizing as much as they can. He even went as far as saying that if they didn't want to agree, he would literally threaten them with being assassinated by the "jackals". Try telling that to your everyday person and see what they think of it. I can almost guarantee they would rather dismiss, forget, or call you crazy.

The USA is a prime example of mass amnesia when it comes to what our government does every day. I can't think of anything more hypocritical.
