THE writer Aldous Huxley in his book Brave New World explained how the establishment kept the masses quiet by giving them 'somas'.

These 'somas' involved the masses taking part in organised brainwashing.

Over the last 10 years the establishment in Britain have used get rich quick schemes to keep the masses quiet. These schemes have included the National Lottery and TV programmes such as 'Who wants to be a Millionaire?'

Latest addition to this organised brainwashing has to be Channel 4's 'Deal or No Deal' hosted by that dreadful Noel Edmonds.

The Scottish philosopher Rab C Nesbitt once said that 'having to watch daytime TV is one reason why the unemployed and the retired should be put out of their misery'.

Having recently watched 'Deal or No Deal', I can now fully understand what Rab was getting at.
