The Elephant Rope (Belief)

 A gentleman was walking through an elephant camp, and he spotted that the elephants weren’t being kept in cages or held by the use of chains. All that was holding them back from escaping the camp, was a small piece of rope tied to one of their legs. 
As the man gazed upon the elephants, he was completely confused as to why the elephants didn’t just use their strength to break the rope and escape the camp. They could easily have done so, but instead, they didn’t try to at all.Curious and wanting to know the answer, he asked a trainer nearby why the elephants were just standing there and never tried to escape. 
The trainer replied; when they are very young and much smaller we use the same size rope to tie them and, at that age, it’s enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free.”

I thought , the answer given by the elephant trainer was very useful in our present situation too.Our conditioning starts from Home, Neighborhood, Friends, Schooling which shapes us.

It applies to so called Conservative in real life who did not have any political affiliation but all of sudden become a hard core CONSERVATIVE as if it was in their blood (birth). In reality they are just a Trumper not thing more than that.

This story applies to most people who grew up watching mainstream media, clueless to the fact that the owners if the media actually control the food industry the healthcare medicare pharmaceutical industry the military industry, and most thing shown in media is to increase their profit and influence.

People would like to read thread that has magic word to TRAP sajha visitors attention like "chikani chameli" and so on.
This one is not a great heading but who ever read it, did they evaluate how they were and are "Conditioned"? I do not think we ever evaluate ourselves?
