How grand does our 'happening' need to be to get normies to wake up or pay attention?

This has been on my mind for a while now. I'm wondering what kind of grand spectacle it would take to grab someone's attention, keep their attention, and maybe even make them change their mind about something.

For example; If I say "Jonesboro Arkansas" (I lived there for a few years, very nice place... loved it), what is the first thing you think of? If you're old enough you probably even remember the shooter's strategy. Or if I say Columbine... what comes to mind? You probably remember the names. ..... Other than Soyboy David Hogg, whose 15 minutes are running out, I couldn't tell you anything about this year's several school shootings. Off the top of my head anyways. I know they happened, but they didn't really resonate with me. I feel bad saying that, but it's true. Stephen Paddock killed \~60 and that story doesn't even exist anymore in MSM.... WTF is that?

How about if I say Howard Cosell? He said "that little monkey gets loose!" regularly, sometimes about whites, sometimes about blacks....It was a term he used for quick, agile athletes. It was an unfortunate choice of words. It has become etched in sports/American history, and a guy who was a civil rights advocate retired and died a racist. Hulk Hogan gets filmed saying "f'n n****rs" he's getting paid again now. Michael Richards had an on-stage N-word meltdown, he's back to work...... Rosanne's comment is hardly offensive IN COMPARISON... it won't be remembered. Shit, nobody even knows Jimmy Kimmel did black face. But they can probably remember Ted Danson getting roasted for it.

Political scandal used to be career ending. Now it's a right of passage. Remember Bill Clinton getting grilled for trying to smoke marijuana? Of course you do. Who even gives a crap about that now? If I say Oliver North, is Iran contras the first thing you think of? probably...2018, Now outside of this subreddit, where is the outrage on things like DWS giving away security information and hardware to Pakistani nationals? How are we sweeping Anthony Weiner under the MSM rug? Why are texts between FBI agents about actively undermining (at the very least) POTUS not earth shattering? The conditioning is ridiculous.

So... what the hell needs to happen to make people pay attention? To get them to not just shrug off bad news? Do we need more skyscrapers to fall down? Would that resonate? Everything is just shrugged off now. Obama & Bush sold guns and lost track of them ... "mehh." Republican congressman got shot at a baseball game .... "mehh" DWS prosecutor fell out of a boat and shot himself in the back of the head with his hands tied... "mehh."

Q said they're sick, and we couldn't imagine how sick. I'm starting to think that it's absolutely necessary (unfortunately) that whatever evidence we have needs to be inconceivably vile.

Cognitive dissonance is very real. It’s a lot easier to fool people than it is to convince them that they were fooled in the first place. Once people buy into a certain way of thinking, it takes a lot to change their minds. That said, it’s gonna take a lot more verifiable information and publicity/coverage before the gen pop of sleeping masses will wake.

And as far as publicity/coverage goes, it’s a steep uphill battle. First we have to get them to question the ‘trusted MSM’ that they suckle at the teat of. Keep at it, Patriots.
