In the initial stages of nearly every recorded tyranny, the saucer eyed dumbstruck masses exhibit astonishing and masterful skill when denying reality. The facts behind their dire circumstances and of their antagonistic government become a source of cynical psychological gameplay rather than a source of legitimate concern. Their desperate need to maintain their normalcy bias creates a memory and observation vacuum in which all that runs counter to their false assumptions and preconceptions disappears forever. It is as if they truly cannot see the color of the sky, or the boot on their face. The concrete world of truth becomes a dream, an illusion that can be heeded or completely ignored depending on ones mood. For them, life is a constant struggle of dissociation, where the tangible is NOT welcome
The Facts Lose Value: The worst flaw of the slave is not necessarily his ability to overlook the truth, but his ability to see it, comprehend it, and then shrug it off anyway because it is contrary to his mission to fulfill his private delusions.

look at the hard core alcoholics and drug addicts as an example. these people are slaves to a substance. Evetnually, that reality becomes so depressing that they have to create lies to tell themselves just to get through the day. their delusions make them insane but, at the same time, it is the only thing that keeps them sane. Ask such a person why he or she is unemployed or alone for example. Chances are, they have a very elaborate story to explain their situation and it probably doesn't involve alcohol or drugs.
Addiction always begins due to self medication for mental illness or psychological trauma. Sometimes, it is not solvable or it can be something so bad/embarrassing that the person will never speak of it their whole life. Then they find a substance or activity that makes it go away temporarily and they feel free for the first time. There is nothing you can do to stop it until the initial problem is resolved and for many addicts, that is never.
