    It’s similar to insanity - if you’re truly insane, you’re not aware that you are.

    Absolutely. No one chooses to be brainwashed. But it takes a lot of work and therapy to undo brainwashing because a vital part of the programming is convincing the victim that what they are being taught is true.

    I would say that's generally true.  For example a common misconception is that the people who join cults are those who are of low intelligence and easily swayed.  In reality, the majority of cultists are those who are well educated and so they don't believe they can be fooled.
