Same Day As Batman Shooter - Local Medical School Was Running The Exact Same Drill

On the exact same day and just 13.4 miles away from where the Batman shootings took place a drill was to happen at Rocky Vista University College of Osteopathic Medicine. According to the Denver Post this drill had as it’s scenario a gunman shooting up people in a movie theater, and use bombs in the attack. The Dean of the college Bruce Dubin stated that "the irony is amazing, just amazing".

A little too "amazing" seeing that around staged terror attacks there are usually "drills" being setup and or run at the same time of the terror attack. This is in case the mission gets compromised in which case the handlers of the mission can just claim it was part of the drill - plausible deniability.
Of these the most influential is what is called "education." Religion plays a part, though a diminishing one; the press, the cinema, and the radio play an increasing part. What is essential in mass psychology is the art of persuasion. If you compare a speech of Hitler's with a speech of Edmund Burke, you will see what strides have been made in the art since the eighteenth century. What went wrong formerly was that people had read in books that man is a rational animal, and framed their arguments on this hypothesis. We now know that limelight and a brass band do more to persuade than can be done by the most elegant train of syllogisms. It may be hoped that in time anybody will be able to persuade anybody of anything if the can catch the patient young and is provided by the State with money and equipment.
