Again another wonderful observation from you but then it has been going on for centuries and this is not confined to just economics or politics. I have come across many people say, when they like some book very much and use it as a reference manual for many things in life ' this my bible'. Why not this is my Veda,Upanishad or Gita? The propaganda and brain washing have penetrated our subconsciousness itself and operates as a malign cancer. But many myths and irrelevant rituals thrive on this.
I have posted the following as comments at http://centreright.in/2012/01/

The west cannot understand anything without Branding and labeling with some nomenclature, then trying to generalize everything within its decided label and follow it up by homogenizing it and where there is either no opposition or meek opposition then resort to hegemonising.
It they find certain things which do not fit into their presumed and pet labels then they resort to labeling those as another group but which must be necessarily not just different but inferior and therefore to be branded as something derogatory.
You will see this pattern in all aspects of their life be it their religion, economic systems, social cultures, political systems, personal behavior etc.
They fail to realize that variety is the inherent and inevitable law of nature.

But they have been carrying this out as a well developed subject called
Psychopolitics. What is Psychopolitics?
Psychopolitics is the art and science of asserting and maintaining
dominion over the thoughts and loyalties of individuals, officers,
and masses and the effecting of the conquest of all others through "mental/psychological healing."
The subject of Psychopolitics breaks down into several categories,
each a natural and logical progression from the last. Its first subject
is the constitution and anatomy of man, himself, as a political organism.
The next is an examination of man as an economic organism, as
this might be controlled by his desires. The next is classification of
State goals or religious goals for the individual and masses. The next is an examination of loyalties. The next is the general subject of obedience. The next is the anatomy of the stimulus-response mechanisms of man. The next is the subject of shock and endurance. The next is categories of experience. The next is the catalyzing and aligning of experience. The next is the use of derogatory labels, pressures, collective boycotting, tortures, terrorism either promoted through religious or political or economic identity or ideology and so on. All in very simple terms manifestations of intolerance whatever be the name we may give to them . The next is the use of implantation. The next is the general application of Psychopolitics by spreading its octopusian tentacles The next is the organization and use of counter-Psychopolitics. The next is the use of Psychopolitics in the conquest of unwilling and non co- operating inferior folks. The next is psychopolitical organizations everywhere with some willing local participants who are capable of operating with hidden agenda.The next is the creation of slave philosophy in a hostile territories making yu slaves not necessarily always physically but economically, psychologically and socially. The next is countering anti-psychopolitical activities and the final one, the destiny of psychopolitical rule in a so-called scientific age. To this might be added many subcategories, such as the nullification of individual rights and many other better options etc
The Psychopolitics is more effective particularly when used in a nation decayed by pseudo-intellectualism in academics, national betrayal in politics, corruption in economic activities, cultural degradation in social life etc and in this environment exploitation of the masses by using psychopolitical actions is very easy and effective. It starts as brainwashing and ends up subverting a whole lot of people.
And this technique has been proved effective by both communists and Christianity.
