I feel your vibe; although I don't believe your post will be popular.
Deep inside, most of us don't really know ourselves. Public education, media manipulation, and pop culture train us not to think for ourselves. Instead we tend to seek approval and toe the company line or else... we won't be 'cool' or 'in step with everyone.' And for the intellectuals, we're swayed to 'appear right', or seek 'being admired' or else we imagine our ego being somehow bruised rather than trying to win in the game of life - which is trying to save our soul in this crazy world. Perhaps simplicity in reality is what Jesus was referring when speaking of being like little children to enter into Heaven...
I see your point - 'whose to benefit,'/ 'whose to gain' is an approach to start having mental discipline and being open to the sad reality that behind many organizations (political or religious) our best interest is not their aim...but theirs.
Ironically, with the alternative media gaining more attention, I'm sensing that there's a fair percentage of non Catholics who sense something is really wrong and 'evil' with the world; although they may not be able to put a finger on it.
(sorry about digressing)... but from my initial thought; posts like yours don't gain a lot of traction, because it takes work and a lot of mental processing to dig and think - seeing reality 'as it is' rather than interpreting events according to how we want to see them; potentially falling prey to a 'cult' mentality. Which may not harm if all is going well, but during chaos and confusion, it can put us in a position to succumb to outside/inside ~ political/religious forces who are overtly against us... and the 'vibe' I sense from your OP is that attempting to come to terms with reality... or changing cultural norms, may remove the fog and actually help one to creatively find ways to exploit the situation (rather than succumb to it) in a rational manner...that is in removing barriers so grace can work in your soul.
