The Decoy Effect, or How to Win an Election

. . .And what should people do to avoid being manipulated by marketers and
pols? Don’t let salespeople tell you what issues to care about, and
don’t let candidates define one another.

More simply, think for yourself
and be wary if a difficult choice suddenly feels simple

If I’d actually written it, I would have been more concerned about not letting School or Church manipulate you by defining people and issues to their own advantage. 🙂
