Conspiracy theory of the day

Yahoo News had a recent item about peer teaching of sexual education in Britain. The thought that came to mind when I saw this was a quote about the brainwashing of prisoners from "Propaganda: The Formation of Men's Attitudes" by Jacques Ellul:
A man placed in the above circumstances [being cut off from eveything] is subjected to a bombardment of slogans by radio or by fellow-prisoners, who, though prisoners themselves, shower him with reproaches and slogans because they already are on the road to their own reconstruction.
