George Orwell, 1984

In a way, the world-view of the Party imposed itself most successfully on people incapable of understanding it.

They could be made to accept the most flagrant violations of reality, because they never fully grasped the enormity of what was demanded of them, and were not sufficiently interested in public events to notice what was happening. 

By lack of understanding they remained sane. They simply swallowed everything.
