“If you don’t program your mind, it will be programmed for you”

"If you don’t program your mind, it will be programmed for you” is a saying that has been printed on many images. That is, if you do not think for yourself, then government and corporations will control you, as in George Orwell’s novel, Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949).

The saying is often shown on memes with an image of American comedian, civil rights and vegetarian activist Dick Gregory (1932-2017), but it’s uncertain if he ever said it.
