Its fairly straightforward - The people in power put in hints and references in things in a variety of ways to expose secrets unknowingly to the pubic.
This has an interesting psychological effect where people being shown these things in vague sort of childish ways in media then lessens their ability to properly notice the reality of it, its almost like a spell, a perception filter.
Basically Human suffering and great societal secrets are then re-jigged and re-purposed into entertainment for the masses, very much like how dead farm cows are ground up into food for the the rest of the herd... That was even referenced in a movie called cloud atlas where instead of cows it was human clones.

Observe clip below, taken from movie "The Faculty" (1998) - This reference is more or less unique in that it references the concept of referencing, very few things have done this, and never generally so clearly and concisely. Watch out for it -
Real Dreams, Bodysnatching Parasites, Cloning, Transferring consciousness to new bodies - These are the things that you must learn to see, and then soon you'll start to see them all the time, referenced in nearly everything.
People use Doing This as a way of excusing being punished for their crimes, saying they they Did tell us what was happening, and that its our fault for not noticing.
"We hold these truths to be self evident"
