SAN DIEGO -- A San Diego man is creating quite a stir online with his YouTube videos, in which he exposes how easily manipulated people are when asked to take part in a good cause.

In a recent video titled "Male Privilege Tax," Mark Dice encourages young adults to sign a bogus petition that he says would tax men 10 percent more than women to offset wage inequality.

To grab their attention, he uses "buzz words" and phrases, such as describing the petition as meant to "fight sexism in this new world order."

Dice was surprised to find all the men and women who stopped to hear his spiel sign it.

His YouTube videos have gone viral. Some have been aired on Fox News and featured on the Drudge Report.

Dice hopes the videos will force people to think critically before they jump on a bandwagon for a supposedly good cause. He also encourages young adults to ask questions and think twice, as he has seen them as the group most likely to be manipulated.
