It is as preposterous to believe that all entertainment is hypodermic, to directly inject bad ideas into the innocent bloodstream of the passive masses, as it is to pretend that all behavior is mimetic and that our only models are Eliot Ness or Dirty Harry.

Edited for clarity.

(A) to directly inject bad ideas into the innocent bloodstream of the passive masses, as it is to pretend that
(B) to inject directly bad ideas into the innocent bloodstream of the passive masses, so it is to pretend that
(C) directly injecting bad ideas into the innocent bloodstream of the passive masses, so it is to pretend that
(D) directly injecting bad ideas into the innocent bloodstream of the passive masses, as it is to pretend that
(E) directly injecting bad ideas into the innocent bloodstream of the passive masses, as to pretend that
