I'm assuming that this is the psy ops training manual?
I trained around psy ops guys. Most of my company in basic training were psyops.. We were a weird mix of dudes who all had clearences for one reason
or another, and the only non infantry going through basic at FT Benning. I think we were the last ones through actually..
In any case of course psychological operations/manipulation/mind control all exist and are all used all the time..
There is no escaping it.
So critical thinking is KEY
that's from your link.. It's the basic rundown on how these things work.. It's not just like sending down leaflets that say surrender.. It's way more
developed.. You won't know it's happening.. Their techniques are steps above regular propaganda.. Propaganda is basically spreading lies that look
true.. psychological operations can be multistep if this happens then say this if that happens go to page c ahh on page c do this but target audiance
is now angry, calm them this way, but now thye've lost some of the programming go to page f...
Their are Army guys ALL over the internet.. You know at least the ones I talked to were focusing all their sock puppet and honeypot efforts on
terrorists, but I'm sure if they aren't someone else is on duty stateside..
that's the organized brand..
Each and every one of you is your own version of a propaganda machine using psychological operations constantly some of these are called social norms
and pier pressure.. Some are called "opinions"
