I'm going to try one more time to spread a little enlightenment, but I have little hope of success.

How about spreading a little info with your clickable thread.

Lots of taters and no meat.

That's your opinion sir.

But after the way I've seen some of the threads intentionally being misled and redirected in the main forums I had to say something.

Seeing many of the older members falling for it as well, was surprising.

Here is a short 5 minute video by campkillcommentary.

It is an informative and entertaining synopsis of how edward bernays forged the basic principles of modern propaganda.

Enjoy,

Not opinion.

Is there a synopsis of the videos for people who maybe on phones and no video?

Perhaps an opinion about the videos?

Not a personal slam, just a generally excepted amount of info in a thread.

I expect those who understand where I'm coming from to pick up on it.

Those that don't Oh well.

for example, Mike did immediately and presented a much more up to date presentation.

The fact that its in a audio rap format and and a shooter game for visual reinforcement proves my point.

Sadly it only has 16,000 view. But a excellent example never the less.

The ability to drive the masses like a herd of sheep using propaganda is very easy, and in many cases easier than herding sheep.

So how do we use this for our own paranoid purposes?

Wasn't Bernays the one who helped to target women in the US to start smoking cigarettes?

Looked it up. Yep!

So how did bacon become associated with the American breakfast? Let me introduce you to the grand-daddy of public relations and advertising, Mr. Edward Bernays.

The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, and our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of…. It is they who pull the wires that control the public mind.

He does a good job conveying a lot of information quickly while keeping it simple and entertaining.

In that short 5 minute video he discusses,the woman smoker campaign,the breakfast campaign,the pro military campaign,the use of his tactics in exopolitics, and more.

If you have a lazy day I recommend his "my science vids" playlist. Lots of gems in there.

Anyhow I know this topic has quite a few threads on ats, but pop up threads like this are not a bad thing in my opinion. They bring old topics up for newer members who might then decide to do there own further research. Which is a good thing.

It seems as if Bernays was right.

Most people do have a herd mentality.

He just figured out a way to use it to his advantage.

Thanks Mike, as always.

And 3Dg, what disturbs me the most is seeing those theories put to the test here on ATS and being proven to be science fact.

Let me allude a little farther, most people here are very skeptical of most information, yet are unaware of their own subconscious actions which are textbook and very predictable.

I was just watching some AI on AI open debate.

Some of the statements, phrases, actions and reactions to statements were very profound.

As well, the facial expressions displayed by one AI in response to the other AI's statements.



What I'm wanting to see achieved, is the ability to create models that can and will accurately predict the actions of AI as well as determine if there are or will be patterns in their thought and logical reasoning processes.
