The science of public manipulation and propaganda is very well studied. Here is the best short video I've found on the subject. This video talks about Edward Bernays.



Just so you understand the importance of Edward Bernays in World history, Joseph Goebbels had Bernay's books on his bookshelf.

Edward Bernays pivotal work: Propaganda (PDF)

Please post any good videos or books you have on the subject of public manipulation and propaganda (aka Public Relations).

The only way not to be affected by the propaganda is to be aware of its existence.

Good stuff.

Not too aware of any good videos, but know of some good books.

Harry Lasswell’s Propaganda techniques in the World War is a good one.

I think George Creel’s writings are particularly interesting, because he was the head of Wilson’s propaganda wing, and was instrumental in implementing propaganda as a better means of altering Public opinion instead of censorship. A good one is here

Anything by Orwell.

And lest not forget Dr Day ‘Everything Is In Place And Nobody Can Stop Us Now’

The following is an abbreviation:

1. Everything is in place and nobody can stop us now.

2. He [Dr Day] indicated that there is much more co-operation between East and West than most people realise.

3. Most people don’t understand how governments operate and even people in high positions in governments don’t really understand how and where decisions are made.

4. People who really influence decisions are names that for the most part would be familiar to most of us, but he would not use individuals’ names — people of prominence who were primarily known in their private occupations.

5. His purpose in telling our group about these changes that were to be brought about was to make it easier for us to adapt to these changes.

6. One of the statements had to do with change. “People will have to get used to the idea of change, so used to change, that they’ll be expecting change. Nothing will be permanent.” This in the context of a society where people seemed to have no roots or moorings, but would be passively willing to accept change simply because it was all they had ever known.

7. “People are too trusting, they don’t ask the right questions.”

8. “Everything has two purposes. One is the ostensible purpose which will make it acceptable to people and second is the real purpose which would further the goals of establishing the new system.

9. Numbers of people living at any one time on the planet must be limited or we will run out of space to live. We will outgrow our food supply and pollute the world with our waste.

10. People won’t be allowed to have babies just because they want to. Some people would be allowed only one, however outstanding people might be selected and allowed to have three.

11. Contraceptives would be displayed more prominently in drug stores, right up with the cigarettes and chewing gum. Contraceptives would be advertised and also dispensed in the schools in association with sex education!

12. Sex Education is a tool of world government. Many cities in the United States by this time have already set up school-based clinics, which are primarily contraception, birth control, population control clinics.

13. Now back in 1969, four years before Roe vs. Wade, he said, “Abortion will no longer be a crime.” 14. “People will be given permission to be homosexual.” 15. Clothing would be more stimulating and provocative. Bras would be thinner and softer allowing more natural movement.

14. Divorce would be made easier and more prevalent. More people will not marry. Unmarried people would stay in hotels and even live together. That would be very common.

15. More women will work outside the home. More men will be transferred to other cities and in their jobs, more men would travel. Therefore, it would be harder for families to stay together. This would tend to make the marriage relationship less stable. Travel would be easier, less expensive, for a while, so that people who did have to travel would feel they could get back to their families…. Rather a diabolical approach to this whole thing!

16. Everybody has a right to live only so long. The old are no longer useful. They become a burden. Some things that would help people realize that they had lived long enough, e.g., the use of very pale printing ink on forms that are necessary to fill out. Older people wouldn’t be able to read the pale ink as easily and would need to go to younger people for help.

17. Automobile — there would be more high-speed traffic lanes that older people with their slower reflexes would have trouble dealing with and thus, loses some of their independence.

18. The cost of medical care would be made burdensomely high. Medical care would be connected very closely with one’s work but also would be made very, very high in cost so that it would simply be unavailable to people beyond a certain time.

19. The young would become agreeable to helping Mom and Dad along the way, provided this was done humanely and with dignity. Then the example was – there could be a nice, farewell party, a real celebration. Mom and Dad had done a good job. Then after the party’s over they take the ‘demise pill’.

20. There would be profound changes in the practice of medicine. Overall, it would be much more tightly controlled. “Congress is not going to go along with national health insurance, it is now, abundantly evident. But it’s not necessary, we have other ways to control health care”. Costs would be forced up so that people won’t be able to afford to go without insurance. People pay for it, you’re entitled to it. Your role being responsible for your own care would be diminished.

21. The insurance company, paying for your care, does not pay that same amount. If you are charged, say, $600 for the use of an operating room, the insurance company does not pay $600; they only pay $300 or $400. You would feel grateful for insurance.

22. Identification would be needed to get into the building. The security in and around hospitals would be established and gradually increased so that nobody without identification could get in or move around inside the building. Theft of hospital equipment, things like typewriters and microscopes and so forth would be ‘allowed’ and exaggerated; reports of it would be exaggerated so that this would be the excuse needed to establish the need for strict security until people got used to it.

23. This need for ID would start in small ways: hospitals, some businesses, gradually expand to include everybody in all places! 26. It was observed that hospitals can be used to confine people and for the treatment of criminals.

24. The image of the doctor would change. No longer would he be seen as an individual professional in service to individual patients. The job is to include things like executions by lethal injection. The image of the doctor being a powerful, independent person would have to be changed. He went on to say, “Doctors are making entirely too much money. They should advertise like any other product.”

25. Lawyers would be advertising, too.

26. The solo practitioner would become a thing of the past. Most doctors would be employed by an institution of one kind or another. Along with that, of course, unstated but necessary, is the employee serves his employer, not his patient.

27. He said there would be new diseases to appear which had not ever been seen before. Would be very difficult to diagnose and be untreatable – at least for along time. No elaboration was made on this. I now think that AIDS probably was a manufactured disease.

28. Cancer. He said, “We can cure almost every cancer right now. Information is on file in the Rockefeller Institute, if it’s ever decided that it should be released. Ultimately the cancer cures which were being hidden in the Rockefeller Institute would come to light because independent researchers might bring them out, despite these efforts to suppress them. But at least for the time being, letting people die of cancer was a good thing to do because of the problem of overpopulation.

29. He said, “There is now a way to simulate a real heart attack. It can be used as a means of assassination.” Only a very skilled pathologist who knew exactly what to look for at an autopsy, could distinguish this from the real thing. 33. People would have to eat right and exercise right to live as long as before.

This "Dr Day" character is not only cold and heartless, but I'd be willing to bet that he believes that he won't be held to any of these points. At the very least he'd be in the know and could take measures to live his life outside of the rules he thinks everyone else should be living under.

He sounds like a dangerous and twisted psycho to me and that list reminds me of the 45 Communist Goals for the takeover Of America. If he's still alive, they can begin reducing the population by starting with him and everyone else who would follow his advice.

One of the propaganda tools used in everyday interactions is cognitive dissonance. We think about it as an internal mechanism to protect our values/belief systems. Accepting/rejecting ideas that don't fit with our overall mind set. But it also a tool that is used against you with regards to advertising, and social conditioning. I know that most have heard of the term and understand it, but it never hurts to revisit how it effects you. How it shapes your thoughts and beliefs on a daily basis.

This Ted Talk covers cognitive dissonance as well as confirmation bias. It couples the two together. The beginning is a little bit of personal storytelling. The examples of how it is used against you daily starts at around the 10 minute mark.



Thanks,

I agree but sadly I think they will get their way because far too many people dont know and or dont care for us to stop it from happening.

While the US is already sliding faster and faster into that great big dark abyss of tyrrany, we are all sliding down into it. I reckon it will take 200 - 300 years before there is ufficient effort to start climbing out of it back into the sunshine of freedom.
