This seems to be a good site to start research.
Mind Control Index
In my breif searchings, I read how some have put to use less intensive forms of control from the mind control experiements. I lost the original site I
saw this on. It talked about controling a crowd by giving them only small number of choices with a set outcome already pre-determined.
This could be accomplished by breaking up a large group into smaller groups. The "leader" is already preped in what they need to do. They ask
leading questions trying to bring everyone to their point of view. If someone is against their pre-determined outcome and the leader can not change
that person's point of view, then the leader will start to subtly attack that person's character to discredit him in the eyes of the rest of the
In the event that there is not a concesus or too many seem to be going against the leader's outcome, the leader will suggest to take a blind vote.
Everyone will vote on paper, and a person who the leader has previously chosen will count the votes. No matter what vote count actually was, the
pre-determined will always win.
If you noticed, there is alot more small work groups in schools and at some larger work places.
In a larger group, the speaker will be trained not to specifically answer a question. They will talk so long the original question was forgotten. In
their talking, the person will start to weave away from the original subject until he is on a totally different subject, and the original question
will be totally forgotten. Unless the person stands up and calls the speaker on the tatic. Then the speaker will try to avoid again by saying they
already answered it, or saying we need to move on to the next question and/or concern. If the person insists the original question, the speaker will
try to subvertly get the person to become so frustrated and angry that their anger discredits the person asking the question in the eyes of others.
In the site I linked above, go below the bar and click on the article Battle for the mind. The person talks about how certain trained people such as
(unfortunatly) some evanglists and lawyers to name two use what is called a voice roll to entrench a point firmly in the minds of the people they are
A “voice roll” is a patterned, paced style used by hypnotists when inducing a trance. It is also used by many lawyers, several of whom are highly
trained hypnotists, when they desire to entrench a point firmly in the minds of the jurors. A voice roll can sound as if the speaker were talking to
the beat of a metronome or it may sound as though he were emphasizing every word in a monotonous, patterned style. The words will usually be delivered
at the rate of 45 to 60 beats per minute, maximizing the hypnotic effect.
In another part it talks about how music can be used to entrance people with the beat and tone of music. Now I know why I always hated going into
churches where they play different songs, but the beat was always the same. I always felt something wasen't right, but couldn't place a finger on
it. Unfortunatly, the musicians wouldn't really know what they were doing either. They were taught by someone else who more than likely didn't
reveal that certain fact. Where and how it started in some churches I don't know.
I suspect like the music, that some of these other techniques that people use were taught to them. The person implementing the techniques don't
really realize what they are doing or how it was affecting others. There is a main source, but who and why is the question.
As pointed out in one of the viedos I linked to, that repetition is and can be used. That could be used in media, especially if someone who has alot
of interviews keeps saying the same sentence that is aired. The reporter may not realize it, nor the public hearing it since it is more than likely to
be used in various formats and not in the same part of the speach. Right now I can think of the Barbarba Bush clip. Also think of advertising
"branding". Some wonder why every time they turn arouond they see certain ads.
I know that in and of itself is only the tip of the ice berg. I haven't been able to delve much deeper into the subject due to time constraints, and
the fact it seems much of the infomration has to be peiced together.
