Great thread and a topic that is close to home for me,
Ive worked as a sales. marketing and PR consultant for the past 9 years. I was actually poached by a firm when they came into the company I was
working with to help with a restructure.
Those vids are great in that they make people aware of it being there but they dont go anywhere near far enough, the level of sophistication and
subtlety thats employed nowadays is absolutely mind blowing!!!!!!!
The company I worked for was a multi national, one of the biggest consulting agencies in its field in the world, we had 6 basic types of consultant,
all new employees started at the same place which was our main department that helped train sales people in things like NLP and body language etc
basically how to manipulate someone one on one wether by phone or in person. Then depending on your skill sets and interests you could move to other
Management training which is basically teaching someone how to manipulate a small group of people.
Next we had print media, how to manipulate people via images and wording.
Then onto radio and TV advertising, how to manipulate using verbal and visual clues without any interaction taking place.
PR, how to manipulate people into thinking what you want them to think about you
Branding, how to manipulate people to think about your product or service even when they dont need it.
Then there were a heap of niche areas with things like scent and colour placement, How to manipulate customers into doing your advertising for you,
How to get people to pay more for a product or service and get them to thank you for it (price elevation) the list goes on and on
The company never called it manipulate they used the term "Motivate"
I stayed with that company for 6 years and after 6 months I was practically suicidal (slight exaggeration there used for emphasis) when I came to the
realisation that pretty much the whole world is out to manipulate you and everything is a sale.
Basically the only people who are sort of immune are classed as sociopaths, not by my company but the people who had the characteristics of a classic
sociopath were less likely to be taken in by all the subliminal/psychological crap that goes on around them. Ironically they are also the ones best at
delivering this sort of stuff.
The methods used by big business goes way beyond what was touched on in those vids and I hate to think what goverments/military are capable of.
I gotta be honest, I dont think humanity has a chance against these people!!!
There are people who are aware of whats going on but nowhere near enough to make a difference.
Im sorta hoping that 2012 is going to bring a shift in conciousness that will make people immune to this sort of stuff because if something like that
doesnt happen it will take something like a meteor strike to dislodge these people from he top.
Star for you
