Saw an Adam Curtis documentary series years ago called "the trap" well worth watching, its up on youtube.
The worrying thing is people are so easy to manipulate... that's the scary and equally depressing thing. How many of us can look back and see these
behaviors in ourselves, the lives we live, the clothes we wear, food we eat, places we socialize...etc. People are like audience members..when a few
people stand up to give a standing ovation to a entertainer on stage, everyone else stands up too, weather they all felt the performer warranted such
praise or not, your compelled to stand, such is the peer pressure, such is the conformity, such is the human mind. This is just one trivial example.
Breaking this automatic behavior is near to impossible. Because when people are in groups their behavior is most often controlled by the group, they
have lost a large part of their self control. The mind set of the group, or the few strong willed people in the group, control the masses.
