Government and Political Conspiracies

Human Mental Susceptibility

Throughout time, there have been countless government and political conspiracies that have kept us wondering. This forum is dedicated to that very topic. Got a conspiracy theory of your own? Post it, and try to back it up as best you can!

I recently watched a couple videos that focused on the abilities of a certain individual named Derren Brown. He is some sort of hypnotist who showcases his talents by performing them on everyday people.
I have provided links to some of his videos below and I'm interested in getting some of your feedback on this. If genuine, this has truly affected the way I understand how advertising and the media affects our everyday life. How susceptible are we to those who control most facets of society? For instance, we all know that advertising is a powerful way of selling products... but do companies like Pepsi or McDonalds have offices (or perhaps laboratories) which research and employ tactics similar to sell their products? Or worse, do governments use these tactics to influence the public on who to vote for, what war to support, or ...???

Why on earth do you suppose the Pentagon placed personnel within CNN up to a year prior to 9-11? Why do you think the talking heads need to consult an EXPERT on everything form sliced bread to nuts?

People are very very very easily influenced, it's why you see so damn many commercials. Word of mouth and reading both died in the Fifties. It's been all about the senses ever since.

Sell the sizzle not the steak. I hope this makes some sense.

When you see something and question it, only to have a so called expert: Go out of their way to tell you what you're really seeing: Your bullshit meter should automatically kick into high gear. If it doesn't then you have only yourself to blame.

Sure they make mistakes while honing their blades: Remember this one:

" THIS IS NOT YOUR FATHERS OLDSMOBILE " Remember that slogan from a hotshot new up and coming ad agency?

It had a reverse effect: Why, because people really wanted their Father's Oldsmobile, they just didn't want to be seen as OLD FASHIONED. So when they tided that stigma to it the customers walked away in droves, it soon forced GM to drop the line. It only cost them a few BILLION DOLLARS. That my friend was the most successful yet unsuccessful ad in Advertising History. It wiped out one of the best car lines in History within 18 months. But I'm sure that's not what the braniac educated dweebs had in mind! :lol: :lol: :lol: Idiots!

How many teenagers ( over time ) did the Marlboro man INFLUENCE, or even kill by proxy?

Nothing on earth is as powerful as the human mind/brain. The PTB have been trying to control it for centuries. They are still in the stage of Influence, they are good at it. Some of their tools are dispensed by Medical Doctors, other by books or games on the web, of TV SETS. Sports, drugs, booze, porn all a form of Hypnosis.

Just my 2 cents!

Thats funny, I had no idea that was a nail in the coffin for them.

Your right though, we are easily infuenced by advertisements. You go ask anyone the question. "Does a pepsi commercial really make you want to buy a pepsi" and they say "no way, I'm not that easily influenced." However, the fact is, companies dont expect to to go buy a pepsi right after you see an advertisement. What they are doing is implanting information into your head via a campaign.
So the next time you think of something to drink, your mind will be greeted with an image like this:
Image
Kind of like Pavlov's Dogs....

However, If you take it one step further, you can influence the way a society views a certain subject. The most obvious example would be the drug dealers--I mean--companies. They have a drug for pretty much everything now. Turn on the TV or read through a magazine and with almost 100% certainty, you'll come face to face with a drug advertisement. Whether or not you interested in the drug, you still have taken a mental snap shot of the image. In addition, you have also associated the image with words in the advertisement, such as, "Finally" or "Get Help". Constant bombardment of this type employs a sort or mental programming. Over time, a person (or people) tend to believe that Medication is the answer to any or all problems. So we may see that the single advertisement, for any industry, may not be selling a product or idea, it is the complete campaign.
