Propositions in Play

“No enlightened person wishes to be duped by his desires, his fantasies, his glands.” Gordon W. Allport

“All coercive techniques involve, on one level or another, frightening, or threatening, or intimidating a person, so that they move into survival mode.” Douglas Rushkoff

“If we understand the mechanisms and motives of the group mind, it is now possible to control and regiment the masses according to our will without their knowing it.” Edward L. Bernays

“Everytime you watch someone else doing something(or even starting to do something), the corresponding mirror neuron might fire in your brain…” Arleen Raymond

“I think the subject which will be of most importance politically is mass psychology….Although this science will be diligently studied, it will be rigidly confined to the governing class. The populace will not be allowed to know how its convictions were generated.” Bertrand Russell

“What we observe in the population today are the three destructive symptoms of persons whose minds are controlled by alien forces: 1. Amnesia, i.e. loss of memory. 2. Abulia, i.e. loss of will. 3. Apathy, i.e. loss of interest in events vital to one’s own health and survival.” Michael A. Hoffman II

“It would not be impossible to prove with sufficient repetition and psychological understanding of the people concerned that a square is in fact a circle. They are mere words and words can be molded until they clothe ideas in disguise.” – Joseph Goebbels

“We shall assume that what each man does is based not on direct and certain knowledge, but on pictures made by himself or given to him…But what is propaganda, if not the effort to alter the picture to which men respond, to substitute one social pattern for another?” – Walter Lippmann

“The notion of rational man, capable of thinking and living according to reason, of controlling his passions and living according to scientific patterns, of choosing freely between good and evil–all this seems opposed to the secret influences, the mobilizations of myths, the swift appeals to the irrational, so characteristic of propaganda.” – Jacques Ellul

“There are no facts.” – Michel Foucault

“You shall know the truth and the truth shall make you mad.” – Aldous Huxley

PsyWar, a nonpartisan documentary that everyone should see

PsyWar is a sterling debut documentary from writer-director Scott Noble. It is chock full of interviews with thinkers, historical background, and excellent narration by Mikela Jay.

 

This film explores the evolution of  Mainstream Media and Public Relations in the United States. It is one of my all time favorites. Enjoy!
