An analysis of the manipulative effects of television on people and society in general

The Content of Discontent A Not-So-Hidden Health Threat There is an already pervasive and rapidly expanding force of disease that no doubt affects you on a daily basis. It is a potentially harmful force that many people, quite frankly, cannot resist and may actively seek exposure to like an unknowing addict. I am talking about electronic media which includes the news media, televisionsocial media, email, and the internet in general. Many will, of course, immediately argue that electronic media is not all harmful and point to its many efficiently informative and individually empowering aspects.

Are Your Thoughts Your Own? Why do so many people call for a police state control grid? A major component to a full understanding of why this kind of governmental and corporate corruption is to discover the modern science of mind control and social engineering.

It's baffling to merely glance at the stacks of documentation that this world government isn't being constructed for the greater good of humanity.

Although there are a growing number of people waking up the reality of our growing transparent soft cage, there seems to be just enough citizens who are choosing to remain asleep. Worse yet, there are even those who were at least partially awake at one time but found it necessary to return to the slumber of dreamland.

This is no accident; this is a carefully crafted design. The drive to dumb down the populations of planet earth is a classic art that existed before the United States did.

One component to understanding and deciphering the systems of control is to become a student of the magicians of influence and propaganda. In order to defeat our enemies or dictatorsits imperative that we understand how they think and what they believe in. When people think about mind control, they usually think in terms of the classic "conspiracy theory" that refers to Project MkUltra.

This program is a proven example of 'overt mind control.

In reality the CIA had other objectives. An earlier aim was to study methods 'through which control of an individual may be attained'. The emphasis of experimentation was 'narco-hypnosis', the blending of mind altering drugs with carefully hypnotic programming. A crack CIA team was formed that could travel, at a moments notice, to anywhere in the world.

Their task was to test the new interrogation techniques, and ensure that victims would not remember being interrogated and programmed. All manner of narcotics, from marijuana to LSD, heroin and sodium pentathol the so called 'truth drug' were regularly used.

Despite poor initial results, CIA-sponsored mind control program flourished. Its scope was broader than ever before, and only those in the top echelon of the CIA were privy to it.

Dear Twitpic Community - thank you for all the wonderful photos you have taken over the years. We have now placed Twitpic in an archived state. One “advantage” of working in psychiatry is getting a window into an otherwise invisible world of really miserable people.

Many of these sub-projects dealt with testing illegal drugs for potential field use. Others dealt with electronics. One explored the possibility of activating 'the human organism by remote control'. Throughout, it remained a major goal to brainwash individuals to become couriers and spies without their knowledge.

When it was formed inthe CIA was forbidden to have any domestic police or internal security powers. In short, it was authorized only to operate 'overseas'. Precisely how extensive illegal testing became will never be known.

Despite these precautions some documents were misfiled and came to light in the late 's. They laid bare the spy agency's cynicism. Despite the widespread knowledge of MK Ultra and the civil lawsuits that followed, this form of behavior modification is not the most expansive.

The real dangers are the types of thought control that are 'covert' and not the subject of several dozen Hollywood movies like "Clockwork Orange" and Mel Gibson's "Conspiracy Theory. One challenge was laying down the groundwork or a free society without knowing what kind of technological advances would be made.

Who would have guessed in those times that we needed an article in the bill of rights that specifically prohibits the government and it's associates from engaged in mind control or thought control. The closest item that promises our protection from the government is the 4th Article in The Bill of Rights which states, "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

One of the most common examples of mind control in our so-called free and civilized society is the advent and usage of the television set.

This isn't to say that all things on TV are geared towards brainwashing you. But most of the programming on television today is run and programming by the largest media corporations that have interests in defense contracts, such as Westinghouse CBSand General Electric NBC.

This makes perfect sense when you see how slanted and warped the news is today. Examining the conflicts of interest is merely glancing at the issue, although to understand the multiple ways that lies become truth, we need to examine the techniques of brain washing that the networks are employing.Moderated regression analysis showed a significant relationship between realism and general materialism variables but no interaction; perceived realism correlates with general materialism regardless of level of advertising of television exposure.
