Brainwashing were the tactics that the Chinese communist party used to frighten people into mindless bodies. It’s called the hypnotic process and there are serious applications to it.
The process was intended to change the mind entirely so that its owner became a breathing puppet, a human-robot, without the atrocity being evident from the outside.
It wasn’t the first time fears of Communism and mind control had leaked into the American public. In 1946 the US Chamber of Communism was so concerned about the spread of Communism that it aimed to remove liberals, socialists and communists from places like schools, libraries, newspapers and entertainment.
And it wasn’t until three years into the Korean War when American prisoners of war started confessing to boorish atrocities.
When Colonel Frank Schwable was shot down over Korea and captured in 1952, he was the highest-ranking military officer to meet his fate, and by February 1953, he and other prisoners of war had erroneously admitted to using germ warfare against the Koreans, dropping everything from anthrax to the plague on unsuspecting noncombatants.
The American public was appalled and became even more so when 5,000 of the 7,200 POWs either petitioned the US government to end the war or signed confessions of their alleged crimes but the final surprise came when 21 American soldiers refused repatriation.
Suddenly the threat of brainwashing was quite real, and it was everywhere and the US military dismissed the charges made in the soldier’s confessions, but couldn’t justify how they’d been forced to make them.
And the idea of mind control thrived in pop culture, with films like Invasion of the Body Snatchers and The Manchurian Candidate, showing people whose minds were washed and controlled by outside forces.
And by 1980 even the American Psychiatric Association had given it credence, including brainwashing under dissociative disorders in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders III.
Had the Chinese and Soviet Communists actually uncorked a device or method to rewrite men’s minds and supplant their free will? The short answer is no, but that didn’t prevent the US from flooding resources into combatting it.
The basics are that brainwashing is designed, and now every show is driving the social agenda, and it’s always the same, it’s always the strong female, the beta male and the strong alpha male, and it’s the modern feminist utopia.
So, throw out your TV, you’ll be much happier, there will be less pressure and the mind will be calm. Appreciate the little things in life, accept people as they are, without bias and discrimination because the TV gives you superficial and arbitrary standards of beauty, morality and pleasure.
I’m not here to convert anyone, but try it and see how you feel. If you like it, then continue, otherwise, you can simply turn the TV back on.
The human species is being brainwashed and who controls the news? And this is why we need to be TV free so that we can clear our minds of all propaganda. Go read a book, walk, run, knit, or play a board game – take up a screen-free hobby.
It’s a well-known fact that we watch way too much TV because television controls us psychologically and physiologically. It controls how we create and see, sitting in front of our TV screen entranced by a flashing screen.
The TV doesn’t allow you to think for yourself and the advertisements are there to mechanically dumb you down. It gets into your subconsciousness and is a kind of mind control that manipulates your beliefs and behaviours and influences the brains chemistry.
Television can and does brainwash us and countless people who follow the news don’t realise that it’s all propaganda and they repeat their talking points everywhere they go. Furthermore, commercials are effective in getting people to purchase their commodities and if you think about it, if they weren’t effective, companies wouldn’t continue to waste money on them.
And television brainwashes us because it acts on the people watching. People see advertisements on the television and start to believe they have to have the things that are advertised and people are quickly influenced by what they see.
And television programming frequently strives to drive the envelope as to what is acceptable and not acceptable in society.
What is seen on TV is generally not accepted in society, but the more it’s viewed, the more people start to accept it.
Usually, this is done through humour or through exaggerated behaviours, and as we view these programmes over and over we become desensitized to them – things like violence, profanity and other behaviours that our grandparents would have raised their eyebrows over.
We can see this even in the influence of certain programs, like Mad Men which have shaped us and other sectors of our lives. Even though there are some people that possibly don’t mind the television transforming society through its distortion of everyday life, others see it as an adverse aspect of TV.
