    You really have to look at broad absolute unprovable statements about hypnotism as wishful thinking or suggestions and brush them aside when investigating it .:thumbsup:

    I think that we are confused beings generally, even if we cover up our confusion with certainty!
    That's why we are fertile ground for manipulation in religion, politics, fashion, what have you.
    Our problem is confusion, and the desire for solutions.

    How true, but can you blame them?

    I've given up watching Obama or any administration official say anything because to me they don't make sense. It is as if they are using The Confusion Technique to keep those who still listen to them in the Federal Trance.

    When Dick Cheny was asked about supporting torture, he replied ask "The families who lost loved one's in 911" This is the use of vivid emotionally laden imagery. When your emotions are turned on, you are more suggestible. This is a covert hypnotic technique.

    In Obama's early press appearances he would turn his head from side to side On recovering from mind control - recovering from covert hypnosis:

    To establish a trance state, one seeks to narrow the target's attention, towards one point, subtly towards the glint of the street pickpocket's gold earring...or towards one emotionally laden event, 911, towards the terrible act. the heinous crime...This fixates your attention upon ONE emotional idea. Then they will tell you what you are supposed to see and conclude and think. This is a covert hypnotic technique.

    The slow zoom in effect used for talking heads on TV, is also for this same reason, a covert hypnotic technique...

    To reverse hypnosis, one needs to widen one's field of view, to zoom out, to look at more data, more information, to place the single point, event, slogan, epithet, or key word into wider context, to place the data into perspective. - and perspective in this usage does not just include depth and field of view, in also includes depth of time...
    Perspective IS everything. It breaks trances, even abusive ones.

    Anything that narrows your attention even Candy Crush is hypnotic,.Hypnosis is part of life and is not itself evil, what is evil, is who controls your trance... If controlled by you or an ethical practitioner that is a good thing, it is useful, it is part of life.. If your trance is created and controlled by a sociopath without conscience, they will use their control of your trance, their control of what you perceive to be true, to make you their slave.

    George Estabrooks, the father of military hypnosis said in 1943, that the ONLY way to prevent having what you believe to be true manipulated by others is to become familiar with the techniques being used upon you.
    And MY use of repetition of that one sentence is a covert hypnotic technique so readers will remember what they have read...

    Here's a better link S&L:

    I liked this one:

    Everything is readable by putting the mouse over words, to access.

    While everybody and Hubbard refers to Freud,

    Boris Sidis was involved with Freud during the time period, and they studied together and compared notes.

    This is a interesting read, as well:
