Is Brainwashing Real?
« on: January 07, 2018, 04:39:04 PM »

Has anyone seen the documentary, "The Brainwashing of My Dad." With relationship to what's going on in both the liberal and conservative media, as well as the insanity of the Trump phenomenon, it truly struck a cord with me. I believe that the media is brainwashing us, from both sides of the aisle. From Fox to CNN we are being spoon fed all sorts of half truths and propaganda that rots the brain. These news people have little to no integrity anymore. Is this affecting the minds of people making them more angry and hateful? I'm interested in what you guys think.

Something Tony Warren used to say is that "a lie unchallenged and repeated, soon becomes the truth." That's basically what brainwashing is. Something drilled into your mind that isn't factual.  I haven't seen the documentary, haven't even heard of it, but I do know that there is brainwashing (if that's what you want to call it) in the media. I have witnessed it first hand from conservative media on issues and from liberal media on issues. If I'm being fair, I would have to say (sadly) more from the right with facts that aren't even close to facts.

You might as well ask is deceiving real. Of course it is. Another phrase for being brainwashed is being deceived. It's the same thing. The more clever the deceiver, the easier it is for him to brainwash you.

I have seen it (it's free on Amazon prime) and whether you are liberal or conservative, black or white, Republican or Democrat, I would say it is required viewing. At least if you are intelligent. It's sad really that Americans are so dumb.

 :iagree:
Thanks Beechwood, just saw it. Anyone watching it I would suggest watch it all the way through. It gets better the longer it goes. The documentary is a little partisan and biased, but all documentaries are in my view. Informative viewing.
