the battle for your mind.

this one is for it calls the game on groups like the jesuits, who as a group are oblivious to the methodologies that they apply, but nontheless are versant with the processes and use them at every turn.

the local priest is probably unaware of the effect of the mass on the congregation, but there are those in the higher offices of the church who are constantly refining the gig.

and someone paints those paintings with pentagrams in them for a reason.

That's actually a page I want to get back to. I love it when people discuss techniques.

In all of my mind control posts, I haven't really dealt on socio-psychological manipulation all that much (I started with the more exotic stuff). But I do plan on getting back to it.

well, brace yourself. we are living in a society based on this sort of thing, begining with small children.

and now that we are buying into the pharmaceutical approach we are going to see more assessments in the classroom.

personally, i fail to see how one can diagnose a.d.d. in children as young as 2 years old, but then i`m not a teacher.......

this stuff hits home with me because i saw it all in action as a child.

the jesuit father getting pissy with the precocious child and losing debates and then taking said child to be assessed by the boys in the white coats. (i felt like a labrat, let me tell you.) and upon finding out that i was merely bright.....he had a little huddle that he never really came out of regarding his oldest son.

so i have been hyper-vigilant ever since.

but it makes me good at my job. i can spot a subtle shift in skin tone or breathing or eye movement in a client from fifty feet away.

and it takes people-watching to a new level.
