From memory and Ive forgotten most but Im gonna mention anyway, maybe someone from the uk will know of the program Im talkin about.
The program found the most innocent ,nice,helpful man they could find, the kind of person that doesnt want to harm a bug much less a person.
The goal was to get him to confess to a murder he didnt commit, a murder that didnt even happen.
That was the show, step by step they f#ked his mind and changed his circumstances enough he thought he lost his mind and sure enuff the last show was him confessing to who he thought was the police to a murder that didnt happen.
Some people know how to mess with peoples minds, Bernays was just the beginning.
Absolutely people can be misled, they can be twisted and molded to believe almost anything.
And as this show proved, ya dont even gotta start before they're 5 yo.
Anyone see that show? it was from the uk somewhere and I forgot its name?
It's on Netflix, a special by 'mentalist' Darren Brown called Push (or 'Pushed to the edge')
This guy puts out some awesome materiel all based around influencing, he is from the UK but most of his material has been release in NA also.
They/he actually did this experiment on several people, the one they based the show around was the only one who they couldn't push to commit (what the subject thought) was murder, the other 3 were pushed to commit a "murder". It's not his best work, but perhaps his most provocative.
