Freud Was Used to Control the Masses

It is amazing how easily big business manipulates you to do what it wants, and, more often than not, fraudulently.

Have you ever wondered, like I do, how they are able to do it?

You may not be aware, however, at the heart of all this deception are experts like Edward L. Bernays, called the Father of Spin and the so-called inventor of public relations, who so deftly manipulated the perceptions of the public by taking advantage of the principles of psychology developed by his uncle, Sigmund Freud.

With that in mind, you'll want to set aside some free time to watch The Journey of the Self, the acclaimed 2002 BBC documentary by Adam Curtis.


Dr. Mercola's Comments:


You are part of the most conditioned, programmed culture the world has ever known. Not only are your thoughts and attitudes continually being shaped and molded, but your very awareness of the whole design seems like it is being subtly and inexorably erased.

The doors of your perception are carefully and precisely regulated. Who cares, right?

It is an exhausting and endless task to keep explaining to people how most issues of conventional wisdom are scientifically implanted in the public consciousness by a thousand media clips per day.

This four-part documentary does an excellent job of explaining how Freud's theories have been used by politicians and companies far and wide. Over the past century they have mastered the ability to engineer your consent and grow mass consumerism throughout the free world.

And, you certainly can't trust the mass media to learn the truth, as they do nothing more than confuse you with misinformation, all in the pursuit of the corporate bottom line. 

We have just seen too many examples where people are sacrificed for money. This isn't right and one of the primary purposes of this site is to help expose their fraud and awaken the consciousness of our culture.

On Vital Votes, biochemist Russ Bianchi from Soquel, California says:

"Never listen to someone who is a morphine addict for medical or mental advice, as Freud was reported to be, I guess is the take away message here ...

"Of course, along with keeping the figurative kevlar jacket zipped, beware advice when it comes to hidden profit motive agenda's from your Uncle Sam, or those supporting Uncle Sam's employees, through corrupt lobbying ...

"Rely on the person you see in the mirror to control your own health and own well being ..."
