    My initial critique stems first from the presentation. I will warn you I do want to criticize. The speaker is talking too slow. The video is obviously being applied to different still backgrounds and that is annoying me. I am so annoyed I cannot listen to what argument she is attempting to make.

    There are hypnotherapists who do perform hypnosis on people with a different agenda than my own. I feel hypnosis is a therapeutic tool and as such is to be used with discretion for the best and highest good for the one receiving hypnosis. To use it for alternate purposes, such as manipulating psychologically wounded people to be happy as a sexual submissive is unethical, morally wrong and a blatant misuse of hypnosis.

    Ya … but what do you really think Lori? :) I believe this video is sensationalized to generate subscriptions on YouTube … HOWEVER … it does raise some interesting points about modalities that could be construed as ‘mind control’.
    You raise some good points IMO of which I personally and professionally agree.

    (BTW this is what a Quoted Comment looks like)

    @Lori Seeborg – Well discussion is always good. Hopefully you weren’t too disturbed. :)
    That video definitely struck a cord with you didn’t it?

    Right.

    Well this is all true, but a little extreme. I get that she wants to wake people up and make them realize that anyone who wants, or has, total freedom will be an enemy of those in power and of the status quo. But the gun was perhaps a little too much..? I think what she is saying will have a greater effect if she is more grounded and stays away from aspects of brain washing which resemble conspiracy theories (such as the microchip in people’s brains).

    Anyways, she employs some light “brainwashing” herself as well, which I don’t really appreaciate considering what she is talking about (what’s with the panda in the background when she is talking about “pandering”?).

    I also wonder about her body language, as she employs a body language that is associated with someone who is lying, but I guess she could just be nervous…

    She also should have mention Pavlov’s dog experiment to a greater extent. The dog salvates because he associates the ringing of a bell with food. Because in the experiment he was always given food after the ringing of the bell, until it began having the effect of him salvating every time he heard it.

    Anyway, what she is saying puts the topic into a bigger perspective, but it is not really anything new. We all know that TV, games etc are a form of distraction and control and that food can be as well (hopefully).
