Quote from: Mike Cl on August 09, 2019, 10:23:56 PMHad classes (at the Presido in SF) for about 6 mo. while in the active Army Reserve. This was in the mid-80's so I've forgotten much of it. But my unit was a Military Intel unit and so we were interested in how to read people and how to question people. It was one of the activities I liked while in that unit; forgotten much of it, of course. Too bad I did not keep the printed matter that we used.

Quote from: Baruch on August 09, 2019, 10:12:23 PMhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MQiMFs2SIFkExplained using NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming). This is how the majority of the people are daily being programmed by the authorities. Religion was a system for doing this, but not the only one. Ideology is another. Hitler talked to the German people (after having studied with a master hypnotist in the 20s).

Quote from: Cavebear on August 20, 2019, 12:13:16 PMOne might reference a reference more specifically. Or do you mention an odd word usage and just say "dictionary"?...
Quote from: Baruch on August 20, 2019, 02:00:30 PMoK ... what is neurolinguistic programming ..https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neuro-linguistic_programmingloose-goosy like any psychology, other than drugs.Or you can explain how you have a stronger will power, are more woke ... and so immune to consumer and government propaganda.
Quote from: Cavebear on August 20, 2019, 02:09:21 PMWell, at least it was a reference...And BTW, "yes". I have a stronger will power, and so immune to consumer and government propaganda. I just "am".
Quote from: Baruch on August 20, 2019, 02:22:23 PMYes, a god, not a demi-god ;-)I can attest, that consciously, I have always been immune to commercial advertising. I don't know why. An area of huge effort and research in applied psychology. Or am I convinced by advertising that I am immune to advertising? In propaganda, I am easily carried away. I want an enemy identified, so I can be directed who to kill (soldier thinking). My parents and grandparents were in WW II/WW I. I realize that is a weakness, so I learned to set this kind of thing, consumer or political, on the slow boiler, to see what would come of it.This is why I no longer support parties, but will rationally discuss the merits of individual candidates or policies. For example, why in 2008, Obama was a good risk or in 1992, Clinton was a good risk. But what most people do is by "brand". The fact that a candidate is supported by a particular party, is decisive. They don't care what the personality or proposed policies the candidate is promoting. Often because of cynicism. Hence, my non-vote for Trump. So for example ...Hillary Clinton 2016 ... Democrat (irrelevant), Bad Wife (relevant), Warmonger (relevant). Both major parties tend to kick up horrible candidates.
Quote from: Cavebear on August 20, 2019, 02:34:37 PMWhen provoked enough, you make good sense... But "bad wife"? C'mon dude, give her a break!
Quote from: Baruch on August 20, 2019, 02:45:37 PMI would have been more interested, had she divorced Bill. Only a bad wife would put up with that shit. Only a pure power mongering gold digger. I would have been forgiving of her had she murdered him. And I am not the only person who has said this. My own mother did. Most people here say ... she wasn't involved. That Bill Clinton or JFK can engage in as much irresponsible sex as the Epstein or the Marquis. Such behavior would have gotten any military member or contractor immediately fired. I don't accept that the Elite are above the law (nor morality, there is no such thing).And since 2016, with bipartisan support, Trump was converted into a warmonger. With factions baying for war with Russia or China.In our case, Churchill replaced Mufasa as a scare word.
Quote from: Cavebear on August 20, 2019, 03:47:56 PMSo much... First Trump wasn't "converted" to anything. He is the same consistently- true idiot now that he was when he was first elected by fellow idiots. I pity the fools but I also suffer from him. Actually, I have to rethink that. Trump doesn't actually cause "me personally"any harm other than ethical. I'm a single white old fart with money out of stocks right now.Second, it is none of your beeswax or mine about why Hillary stays with Bill. Maybe he is a stud or maybe he makes her laugh. But saying she is a "bad wife" is beyond sexism. Its "marriagism". Put THAT in your smoke and pipe it.
Quote from: Baruch on August 20, 2019, 05:08:28 PMAs you say. All Republicans are clones of Hitler's nose (movie Sleeper). As before, supporters of libertinism, support libertines. Hence, there is no morality. You have never been married. Very little to go on yourself.
