  • In a sense

    I'm not sure what society you're talking about specifically, but in my society, the United States, I think we've been being brainwashed for a long time, and still are. We've just never been encouraged to think critically about things. We're always told/taught what to think, rather than how to think, which I consider tantamount to brainwashing.

    We're encouraged in schools to stand in reverence and pledge allegiance to the flag before we're even taught why we owe our allegiance to it in the first place. We're told by every president that the United States is "exceptional", without any mention of what it is that we excel at. We're taught early on in our schooling that certain drugs are bad (marijuana, LSD, psylosybin, etc.) but are not told why they are bad, and nary a word is said of the harms of socially acceptable drugs such as alcohol, tobacco, oxycotin, or even pharmaceutical drugs that are often used in excess for recreational purposes, like children's cough syrup. Even in the media, we're often presented with a biased view of events, and they are often put through an ideological filter, and rather than presenting only facts the opinions of the reporter are reported along with it.

    I recognize that the above may sound dramatic because I'm calling it "brainwashing", but I concede that it is fairly mild brainwashing compared to what has gone on in the past or what still goes on in other parts of the world. But it's simply a fact that there is still some brainwashing that goes on in modern Western society, and it continues unchecked because we are all accustomed to it and it is so deeply fixed into our society that we never even notice it. But the fact that we do and believe things based on social conditioning rather than critical thought is a positive indication of brainwashing that still takes place in society.

  • Of course we are!!!

    We are constantly being led like blind sheep. Advertising, big capitalism, and yes religion..They are constantly trying to convince us that we need this or that, or hate others not like us....Convince us the next best thing to buy to be happy and ignoring everything around us that is Meaningful and beautiful like families, friends, pets, and this beautiful planet Earth we live on...The simple basic things. Don't go blindly. Resist the big sell. Live happier! Be kind and accepting of all life on this planet!

  • We are being brainwashed

    Everything from presidential elections to legalization of certain laws we are being told as a society what to think and it makes me sad because thinking for ourselves is no longer option. We are having others try to impose their beliefs on us and i am anything but okay with that.

  • Yes we are.

    With all the new brain studies they have done we have learned that the brain sends low frequency pulses of light to send signals to the body. Video game companies brag about how their games are addictive. Gambling gaming machine use the same type of system to get people to spend more money. All tv's monitors and gaming machines run on the same low frequency light that the brain uses. Different lights trigger the brain to produce a chemical similar to what drug users experience when using their drug of choice. That is an involuntary effect. Pundits sole purpose is to be opinionated. To promote the status quo opinion and to belittle the decent and critical thinking. By labeling people as anti American or conspiracy nut job, tin foil hats. If you try and debate a conspiracy theory on any website you will be called all of the above and more that we have all heard before on pundit shows like Hannity and Colmes, Bill O'Rielly, Rush Limbaugh..... The fact that you hear this over and over again and people use those terms learned from pundits proves it is working. Not to mention released documents like MK ULTRA, and project mockingbird it's really not a debate

  • Solidarity and Humanism

    There is an establishment, a society of those with power (chosen or born into) that try and control what we see, eat, hear and even think - and they do a very good job at it!

    The people at the absolute top - The Presidents, Prime Ministers, Bankers, Media/News, global business owners and a load of others share 2 things that unite them - power and greed!

    Why are we brainwashed?
    To create order, control and MONEY! We are all consumers to the establishment and their pockets.
    For example, did you know that 20% of the worlds wealth is owned by 5 families!? And 30% by 100 families...Pretty disgusting and unfair statistics if you ask me, especially when there is so much poverty in the world.
    Why such difference in equality when we're all in this together?

    Media/News
    A biased and unfair view is always coupled with anything to do with Race on the news. Why?
    To stir racial conflict, create barriers and to defy unity!
    Racism is man made, to prevent a revolution.

    If you're a racist, you have lost and they have won. Skin colour means absolutely nothing other than the scientific understanding - which is adaptation to certain climates...
    It's almost laughable at how much people succumb to such simple mindedness

    Wake up, guys. Understand the social system is wrong and that greed can no longer be ruling us. Open your mind and question today's way of life, question why it's so unfair and question why the planet is the way it is. I do, every day. It needs to change.

    The establishment is afraid of one thing, and that is SOLIDARITY! Every person uniting together, regardless of race, age, sex, sexual orietation or even your social class to form a majority!
    However, asking/hoping/praying for solidarity/world peace/equality isn't going to work - we need to fight

  • It depends on how you are defining brainwashing.

    It depends on how you are defining brainwashing.

    This is from Merrian-Webster.

    Definition of BRAINWASHING

    1. a forcible indoctrination to induce someone to give up basic political, social, or religious beliefs and attitudes and to accept contrasting regimented ideas

    2. persuasion by propaganda or salesmanship

    Is cultural imprinting really any different than forcible indoctrination?

    Cultural imprinting is the process whereby almost everyone in a particular culture acquires the customs and beliefs of the majority in that culture, especially those born into that culture.

    Is cultural imprinting the same as brainwashing as defined as forcible indoctrination?

    I guess that depends on your perspective. Children usually have no choice to reject the beliefs of their culture as children. Most will keep those beliefs even as adults.

    This is why it will take a very long time, if ever, to eliminate religious beliefs that are all based on superstitious dogma.

    Unless all people learn to question the validity of their beliefs, they will be victims of cultural imprinting or cultural brainwashing.

  • You're brainwashing your self!

    As children and still as adults we are told to follow our dream and when we become of age only we can decide for our selves what to believe, what religion to follow if any or who to vote for as an example. Those who believe brainwashing to be true are allowing it to happen to themselves. Spend less time thinking about how you are being brainwashed and more time on your own choices, that come from you and try not to think what influences it. Brain washing may not be real but influencing is.
