  • 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.

  • Everyone is being brainwashed...

    Why do you believe what you believe?

    How do you know what is true?

    Do you blindly trust the government and what they tell you?

    Do you believe the US military is "defending freedom" by deploying overseas for wars in the Middle East?

    Do you think politicians care for the general public?

    Do you think doctors and pharmaceutical companies think in our best interest or for profit maximization?

    Do you think people who think or believe different things are bad or evil?

    These are very simple yet critical questions and there are many more to ask.

  • Everything is a brainwash

    Ever since you have learned to be aware you have been brainwashed.
    There way of teaching kids is not doing any good! If you do something wrong you get punished or shouted at. If you don't do well on a test you think your not good enough. But if you do what they say you get rewarded with things. The media today. Girls looking online at the perfect body they 'should have' and it's considered what you should look like and they are wondering why they dont. Teenagers will do anything to fit the lines so they feel accepted. Its ridiculous!

  • It's all about the money.

    Just a theory, when social media was created, it was made just for the sake of people's fun. Take YouTube as an example, if you check older videos like Leek Spin, you can see they were all mainly just a joke. Old YouTube was all about short videos, and short videos that were worth a laugh. But then later on, it all changed.

    YouTube started to remove features. Then they added advertisements. Companies are starting to have YouTube channels, just to make ads for it. Sounds like YouTube is turning into a website where you just go, make videos, and earn money? Misleading people with astonishing-like titles when they're just a boring let's play? (clickbait) Just for the money? Since 2014 and on, YouTube turned from an underrated website where you uploaded random short videos just for the fun of it and because you were bored, to a website that's almost as populated as China, where the funniest YouTubers you watched in '08 turned into sellouts, misleading you, and treating you like a cash grab even if you have always admired them? Youtube is brainwashing us, with YouTube rewind every year, with the same YouTubers, and trying to make you think that they're good, funny, and nice, check them out, click on one of their videos, and find out that you just have been tricked and you have given at least a dollar to them.

  • We have all been rewhired and are sheep.

    Music, YouTube, social media, and commercials are saying we need to be like this, we need to have that, tv promotes unreal beauty standards, music promotes violence and only being in relationships for sex, social media is used to show that it's ok to look at porn ( like when you get a sexy pic ) YouTube sometimes promotes violence or unreal beauty standards and porn and everyone's brain is basically Swiss cheese because they never learn anything so they are easily manipulated, diverted, and diverted . This is why the world is fucked up and violent it's all thanks to your stupid ass tasteless uncreative music, your discusting urges getting the best of you, your stupid time wasting Instagram or whatever, and YouTube. It's hidden Propiganda. No one seems to change And only wise old people it seems who know how the world used to be don't get brainwashed, avoid it have you grandma tell you stories about how great it used to be because it's true.

  • We are getting our brains washed in soap which we cannot remove!!!

    But that statement is strange. You see Delvayne, you say the world is washing our brains eh? Well how about the world is putting dirt in our brains. It's up to us to wash it. CLEANSE OUR BRAINS WITHOUT WASHING THEM!!! I hope you understand what I mean. There are many ways of teaching us yet Human's choose the worst way?

  • Everything is a brainwash

    From the moment you start school is the moment "they" start re-programming you. They fill your head with restrictions saying "you can't do this". They teach you if you are "bad" or "disobedient" to "their" system you will be punished. And if your follow the system you will be rewarded. They are re-programming your way of thinking and restricting our minds. We are constantly being told what we can and can't do which leads to self-doubt. We as humans have the capability to access our entire minds, but because of the mass brainwashing from the media. Government, schools etc we have been taught to doubt our own abilities. The system is almost impossible to escape because we are trapped by the poisons they are constantly spraying in the sky, in our food, the poison they spread through the media and so called "education".

  • I work for the federal government

    This just a quick example. 2 weeks ago I sent out a emailed survey saying that diversity of sex and race has nothing to do with strength. I said race and sex should have nothing to do with hiring. A week later our whole office had stupid brochures on cultural diversity. They claimed that only smart people understand that strength is found in birth characteristic differences. I found this laughable because they spent extra money outside of typical emails to try to insult my independent thought. Why would you pentalize or favor people based on characteristics they cannot control?

    America has become a illogical nightmare esspecially for christian white heterosexual males. America has fallen. 3rd world here we come.

  • 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.

  • Secularism doesn't have room for brainwashing

    Because it's required to change it's position on finding new facts. Unlike religions who refuse to challenge their own ideas 'because holy book/person said so'. Brainwashing happens when you refuse to accept outside information as true, even if it has been proved to be. My European/Western society doesn't do that, theocracies do. Yes there are still some problems in the West, but I wouldn't call it 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.
