Subliminal Messages in Advertising: How They Affect Your Mind

  • This change in brain activity puts your mind in a dream-like state and thus it turns off the higher critical functions of your brain. Being in this trance state can be disempowering, because your mind can easily be manipulated into accepting any message as truth. This is why TV is so effective for manipulating your mind.

P. L. Chang, The Mind Unleashed

2015/05/subliminal.jpgMay 29, 2015 | Have you ever wondered why we are so addicted to sex, drugs, food, fear, and violence? Are these addictions natural or have we been conditioned to become addicted to these things? If you understand how subliminal messages are used in advertising, you may agree with me that addictions are often not natural because they are usually the results of conditioned behaviors.

Since the day you were born, you have been bombarded with all types of negative subliminal and non-subliminal messages. Many companies created these messages to specifically target your subconscious mind, so that they can manipulate your mind to a certain point. Because of their subliminal tricks, they have slowly conditioned you to behave the way that they want you to behave.

The tactics of planting stories, seeding distrust, and releasing information out of context are the most effective methods of subtly manipulating the American people. When the US media refers to foreign outlets as propaganda outlets or state-run media, remember it’s a case of pot meeting kettle.

Fake%20Media.jpgMay 25, 2015 | If you’re reading The Anti-Media, you already know the US media is worthless, but how can you explain it to those that don’t know? We’ve pulled together some simple illustrations that are easily verifiable so you can demonstrate to mainstream media followers exactly how subtly they are being manipulated.

North Korea conducts nuclear missile test

 

Every once in a while the North Koreans launch a missile out into the ocean to test its capabilities and make a statement about how they’re needed to defend against US aggression. It’s always framed as an extremely provocative act. It certainly is when compared to the fact that the US hasn’t engaged in such tests since the 1950s right? Except, the US engages in the exact same type of temper tantrum nuclear missile tests. When was the last time the US tested a delivery system in a provocative manner? This week. The discussions about the Nuclear Proliferation Treaty didn’t go as planned, so the US pouted and then tested a Minuteman II InterContinental Ballistic Missile. The NPT conference chided the United States on violating international treaties on WMDs. You remember, the justification the US used to justify the invasion of Iraq? Didn’t hear about that? That wasn’t international or national news?

Justin King: My goal as a journalist is simple: to document the world and maybe in the process, make it a little better.

Sunday, May 3, 2015 | It was hard to be especially angry when the news broke last week that Jake Tapper would be taking over as host of CNN’s Sunday show “State of the Union,” replacing Candy Crowley, who stepped down as anchor last year. Tapper is, after all, one of the more interesting, sharp and watchable people on television. He could actually inject some much-needed life into the eternally dismal Sunday current affairs landscape.

If his ascension to the Sunday throne isn’t a cause for outrage, though, it still provides a depressing look at the cringeworthy lack of diversity in much of our elite media. Taken together with the recent promotion of John Dickerson to replace Bob Schieffer at “Face the Nation,” the Tapper news means that all five major Sunday shows will now be hosted by white men.

Here’s the breakdown.

Part 1: The media’s stunning Baltimore betrayal: Demonizing protesters & giving police brutality a pass

Cable news has distinguished itself as an authoritarian instrument most invested in protecting the powerful.

Jack Mirkinson, Salon

Screen-Shot-2015-04-28-at-2.39.04-PM-620x412.pngTuesday, Apr 28, 2015 | Late on Monday evening, CNN’s Don Lemon, who had traveled to Baltimore to cover the ongoing unrest there, found himself speaking to the city’s mayor, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, and to Maryland governor Larry Hogan.

Lemon—who, despite his current near-parodic status, was relatively restrained here—quizzed the two politicians for nearly 11 minutes, until they all but ran away from him. The confrontational stance may have been welcome, but the questions themselves left much to be desired. The only thing Lemon wanted to know was why, in his words, protesters had been given “too much leeway,” and why police had not been allowed to use “more restraints” against them sooner.

Part 2: What we talk about when we talk about black protesters: A history of right-wing dogwhistles

Ronald Reagan perfected the use of coded racial language to court white voters. His strategy persists to this day.

Tuesday, Apr 28, 2015 | “Liberals won’t get angry about the #BaltimoreRiots unless the rioters start carrying off loot in untaxed plastic bags.” So said Rep. Steve Stockman, R- Texas, in response to the violence in Baltimore last night.

What is perhaps most striking about this type of language, in ample display over the last several hours, is just how layered much of it is in language that subtly dehumanizes and pathologizes the black Baltimore residents who have come out to protest the death of Freddie Gray, who was killed in police custody earlier this month.

Under the Congressional Review Act, Congress has the power to review — and invalidate — any new rules issued by federal agencies. The resolution of disapproval already has 13 co-sponsors, all Republicans.

Part 2: Stop cable companies from blocking fast and affordable Internet access

Sign the petition to Congress: “19 states have laws blocking towns and cities from providing fast, publicly owned Internet access. Support the Municipal Broadband Act, which would preserve the right of cities and municipalities to build their own broadband networks.”

CREDO Action

Submitted by Evergreene Digest Contributing Editor Will Shapira.

municipal_broadband_180x180.pngCities and towns around the country are developing municipal broadband networks that are both faster and less expensive than the services offered by big cable and Internet companies.

But local governments in 19 states don’t have that option due to anti-consumer state laws that ban or restrict municipal broadband. These state laws are a cynical attempt to preserve the profits of big cable companies – and now we have an opportunity to overturn all of them at once.

Senators Cory Booker and Claire McCaskill have introduced the Community Broadband Act, which would preempt these state laws and allow municipalities to compete directly with big cable companies by offering their own broadband service.

We need to show grassroots support for this vital bill now and fight for the fast, affordable Internet access all Americans deserve.

Rolling Stone’s Failed Journalism Was A Slap In The Face To Rape Survivors

Rolling-Stone-fail-1.jpgMonday, April, 6th, 2015 | The mainstream media has already said volumes about the future of Rolling Stone’s UVA story as a case study of how not to cover a story in journalism classes. Few would dispute the numerous mistakes in fact checking and judgment associated with this story.

Rolling Stone deserves all the fall out it gets about its failed reporting. There will be reams of reporting will focus on ramifications to the reputations of UVA and the Fraternity named in the story. Far less attention will be paid to the ramifications to present and future survivors of rape.  Many will equate a discredited news story with a discredited claim that “Jackie” was raped.
