Is the entire human species being brainwashed by society? Brainwashing is the practice of coercively influencing someone's worldview. By doing this, it assaults the fundamental principles of the human brain, frequently leading to the emergence of a completely new personality. Someone's life might be in danger by becoming brainwashed and having new ideals ingrained in their head without any justification.
The use of brainwashing to hurt others has occurred frequently throughout history.
39 members of the well-known cult/religious organization Heaven's Gate committed suicide, along with its leader. They were founded in 1974 and held the conviction that they would become alien beings if they rejected their human nature and gave up their human bodies as vessels.
Two prime examples of brainwashing used in the modern society consists of ABA and social media. Known as Applied Behavior Analysis, ABA is a treatment for people with autism. So called therapy forcibly changes the person’s behavior, teaching necessary skills for life and preventing them from dangerous behavior. Social media is open to almost every part of the world. It contains facts and truth, but also consists of numbers false information and powerful messages that could attack and change the human brain.
Reading a story on social media only shows readers a relatively small portion of the whole image, which blinds them to the bigger picture. Understanding how brainwashing is used in society might help you process what is happening and possibly help you avoid it. First, the brainwasher weakens the victim or assaults a weak target. He isolates his victim next, undermines their self-worth, and continues the process until the victim has thoroughly internalized the new belief. It is essential to consider things from several angles to stop them.
