Nudge, nudge: the official program of focused propaganda by 'behavioural change units'

Never mind that this video comes from Katie Hopkins who polarises opinions... 

Should governments be so keen to tailor propaganda messages in this manipulative way? Even if, as many believe (though clinicians themselves have reservations) the vaccination program is beneficial?

We like to think of ourselves as mostly rational citizens who, as Tony Benn said, merely loan power to Parliament and expect it to be returned to us. It looks as though we're to be treated as gullible jerks.

I really don't know about the safety and efficacy of vaccines or whatever these are, and Dr Vernon Coleman has doubted them for years - but layering propaganda over uncertainty is definitely to be deplored.

Dear Katie hasn't been seen around much of late. Wonder why.

JD comments:

Yes, 'mind capture' by those 'behavioural change units' As William Wildblood echoes what Bruce Charlton has been saying for a long time -

"We must go beyond a worldly viewpoint to a spiritual one. That is the only guarantee that we can be saved from the loss of soul which is the aim of the demonic powers who are far more concerned with capturing our minds than just locking us up in our houses. It is this mind capture which lies behind the attempted imposition of all the anti-spiritual beliefs of our time."

This is not new of course Goya was horrified by the consequences of the French Revolution - https://theylaughedatnoah.blogspot.com/2018/02/the-cream-of-reason-revisited-by-jd.html

The Russian revolution was also an atheist cause 'religion is the opiate of the people' and in Spain the Republicans murdered nuns and priests on an industrial scale.

Unfortunately this time the 'demonic' powers have modern digital technology to help them to destroy our souls. The film Soylent Green was set in 2022. Pure coincidence of course.


This book is worth reading to help avoid all the mind control and relentless propaganda

I bought it more than ten years ago and it is still a constant reference. The book is modelled on Joyce's Finnegan's Wake in that it begins and ends in the middle of the same sentence. Once you get used to what he calls his Joycetification it is definitely a first class book.

Is there a link to the document Katie is quoting from?

Katie is also leading us to think in a way based on her opinions of the document she has in her hands.

I would much prefer to analyse that document for myself without another persons bias intervening.

She appears to be an anti-vaxxer.

That is a group of people, generally mothers, who can doubt the efficacy of vaccines precisely because most parents are vaccinating their children.

They are selfish, and exhibit full Dunning-Kruger.

Sackerson said...

@CherryPie: I don't know but a diligent Googler might find it.

@P: possibly, but there are wider power issues too, please see Sumption's lecture linked in previous post.

Oh dear, straight in with the 77 brigade label of anti- vaxxer, deal with the facts please.
Is Mike Yeadon ex CEO of Pfizer an anti-vaxxer as well?

Do the current experimental medicines meet the definition of vaccine?
Do they prevent infection?
Do they prevent transmission?
Are the side effects worth the risk for varying age groups?
As Mike Yeadon has already said "If you were not advised to take the flu vaccine, there is no reason to take the Covid one.
Remember people under 70 in reasonable health are more at risk from flu than from Covid."
