How Your Friends And The Media Use Neuro-Linguistic Programming To Control You

You may be wondering, “what is neuro-linguistic programming?” To put it simply, NLP consists of a combo of verbal and physical cues that cause you to react/think/feel in a very specific way. NLP comes with a number of positive effects, but it also ranks among one of the most effective mind control tactics of the 20th century.

When done correctly, NLP relies on confusing and vague language to disorient a target and convince them into doing something they might not otherwise consider. It’s akin to hypnotism but slightly more scientifically proven and less overt, which makes it all the more dangerous.

Neuro-linguistic programming emerged as a light version of mind control techniques used by the CIA on MK-Ultra victims in the '50s and '60s. While the CIA inundated those poor souls with extreme amounts of drugs and verbal cues, NLP users simply overwhelm their victims with vague phrasing and physical cues. While it sounds like the stuff of sci-fi movies, this mind control seems to actually work, and how the media may be using NLP to control everyone you know.
