the wave: lessons in manipulation

There are many ways to manipulate people:
Jay Doubleyou: propaganda, public relations and manufacturing consent
Jay Doubleyou: positive power and influence
Jay Doubleyou: behaviourism >>> and learning objectives >>> and the common european framework
Jay Doubleyou: bread and circuses

Some experiments have been conducted to show how people can be very easily manipulated:
Jay Doubleyou: jane elliott - brown eyes vs blue eyes
Jay Doubleyou: milgram experiment

This is the film of a famous experiment in the 1980s:

The Third Wave was an experimental social movement created by high school history teacher Ron Jones to explain how the German populace could accept the actions of the Nazi regimeduring the Second World War.[1][2][dead link] While he taught his students about Nazi Germany during his "Contemporary World History" class, Jones found it difficult to explain how the German people could accept the actions of the Nazis, and decided to create a social movement as a demonstration of the appeal of fascism. Over the course of five days, Jones conducted a series of exercises in his classroom emphasizing discipline and community, intended to model certain characteristics of the Nazi movement. As the movement grew outside his class and began to number in the hundreds, Jones began to feel that the movement had spiraled out of control. He convinced the students to attend a rally where he claimed the announcement of a Third Wave presidential candidate would be televised. Upon their arrival, the students were presented with a blank channel. Jones told his students of the true nature of the movement as an experiment in fascism, and presented to them a short film discussing the actions of Nazi Germany.[3]
