    Keep pretending. Obamacare depends on the individual mandate to work. Even went to the Supreme Court. But you know that. It's all a pretense.

    I do not believe the American people would approve of currently practised persuasion science if they understood its potency.

    Nobody likes to be manipulated. Especially when its not just an "art" but the application of cognitive neuroscience.

    People who understand how our brain functions better than we do, using that knowledge to manipulate us.

    High tech lying. Bad juju.

    Most of the time when these politicians get caught with a hot mic they are sayin something crooked.

    Meanwhile here these guys get "caught" showing that they have confidence because they are correct in their position.
    Mmmmm, not quite. More like, "If we keep repeating our lies the American people will believe them". Didn't some German come up with a theory about that?

    The problem is that its called "persuasion", which evokes artful crafting of a message to cast ones position in the best light.

    What it actually is at this point is the artful application of a collection of "backdoors" and "exploits" in our cognitive hardwiring that bypass our filters in various ways to cynically manipulate feelings and beliefs.

    It simply isn't "just language".

    What lies?

    Didn't some German come up with a theory about that?
    As a means to divert from the person trying to "national"-ly "socialize" the country?

    I'm not sure you'd really want to play that game of "which politician is closer to nazi in their actions"... Or even which politicians are the biggest liars...

    But you probly still believe the lie that double the cost is free healthcare (and it's not even in effect yet).
