Joost Meerloo Quotes

I have just heard about Joost Meerloo who was a psychiatrist who specialized in the area of thought control techniques used by totalitarian regimes.

There are many good quotes of his so I thought I would share one and a link to a complete list as below for anyone who is interested.

"He who dictates and formulates the words and phrases we use, he who is master of the press and radio, is master of the mind. Repeat mechanically your assumptions and suggestions, diminish the opportunity for communicating dissent and opposition. This is the formula for political conditioning of the masses".
