Cognitive Dissonance: The Single Most Important Topic in the Liberty MovementSubmitted by TommyPaine on Sun, 03/30/2014 - 15:49
Getting people to wake up and see the truth for what it is is the single most important topic in the liberty movement.
The single biggest obstacle for people who cannot or will not see truth is their own cognitive dissonance.
I saw a post by gregroberts in another thread where he posted a James Corbett video on Cognitive Dissonance. Thanks, Greg. As usual, Corbett does an excellent job.
In addition, I found a few other vids that are interesting about the subject (and not too long to watch).
I am starting this thread to see if people here have good resources about how to BREAK other peoples' cognitive dissonance when we introduce them to liberty issues.
If we can learn to do that, even in a small number of cases (but more than we do now), the liberty movement can grow much faster. It is my opinion that those who want to control others have a strong understanding of human psychology, including the phenomenon of cognitive dissonance.
It is about time we understand how to communicate more effectively to promote truth, and other peoples' cognitive dissonance is the main thing standing in our way.
Here is the James Corbett video:
This is a short video on the topic, including the man himself who originally did the experiments on this subject in the 1950's:
And one more video that has some pretty powerful stuff:
