Paths are the best way to keep exploring content you're interested in. We'll create a stream of content for you filled with the best videos related to “What is Brainwashing?”.

In this lecture we investigate the phenomenon of brainwashing. We describe the 20th century British psychiatrist William Sargant's ideas regarding how the victim of brainwashing is similar to the religious convert and the therapy patient who undergo 'sudden conversions'. We finish the lecture by looking at how fear can be used as tool for 'mass brainwashing'. For more videos visit our site at http://academyofideas.com
