Cambridge Analytica: the central question, avoided like the plague.

"What kind of person uses knowledge of another's psychological insecurities to manipulate that person and thus alter their behaviour to meet the perceived needs of the manipulator, even if that causes harm to others?" "What kind of organisation uses uses knowledge of a community's psychological insecurities to manipulate that community and thus alter their behaviour to meet the perceived needs of the manipulator, even if that causes harm to others?"

This is the central question about Cambridge Analytica, media propaganda and how political and economic power functions throughout our society. "In what kind of social system is this normalised?" And we see that this applies equally to all hierarchically violent social systems: Capitalism, Communism, Theocracy, Socialism ..... have all presented dysfunctional behaviour patterning. Unless we answer these questions, honestly, led by the evidence, we are powerless to counter that behaviour.

Kindest regards

Thank you for reading this blog. All we need to do is be really honest, responsive to the evidence we find,and ready to reassess when new evidence emerges. The rest is easy.
