Are You Being Manipulated?
A great, short read from Seth Godin on the forces of manipulation and how to combat it when happens to you:
Pundits, politicians, hustlers, unethical marketers, hucksters and grifters seek to manipulate people every day.
Manipulation is pushing for a change that benefits the manipulator, not us. It’s often based on misinformation. Mostly, the test for manipulation is: “if you knew what they know, would you be happy to do what they’re asking?”
Godin lists 5 questions you to ask to help filter out the nonsense. It’s well worth the read.
Related quote of the day:
The television is ‘real’. It is immediate, it has dimension. It tells you what to think and blasts it in. It must be right. It seems so right. It rushes you on so quickly to its own conclusions your mind hasn’t time to protest, ‘What nonsense!’.
~ Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451
