Edward Bernays, the nephew of Sigmund Freud. The father of Public Relations. He decided to use what he saw in wartimes with propoganda and combine it with the pyscho-analyst studies of his uncle-& use it to manipulate the unconscious minds of the masses (click here).
George Hill, the then-president of the National Tobacco Organization, was one of his first clients. He came to Bernays to help him break the taboo women had against smoking. Wait til you see how he pulled it off. The parrallels today are STAGGERING… at 30:30 he’s going to describe EXACTLY what Barack Obama just did to win the election!
On a side note, while Bernays was now rich and powerful, Sigmund Freud was writhing in the throes of poverty… That was when Bernays began to send his uncle money and help him publish and of course MARKET his books and ideas… Knowledge is power… enjoy.
