let me know where to start to dig guys.

oh and just for kev :agree:

that is  what i used. it was original called laftons notes on brainwashing.

Quote from: "Ursus"
One of the reasons these hell-holes achieve such a profound cult following is that they create a "special" little world, with that oh-so-special knowledge, and this is all held together by that "special" erudite language that only those elite and hip enlightened souls who are "in the know" are familiar with. You want to rip that fantasy out on its ear and show exactly what that language means from a different perspective, namely from the perspective of those who have suffered through the double-speak. To do that effectively, you gotta be able to talk that lingo.

i wrote a paper on the lauton notes from ww2 prisoner study. i was able to connect how they brainwashed the POW's and how the behavioral modification schools or what ever you want to call them, us the same things to brain wash the students and parents. the similarity's were too close for comfort.
