Five Steps to Tyranny



A lot of familiar stuff, but I think it is good to brush up on it occasionally. The thing that is always most amazing to me is how quickly tyranny takes over in very average/normal settings.

Re: Five Steps to Tyranny

Is Demoralization the first step which takes about a few decades? I remember reading a book by a Russian KGB Agent (I continue to forget his name) who explained it so well, and it's uncanny we have a textbook example of it going on in the US.

Yuri Bezmenov! That's the guy. If this isn't the video, I highly recommend watching his videos online, too. Most of my comments about Russia stem from him and his statements (and a few other guys who were over there). Because it's so simple, people think it's impossible.

There was a DVD which you can view on YouTube (and then he made a limited number of small booklets which are hard to find, but some other books feature his additional works, I think).

Blue eyed children vs brown eyed children experiment - check
Milgram electric shock experiment - check
Stanford prison experiment - check

I guess that nothing has been done in social psychology in over 40 years.

Re: Five Steps to Tyranny

Has the video been taken down? I see a black rectangle.

Several other people have posted it on YouTube. I watched one of them.
