pretend psychologist -38 points 20 hours ago* last edited 20 hours ago The subject of john oliver came up when a colleague fellow psychologist and i were discussing politics a few months ago and although we were both in agreement regarding the general politically liberal inanity of the hbo show my friend was surprised when i explained that the real insidiousness of it is its unmistakably hypnotic structure and pacing I ended up pulling up an episode or two off of youtube to show her what i meant All of the segments i've ever seen from this show follow the same repetitive format 1 present some argumentation and facts for about 10 seconds then 2 quickly follow these up with a snarky quip Which themselves overwhelmingly take the form of complete non-sequitur or otherwise absurd metaphor before any rational processing of the preceding argument can take place in the mind of the viewer Further telling is that the only 'beats' or mental pauses in the show's pacing exist solely to highlight the approving laughter or applause of the studio audience 3 Repeat this basic formula without variation 20-40 times in a row And you have one of the 12-20 minute segments' that form the backbone of the show The end effect is obviously not to deliver information but rather to literally teach the viewers - on a subconscious level to mentally sociate derisive laughter with any person or opinion that is at odds with the narrative's take on the chosen issue And it accomplishes this by maintaining a strict adherence to a roughly 20-second cycle in which a stimulus is presented and a response is cued This is the sense in which the show is fundamentally hypnotic in effect - even moreso than its precursors in the genre The daily show colbert etc to my mind Oliver's show is representative of the media's increasing mastery of the methodologies of mass conditioning in fact it is almost such a perfect technical accomplishment that i would almost have to admire it on technical grounds permalink source save save-RES report give gold reply hide child comments 15 points 19 hours ago I usually RES tag people with quotes from their own comments I have you tagged with I mean if Trump's base who pretends to have morals is okay with it why would his detractors who have no morals be against it? You're a person who thinks people opposing Trump have no morals so quit your bullshit and don't try to push your propaganda rant as an impartial analysis of Oliver's show There's zero possibility you're being intellectually honest permalink source save save-RES parent report give gold reply ↑ -- O 41 points 19 hours ago Oh a fellow psychologist? According to your post history you're a network admin you know you can just say what you want to say without making up pointless lies to frame it permalink source save save-RES parent report give gold reply hide child comments 25 points 19 hours ago Just in case the psychologistnetwork administrator tries to delete it permalink source save save-RES parent report give gold reply - 6 points 18 hours ago Did everyone around you stand up and clap at the end? permalink source save save-RES parent report give gold reply 6 points 20 hours ago This is copypasta permalink source save save-RES parent report give gold reply hide child comments -1a -2 points 18 hours ago Can you link to other places you've seen it? permalink source save save-RES parent report give gold replied hide child comments -- -1 point 13 minutes ago They come here almost every week to post this permalink source save save-RES parent edit disable inbox replies delete reply 9 points 16 hours ago httpswwwredditcomrconspiracycomments569ziwpsychologist_trump_supporter_brilliantl y It's a year old also dumb and blatantly untrue That's not how media nor propaganda works That's just how you make people pay attention to what you have to say Any person who has even taken a course in psychology would recognize that this entire story is an attempt at fear mongering and making people doubt themselves as they have been brainwashed by the libs An attempt at planting a seed of doubt if you will Also when I wrote my comment this had like 8 upvotes or something permalink source save save-RES parent report give gold reply - deleted 11 months ago hide child comments source 76 points 11 months ago So if I have this straight When a comedian peppers his material with jokes and allusions designed to highlight the absurdity of the situations he's covering - that's not actually an example of the literally millennia-old tradition of satire but an attempt to indoctrinate the audience into somehow not taking in any information from the information they've just heard How does that work? Oliver Sean Spicer hid from reporters in a bush That's weird! Audience LOL You Whoa-oh! He's trying to brainwash you! You are the world's shittiest psychologist Not least due to your decision to tell us you were a psychologist - which I'm guessing is supposed to help to indoctrinate YOUR audience into assuming that you are somehow an authority on these kinds of things even when the total lack of common sense you've exhibited dispels that idea completely permalink source embed save save-RES save-RES edit disable inbox replies delete 31 points 11 months ago rIamverysmart permalink source embed save save-RES give gold hide child comments 3 points 11 months ago permalink source embed save save-RES parent give gold hide child comments 8 points 11 months ago The fact that he used the phrase shitlib inanity one sentence after claiming professional authority without a trace of self-awareness tells me that no he is not a psychologist permalink source embed save save-RES parent give gold User pretends to be psychologist to lend credence to laughable theory Deleted account when called out for doing same thing a year ago Meme
