Do you have *any* data on the efficacy of any of those techniques? Do you have any data--rather than speculation--showing their deployment? You have a lot of information of the involvement of the MilIntel crowd in Hollywood and Madison Ave., but it's all of this sort-of vanilla historical flavor that requires reading and remembering names, places and dollar amounts, so you routinely neglect it in favor of this scientific-sounding (i.e., pseudoscientific) language about some shadowy, all-powerful technique discernible behind movie posters.
Though, I suppose, casting a discerning eye on movie posters is worth it from time to time:

(you can see Olga Kurylenko's labia)
So out with it.
Up above I see two "theories": interference and inoculation. IS THERE ANY DATA THAT SUPPORTING THEM? Anyone with an internet connection can learn all about things like Jose Delgado's experiments, or Sidney Gottlieb, on any of that mess, but why is there no data supporting "memetics?"
I don't want to see any works of theory about mind-control. I'm too old to believe that something like MK-ULTRA happened--except that there's DOCUMENTATION OF IT HAPPENING. I know that HMWs has data on lots and lots of involvement of Mil-intel in the culture industry--I just know that he also has a strange theory that uses scientific-sounding jargon and a lot of hypothesizing about it, but have yet to see anything compelling. Where is the real-world evidence of occurance--where are the historians and where are the documents? If you want to talk about Transformers 2 or Independence Day getting USG money and aid from the military, go ahead, that's certainly a psyop if there ever were one. But where is the documentation on this other supposed "science" of movie posters and news story being employed?
