“One Sentence Persuasion” report by Blair Warren? It goes something like this:
“People will do anything for those who encourage their dreams, justify their failures, allay their fears, confirm their suspicions and help them throw rocks at their enemies.”
In this report, Blair Warren condenses his report in this single sentence, so it’s easy for us to remember. He explains how politicians and cults manipulate the masses by confirming suspicions, how commercials manipulate our desires, and how strangers break up families by encouraging unsatisfied dreams and unrequited love.
Blair does not bother mentioning the label, “devil’s advocate,” although this is exactly what he’s talking about. That’s why he knows that some people could be offended by the concepts in his report; it’s not within the cognitive commitments of the average person to understand that big business and big politics does not have his interest at heart.
Basically, by using the concepts in “One Sentence Persuasion” to get what we want, we’re using the emotional securities and cognitive commitments of immature people in our favour; we’re playing the devil’s advocate.
I can give you one example of this. In fact, I’ll give you an example from an article I recently read at Elliot Wave International, “Bailing Out Speculators Just Like a Bad Liver Transplant” which gives us a pretty good analysis of how this “bailout” by the U.S. Gov’t is really working.
In this case, the smokescreen is by mainstream media, namely NY Times, to stroke the emotional securities of it’s readership with the soft earmark of “Quarantine.” Mainstream media reporters do the bidding of powerful people behind the scenes. Fox News, for example, is the most powerful, Tavistock trained, devil’s advocate in mainstream news; they serve the agenda of their masters – not the people.
Therefore, this begs the question: Do you have any problem playing the devil’s advocate considering so many other people are doing it? That depends on what you want – doesn’t it? The end justifys the means, perhaps. That depends on your desires which should always play second fiddle to your prospect.
In any type of communication, the other person always sets boundaries induced by their cognitive commitments created by their emotional securities. Those emotional securities are set by culture and social mood, which the average person follows.
Are you an average person? I don’t think so, or else you wouldn’t be here. For this reason, I’m giving you “One Sentence Persuasion.”
