Oven-ready? Are you persuaded?

28 November, 2019

• THIS oven-ready ‘“Get Brexit Done” shtick echoes Vance Packard’s The Hidden Persuaders (1957) which showed commercial interests’ subliminal messages to manipulate purchasing ‘decisions’ based on experiments to discover the best techniques for persuasion.

“They see us as bundles of daydreams, misty-hidden yearnings, guilt complexes, irrational emotional blockages,etc…” Who buys this sh** 62 years on?
