    STEPS TO IDENTIFYING THE BRAINWASHED?

    Look for signs of withdrawal from life. Brainwashing victims tend to be listless, withdrawn, and devoid of whatever personality marked them before they were brainwashed.[12] This is particularly noticeable in both cult victims and spouses in an abusive relationship.
    • Some victims may internalize their anger, leading to depression and a host of physical disorders, possibly even to suicide. Others may vent their anger on anyone they see as the cause of their problems, often through verbal or physical confrontation.

    Rinsing Out the Brainwashing?

    MAKE THE SUBJECT AWARE THAT HE OR SHE HAS BEEN BRAINWASHED. This realization is often accompanied by denial and anguish, as the subject begins to question things without having had practice in questioning things. Gradually, the subject should become aware of how he or she was manipulated.

    1. Decrypt media spin.
    The media uses many different tools and angles to sensationalize things that aren’t inherently sensational. “Experts generally agree” can mean a community college professor and “recent surveys find” can mean the polling of 10 people.
    Be wary of any claims where the sources aren’t explicitly stated. (See this article for understanding media spin.)

    Time to whip ISIS on the Internet, Part 3: Getting public policy right?
    by: James Glassman

    The White House and Congress, starting in the mid-1990s, took an unequivocal, aggressive posture in promoting Internet freedom.
    IN a ringing speech IN 2010, SECRETARY OF STATE HILARY CLINTON LINKED INTERNET FREEDOM TO US FOREIGN POLICY GOALS. “WE STAND,” SHE SAID,“for a single Internet where all of humanity has equal access to knowledge and ideas…INFORMATION FREEDOM SUPPORTS THE PEACE AND SECURITY THAT PROVIDES A FOUNDATION FOR GLOBAL PROGRESS.” – See more at: http://www.techpolicydaily.com/internet/isis-on-the-internet-part-3/#sthash.FP883qPU.dpuf

    Just as important, the White House understood the power of strategic communications in winning both a war of ideas and a kinetic war against terrorists.

    UNFORTUNATELY, OUR PLATFORM WAS LARGELY DISMANTLED WHEN PRESIDENT OBAMA TOOK OFFICE
    and was then slowly rebuilt as recognition of the ISIS threat grew. This year, under Richard Stengel (one of my successors as Under Secretary for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs), the State Department has achieved a higher level of seriousness and intensity in using communications to fight terror. – See more at: http://www.techpolicydaily.com/internet/isis-on-the-internet-part-3/#sthash.FP883qPU.dpuf

    Three Parts:Recognizing Brainwashing TacticsIdentifying the BrainwashedRinsing Out the Brainwashing
    Part 1 of 3: Recognizing Brainwashing Tactics
    Brainwashing techniques have been documented as far back as the Egyptian Book of the Dead and used by abusive spouses and parents, self-proclaimed psychics, cult leaders, secret societies, revolutionaries, and dictators to bring others under their thumbs and manipulate them seemingly willingly.[2] These techniques don’t involve fantastic weapons or exotic powers, but they do involve an understanding of the human psyche and a desire to exploit it. By understanding these techniques better, you can learn how to protect yourself and others from them.
    Understand that those who attempt to brainwash others tend to prey upon the weak and vulnerable. Not everyone is a target for mind control, but certain people are more susceptible to forms of it at different times.
    Be aware of people who try to isolate you or someone you know from outside influences. As people who are experiencing a personal tragedy or other major life change are inclined to feel lonely, a skillful brain-washer works to amplify those feelings of loneliness. This isolation can take several forms.

    Part 2 of 3: Identifying the Brainwashed
    Look for signs of withdrawal from life. Brainwashing victims tend to be listless, withdrawn, and devoid of whatever personality marked them before they were brainwashed.[12] This is particularly noticeable in both cult victims and spouses in an abusive relationship.
    • Some victims may internalize their anger, leading to depression and a host of physical disorders, possibly even to suicide. Others may vent their anger on anyone they see as the cause of their problems, often through verbal or physical confrontation.

    Make the subject aware that he or she has been brainwashed. This realization is often accompanied by denial and anguish, as the subject begins to question things without having had practice in questioning things. Gradually, the subject should become aware of how he or she was manipulated.

    TEEN BRAINS AREN’T FULLY FORMED
    Parents of stubborn teenagers rejoice, or at least relax: That adolescent attitude stems, in part, from the vagaries of brain development.
    THE GRAY MATTER OF THE BRAIN PEAKS JUST BEFORE PUBERTY and is pruned back down throughout adolescence, with some of the most dramatic development happening in the frontal lobes, the seat of judgment and decision-making.
    A 2005 study published in the journal Child Development found that the parts of the brain responsible for multitasking don’t fully mature until we’re 16 or 17 years old. And research presented at the BA Festival of Science in 2006 revealed that teens also have a neural excuse for self-centeredness. When considering an action that would affect others, teens were less likely than adults to use the medial prefrontal cortex, an area associated with empathy and guilt. Teens learn empathy by practicing socializing, the researchers said. So much for grounding them until they’re 20.
    OUR BRAINS BURN THROUGH ENERGY
    Credit: null
    The modern brain is an energy hog. The organ accounts for about 2 percent of body weight, but it uses about 20 percent of the oxygen in our blood and 25 percent of the glucose (sugars) circulating in our bloodstream, according to the American College of Neuropsychopharmacology.
    These energy requirements have spurred a debate among anthropologists about what fueled the evolution of big brains in the first place. MANY RESEARCHERS CREDIT MEAT, CITING EVIDENCE OF HUNTING IN OUR EARLY ANCESTORS. But meat would have been an unreliable food source, say other scientists. A 2007 study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science found that modern-day chimps know how to dig for calorie-rich tubers on the savanna. Perhaps our ancestors did the same, boosting their brainpower with veggies.
    As for what motivated the brain to balloon in size, there are THREE MAJOR HYPOTHESES: CLIMATE CHANGE, THE DEMANDS OF ECOLOGY, AND SOCIAL COMPETITION.
