Storyline

According to many authorities, since the late 1950's subliminal content has been tested and delivered through all forms of media, at an increasingly alarming rate. "PROGRAMMING THE NATION?" examines the purported uses, influences and potential subconscious side-effects of what's going on beneath the surface of advertising, film, music and political propaganda. Even the US military has been accused of using this technology in their Psychological Operations Unit, (PSY OPS) campaign. This socially relevant documentary not only traces the history of this phenomenon, but seeks to determine the validity and potential threat that may or may not exist. Do you ever find yourself doing or buying things without any conscious reasoning? Why has consumer debt in America risen over 50% since 1990? How is it possible that the United States consumes about 25% of the world's resources while only making up 4.5% of the world's population? Are we all part of an elaborate scheme which has been programming... Written by Anonymous

Are we Programmed?
19 August 2011 | by See all my reviews

I must say I really enjoyed this documentary and all of the insight it provided. Some parts seemed like unnecessary points that have been brought up long before, however I later came to appreciate this as part of the all encompassing material to an interesting topic. The film seems to bring up everything that has to do with subliminal messaging, from the obvious, to the not so obvious, to the what should be obvious but undetectable to our desensitized nature. Providing answers and raising new inquiries on the topic, the film educates while sparking our curiosity towards the main true question. Have we been programmed as a nation?
