Storyline

Are we controlled? To what extent and by whom? What does it mean for humanity's future? The enormous implications of these questions deter most of us who must deal with the daily consequences of the answers. STATE OF MIND digs deeply into the sources to reveal that much of that which we believe to be truth has been deception, deliberately implanted in our consciousness to erect a "tyranny over the minds of men". From cradle to grave our parents, peers, institutions and society inform our values and behaviors. But this process has been hijacked. STATE OF MIND examines the science that has evolved over generations to keep us firmly in place and maintain the status quo so that dictators, power brokers and corporate puppeteers may profit from our ignorance and slavery. From the anvil of compulsory schooling to media and entertainment, we are kept in perpetual bondage to the ideas that shape our actions. STATE OF MIND delves into the abyss to bring to light the manipulation and shocking ... Written by Matthew Hart (IX)

Previous Reviewer, Ironhorse, Pretty Much Has It Nailed
16 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Critical thinking, the Sociology of Knowledge, an Open Mind. The existence of this film undercuts its message somewhat. Human primates appreciate freedom and reflection, sometimes more than material well being. Stability, safety, law & order, justice more than hyper individualism. Increased levels of self-awareness permit the choice of even self denial for the greater good. Cooperation is present in society as well as competition. Paranoia, xenophobia, aggression, anger from the hind brain, enlightenment and harmony from the fore brain? The Western and Eastern social thinking and research complement each other. Watch the move but like Ironhorse says: "Think about it"
