Resist the devil
"What made me do that?" Sometimes we stop and wonder. Or perhaps we may question ourselves, Why did I buy this, or think that, or make a particular decision?
Often we can trace our decisions and actions to the recommendations of friends. Or we may recall having seen or heard an advertisement extolling the merits of some product or place or lifestyle. But often the answers to such questions of what and why are obscure. Uneasiness then may set in as the thought comes, Have I unconsciously been persuaded by some suggestion craftily conveyed through modern techniques for the manipulation of people's mentalities? What about subliminal advertising and psychographics—advertising designed to appeal to the psychology of certain groups? Could I have been unknowingly influenced through one of these modes? If so, can one ever feel safe?
