I'm especially interested in what he said about how the methods of managing people have shifted from controlling by force to manipulation through shaping public attitudes and opinions. He makes a good point that it's so ingrained in our culture that the fact that it exists is hidden in plain sight and yet no-one seems to question or even acknowledge its effect.
I'm waiting on my order to come in of the book "Captains of Consciousness: Advertising and the Roots of the Consumer Culture" (http://www.amazon.com/Captains-Consciousness-Advertising-Con...) to come in, written by a historian addressing the who's, where's, and why's of this all-encompassing Public Relations phenomenon.
There is also an incredible documentary that dabbles in these ideas you might of heard of, called Century of the Self http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/the-century-of-the-self/
I'm definitely guilty of doing this as it's my first day on here and I've accomplished things through a lot of trial and error heh. I wouldn't mind a more comprehensive FAQ or newbie guide page to help solve this issue as well, could be useful for more easily getting a feel for how the Hubski system works. Cheers!
