    Oh, Lord.

    Crackpots come out of the woodwork, don't they?

    Funny part is, I bet you every politician engages in some sort of "hypnotic" technique to capture the attention of people.

    It's called being a politician.

    Its called being a good public speaker. All good speeches are hypnotic. I realized this last year when I gave a speech full of energy and metaphor- it didn't go over well. :m167:

    Speak in a slow, deep voice, employing subtle rhetoric and repeating things. Keep a steady rhythm. It is like music; it puts people in a trance. Then you can get them to believe what you're saying.

    That, too.

    You're right, not all politicians are good public speakers.

    This made me draw a connection to the "why do you say you hate people thread". If people are so easily hypnotized by public speaking then they can hardly be kept responsible for being "sheep". And thusly "hateing people" seems unfair in such a situation. Just a thought.

    I'm not easily hypnotised, because I've got a strong sense of self, because I'm not a sheep.

    Bush may not have been the best speaker, he might have been nervous sometimes or something, but at certain times he can be an amazing speaker. An example would be the 911 speech, if you watch it (though to me it makes me really sad that all those people died and angry at terrorists therefore I, personally, wouldn't watch it), he was simply amazing!

    The point of public speaking is to get people to believe you and trust you. Sounds like Obama is doing just that. Good for him. The response to persuasive public speaking is the ability to think critically. Too bad many USA citizens - and others! - have decided that critical thinking isn't as important as it used to be...

    EDIT: But still - that's creepy!
