An excellent book on persuasion by psychologist Robert Cialdini – how to do it and how to avoid its effects being applied to you. Every Leftist organizer and/or agitator should take a look at this. You might even be able to find it at your local library. It’s a quick and easy read. The main techniques of persuasion, each with its own chapter are:
- Commitment and Consistency
- Social Proof
These methods of persuasion are very powerful and can elicit an automatic, involuntary response; humans are hardwired so-to-speak to respond to them even when they are conscious of the fact that they are being solicited.
