Overview


What if there are identifiable shortcuts your brain utilizes to create settled beliefs in small local communities, and what if those shortcuts could be "hacked" in a technological society to influence you in ways you can't easily perceive?

While many are prone to think of propaganda as lies or distortions, there are techniques crafted and refined since the early 1900's that make that simplistic notion laughable.

Your ignorance of these techniques and the Idea Bullies use them give them vast power over your future, your finances and your children.

Idea bullying is one group's ability to win consistently in the marketplace of ideas. With enough money, well-connected friends and the techniques just mentioned no other ideas can compete.

Democracy becomes calcified in orthodoxy --one idea to rule them all. Historically this has been called manufacturing of consent, crystallizing public opinion, public relations, and just plain old "propaganda."

Learn how the roots of stagecraft and story narrative have displaced an objective search for truth and why this abuse of language is always the first sign of tyranny.

About the Author

A teacher by nature and a contrarian by design, Michelle has a keen ability to simplify the complex and make seminal older works accessible to the modern mind in a fresh and easy rendering. She has previously authored two works: Fast Track Your Recovery from a Total Knee Replacement: How to Eliminate Pain and Pain Medicine the Quickest Way Possible and Color and Laugh Your Way to Knee Replacement Recovery. While the writing of One Idea to Rule Them All by a physical therapist may seem like a metaphysical oddity or quirk of the universe, it is simply the product of an active mind in the quest for truth. The barriers to accurate perception today are plentiful and well laid out in this book, which serves as a concise guide to unveiling the machinations of idea bullying so that they are easily recognizable by those of high school age and beyond; to those of both right and left persuasion-in short, to anyone who senses in their bones that something in the world is off-kilter and can't quite put their finger on the source.
