Our 59″ x 50″ wall hanging, the “Zucking Manipulation” fractured flag, documents the digital forces mobilized by the most powerful companies and wealthiest individuals in history who actively manipulate society for their personal profit.
They designed and control our attention economy and the misinformation we are fed by the few monopolistic platforms.
Their high priests are behavioral psychologists and social scientists following in the footsteps of Ely Bernays – Freud’s nephew twice over, his mother was Freud’s sister Anna, and his father was the brother of Freud’s wife Martha – who literally wrote the 1928 book titled “Propaganda,” to Joseph Goebbels who admired and applied Bernays’ work to his propaganda on Hitler’s behalf and reportedly said if you repeat something enough times it becomes the truth, “Witch Hunt,” “Witch Hunt,” “Witch Hunt,” to Harvard’s B.F. Skinner who manipulated rats in mazes, to Stanford’s BJ Fogg who systematized the science of addiction and behavioral manipulation, to Fogg’s students such as Nir Eyal who authored a guide to addicting “users” via digital devices called “Hooked: How to Build Habit-Forming Products,” where he explains how addictive gambling and slot machine psychology can be used to induce cravings by providing dopamine “hits” to our brains, to Dopamine Labs’ service: a system that can be implemented into any app designed to build habitual behavior.
Understanding the forces behind our digital addiction, and their motivations, is the first step to exposing and holding them accountable for their insatiable greed and harm to our democracy.
The second step is for the public to demand accountability. Please add your voice by commenting below (be sure to register first), sharing this site, and publicly hanging our fractured flag to help educate others.
