Pavlov’s Duck: Behaviorism and Control of Society

Obedience is learned through the reinforcement of reward.

Do the elites control society? At the very least, they have developed techniques to steer it, including incorporating the integrated Pavlovian/Skinnerian conditioned response technique that has been used in animal training and reinforced with an incentive (or scheduled reward). The same concept works on humans, too.

The values of compliance are taught to 20th and 21st Century populations through electronic stimulation, opiating foods, misinformation and the illusion of choice.

An uncovered newsreel from the 1960s demonstrates a series of performing ducks and chickens who have been trained to turn on lights, play musical instruments and even dance via Pavlovian conditioning.

The basis of these same techniques are used to control the population through various inputs of consumer rewards, cable television, the pageantry of democracy, celebrity role models, gambling, etc. which all reinforce the expected behavior and desired attitudes.

Operant conditioning, outlined in the graphic above, illustrates the basic system of rewards and punishment that allows the controller to condition behavior in the subject, though more advanced influence over actions require a more sophisticated, and perhaps subtle, incentive schedule.

Author Aldous Huxley, who is tied to the core of the Eugenics philosophy of rule, has warned – along with others – that the scientific techniques, including Ivan Pavlov and B.F. Skinner, are leading us down the path of the “Ultimate Revolution” where people learn to love their servitude.

I am a behavior analysis and this article is not correct. The laws of behavior operate at all times and for all people. There is no magic wand that the elites have that we don't. We have the same power, some just choose to give it away. This is misinformation the way BA is presented.

To: "Donna Matrix"

Your statement "I am a behavior analysis..." makes no sense. Sorry.

The masses of sheeple ARE largely brainwashed. There are lots of well behaved Goyim out there who trust the MSM and "the authorities" in general.

Ignorance is bliss. The obedient Goyim believe that great truths are just "conspiracy theories", because the MSM and their pundits say so. The "well-adjusted" Goyim find a simplistic peace of mind by going along with the program.

Those who speak truth to power are a courageous minority group.

To Dr Goldstein,

Your use of the label "goyim" and "well behaved" indicate you are suffering from the same brainwashing you describe.

To any intelligent and mature person with serious independent critical thinking ability the terms and mindset you exhibit are to be found vulgar and archaic.

One would have to travel back to the 1800's in the deep south of America to hear such concepts.

Very simple! A human is the ultimate in the hierarchy of domestic animals.

Humans have a pretty good idea of the mechanisms insisting on conformity. Yet they conform even knowingly to things not in their best interest. They cannot resist!

To Dr. Goldstein,

Thank you for the very brave and honest comment regarding the goyim and the dumbed-down and brainwashed masses of sheeple.

To Anonymous,

I suggest you do some remedial reading of the Sanhedrin,the Protocols of Zion, and I also highly recommend "The Creature from Jekyll Island". To quote one of my heroes: "If you expect to be ignorant and free, you want what never was, and never will be." Thomas Jefferson

As retired HS teacher, always found the bell system to be obvious provocation of desired behaviors. Loud annoying main bell (in multiple state school systems), pre-bell bell, post-bell bell, alternative schedule bell. Seemingly endless opportunities. Always felt I'd get off couch in summertime when someone rang a bell. Public ed conditioning, of course not!

Bizarrely, visited German gymnasiums - no bells; students just moved quietly when teacher dismissed. Maybe they were clued in on Pavlov/ Skinner or had more sophisticated techniques.
